Possible Problems Bedding a Browning A-Bolt?

Hello everyone, I've been recently thinking of getting a new aftermarket Boyds stock for my Browning A-Bolt and then bedding it. The only problem is that it is equipped with the BOSS system. Therefor, I am not sure if I could even bed the barreled action since browning uses a rubbery-type bedding compound to dampen the harmonics. Would this project be doomed from the start? I plan on using a hard bedding compound (Devcon 10110). Thanks for all the help!

I've got a a-bolt stainless in 300 win with a boss and there isn't any "bedding compound" in the stock. They may have started this later though as my rifle is over 10 years old. Mine shoots just fine with the factory stock at .5 moa.
