Did the same thing (pillar bed); it is an easy job and works well. In my opinion, full action bedding is impractical, even impossible; the action is so narrow that there is really nothing to support it on except where the screws are, even the slightest upward pressure on the bolt will cause it to stick. Don't worry if you get it a little thick, JB Weld is easy to work after it has set up.
Not pretty, but functional. Once the rifle and trigger guard on on, nobody sees.
