I could tell because the guns would begin to shoot two separate groups. Shots 1,3,5,7 ect were together and shots 2,4,6,8 were together. Usually about 1MOA apart.

Not a ton of experience but my 2cents
You just touched on a reason that McMillan doesn't use Aluminum Bedding blocks in their rifles.

However, if you do a good bedding job straight from the start, especially getting a good seat at the recoil lug it will never be a problem.
