Bedding a Sako A7 Tecomate

I just got this rifle and was thinking about bedding it. I have done several Rem 700 bed jobs but this Sako is very different. It is the the A7 action in a Bell & Carlson Medalist stock with the aluminum bedding block. It is completely free floated all the way back to the lug. I was wanting to bed the barrel swell area and action to the stock. Any tips on how to bed the A7 recoil lug area?? I have not found much info at all on bedding the A7. Is it even necessary?? Thanks for the help.

Gunwerks smiths suggest that you only bed the recoil lug on aluminum bedded rifles. Everything else is overkill. Good luck
