    The jobs I have done have made no difference.
    My 308 AI stock was pre bedded when I got it for a short recoil lug.. I put my action in and cranked it down.. if anything should have bent, it was THAT action.. shot bug holes.. realised it was wrong a month later and fixed it... shot no different.

    Never done it. But then I havent owned a shitload of rifles. The 308 will shoot 1/4 to 1/2 with the load it likes(pity that pill is good for f all) and the ones I use less than a 1'' so why bother?
    I could see it improving some budget or older rifles maybe? but I havent tryed
    "Hunting and fishing" fucking over licenced firearms owners since ages ago.
