Bedding with an aluminum block?

I have a new Sendero. I won't be shooting it for the first time until next week, but I had it apart and was curious about accurizing. The gun already has pillars and the recoil lug rests against an aluminum block. I've bedded one gun before (T/C Omega), and that involved installing the pillars myself and removing material behing the recoil lug. Is there the possibility for anything to be gained from bedding a Sendero? How does the presence of the aluminum block change what needs to be done.

Just thoughts for now...I'm pretty new to centerfire so I haven't dealt with bolt gun construction before. If the gun shoots at least .5 MOA I won't be touching it anyways.

ATH,your last sentence was pretty much my remark in a nutshell.
