I have a rem adl 270 with a synthetic stock. I get pretty good accuracy from it if I do my part 8) . I've noticed a pressure point in the end of the stock. do y'all think I should float and bed or leave well enough alone. Does this pressure point have some advantage for me and if not why does rem mold them in?

Unless you are going to do an action bedding also I would not do it, what happens on the ADL SYN. stock is when you try to relieve the forward pressure point the stock tends to bow upward from the forward stock bolt, so unless you bed or attach a fixture just forward the recoil lug createing a shelf you will find the stock now has full foreend tip pressure,possibly destroying accuracy.

But I do recommend bedding of the action and floating the barrel for maximum accuracy. (TRIGGER JOB!)

I've left the pressure point alone on all of my Rem's and never had one that didn't shoot sub-MOA on a regular basis. "IF" I had troubles getting 1" or less groups at 100yds, I might consider bedding and freefloating. Until that happens I will just leave well enough alone!!

How is your 270 shooting now?

Hey Y'all, thanks for your replies. Crayfish my 270 shoots pretty good, sub moa to a little on the plus side depending on what the shooter is doing :wink: . I have noticed that my cold shots are alot more on call than "warm" barrell shots. I guess that is why I was wondering if floatind and bedding would help. It is a hunting rifle and I don't shoot comp so I guess I should be concerned with the first shot which seems fine.

If it's wandering around after the 1st shot, you MAY need to float and bed it. Another thing could be that the pressure point isn't even on both sides of the barrel forcing it to one side. This will cause stringing as the barrel warms up. You can take the stock off and check for wear on the bottom of your barrel and see if the contact looks even. Also, make sure there is no stock / barrel contact anywhere else BUT at the pressure point. Maybe the rest of it isn't totally floated.

The ADL's don't have an ultralight barrel so they shouldn't wander around on you too much from a cold to warm barrel. By BDL didn't wander at all. Check these things out and if everthing looks OK floating and bedding may be the best solution.
