GN07, I have not had to bed either rifle that I put a boyds on. Bedding would not help the accuracy as both are great shooters. Barrels are completely free floated as the barrel channel is pretty generous. They do however require some fitting. My '98 action took less then 5 minutes, the '96 action took about 1/2 hour. A dremel is your friend!!!
