I once had a old Savage 110 bedded. The OK rifle was then a tack driver. It seemed to work for me. I needed to try new loads for the change.

All the bedding does it make the vibrations decrease when fired. Your fitting the action to the stock. Its kinda like asking if I buy a suit off the rack, will it fit me any better if I have it taylored to me? Most likely not, but sometimes a rifle is bedded strong right out of the box. But doubtful.

Whether glass-bedding will help your rifle shoot better or not depends on how it is now bedded. The Ruger M77' s are a little more difficult to glass bed, because the front guard screw not only pulls the action down when tightened, but also back more firmly agains the recoil recess in the stock. How bad is your rifle shooting now? Have you tried tighening the screws with the present bedding? I' d loosen all guard screws, then tighten the front screw up very firmly first, then the rest of them a little less tight and see if grouping improves before trying to glass bed it.

Glass bedding helps stop the stock from heating up,,(causing the wood to expand).It also stops moisture from entering the stock,which would result in the same problem,expansion of the stock.If the stock is too close to the barrel,and either of these problems occur,,then the stock will expand ,touching the barrel,resulting in the rifle not holding point of impact.As for tightening of the barrel bolt,,i have a Mod 70(pre 64),that would only shoot well if the bolt was loose.So try tightening AND loosening the bolt(screw) and give it a try both ways and see what happens.

Hope it' s ok to ask a follow-up question, but I was wondering if glass bedding can help a gun with a laminated or synthetic stock, or does it just mainly help guns with wood stocks?

Any gun can be glass bedded. I have had good luck getting aluminum pillars installed. Anything you can do to keep that barreled action from moving after pulling that trigger will help with your accuracy.
