Pillar bedding is a term that means metal to metal contact between the receiver and the floor
metal. so if the bedding block actually reaches the floor metal then you already have pillars
and need to bed only.

If you look at most inserts they do not reach the floor metal so washers should be used like
Fitch suggested.

Even with the bedding block/ insert I recommend bedding to minimize movement by the action
(No matter how well the insert is made it does not fit the action perfectly). After bedding you can
see the amount of contact it had with the insert because it will show through the bedding.
