Bedding a stock.....Need some help

I am working on my .243 win...I'm going to go back to it for some deer hunting while I'm still young and dumb enough to carry a 9.5+ pound rifle around the woods. I am planning on sending it to our gun smith to change the stock (to synthetic) and hopefully some trigger work while I have some $$....but the # 1 thing on my agenda is which would be more accurate....Pillar bedding or Glass bedding the stock??? I'm planning on doing some serious work on it this spring and then jumping right on to the targets for a good long summer of shooting...some reloading and what not..but any info in the Bedding department would be greatly apperciated.
thanks

I have had 2 rifles worked up. Pillar bedding was the way to go with both. A 308win with a customized stock and a 270wsm with a custom stock. Both are one hole shooters.

Bedding can be anyhting from marine fiberglass to liquid steel. Many bedding products to choose from. It provides a perfect fit between action and stock and according to thickness, can float barrel for example, increasing accuracy.

He's a pic of what a typical bedded acion would look like.
