I recommend that you bed both the front and rear. Apply wax to the receiver and silicone to all threads. Use bedding compound sparingly. Some videos say to tighten the screws during epoxy cure. This a mistake. Finger tighten all screws only to squeeze out the excess epoxy. Torque on the screws should only be 1 in-lbs. That means take out the slack and stop turning when the screws start to resist being turned. The base will have negligible stress when the epoxy cures.
I use a long metal straight edge to check alignment of the receiver and rail with respect to the barrel. Be aware that many factory rifles have barrels that are installed crooked. I that case, I torque the rail with my fingers to get it closer to true with the barrel. There isn't much slop in the screw threads, so you can't take out much misalignment this way.
Also, the EGW screws that come stock are cheap. EGW or Brownells will sell you higher quality screws.
