By all means should you go with the full length bedding block.
Niel, how the heck are ya?
If you go with the hogue, go with the full beddeding block just because hogue can flex and you need the support with it.. Just don't go cheap and try to not glass bed it in the process. I have tried several times to go check with HS with full bedding block, and would get changing POI sometimes. But aftering glass bedding, all is ok. And have to go with the rest of the crowd. If going with mcmillian just pillerbed and then glassbed. Alot will say its overkill, but you know its bedded as best as it can be.
