YES it would still be a good idea to skim bed it and your recoil lug will get bed as well. just my 2. but i bedded mine

baldhunter,
Alot of folks on here say yes, it will/should benefit from being skim bedded. I have owned several rifles, Sendero's included, and never had them bedded and they have shot great. Supposedly, it improves on an already good thing.
I don't know of a gunsmith close by me that does this. The only smith I would even consider is "NesikaChad" on here. I saw some post of some of his bedding work and the guy's work looks flawless. JohnnyK.

Shoot it first and see how it shoots. Chris

I think that's what I'm going to do.The action just feels so sloppy in the stock until the screw are installed and tight.Sitting on top of the aluminum block,as long as the screws are tight,one would think that should do it.

Yes, shoot it first. Tight screws will not necessarily make it shoot well. Tighten the action screws to about 55 inch lbs. Then alternately loosen one screw with your finger under barrel right at foreend. If movement is felt, action is not level. Then tighten that screw, and do the same with the second screw. Slight movement in either direction signals need for bedding. Glass may not be needed at the recoil lug, if it is tight against the block. Skim bed the action and about 1 1/2" beyond the recoil lug, into the barrel channel.

Gene, I'm a bit confussed here. I was always under the impression that that action screws should always be tight to they stop. Are you saying that adjusting the screws to make a tight fit with the stock is what you are recomendeing. H-S is supose to a have a good system with the Aluiminum bedded. I had to file on the trigger area to get my Rem 700 SPS to fit and it still seems to be sloppy. I went back to the Factory stock. I plan on getting it bedded this winter by a gunsmith.
