I like my stocks pillar bedded then bedded forward of the recoil lug under the case body and most of mine are synthetic stocks. I've yet to have a gunsmith tell me they wouldn't do it some have said they had better luck not going pass the recoil lug and I've always told them if it didn't work I'd come back and pay you to take it out. Bedding just one part of the total in accuracy.
If I was build a match rifle I may do things different per what's required as to the type of match it's for so it's not a one type fits all.
