Bart 95% or the rifles I have ever had I free floated if they did not arrive that way. The two mentioned above that were full length bedded did maintain zero from the only two positions I ever shoot them from. I will also add they were both synthetic stocks. Those being rest under the front foreend and my hand on the front fore end. I dont use the sling to shoot while hunting. I find me a small tree and pull the stock firm against it. I 100% agree with you that free floating is the way to go in most circumstances, but these particular two crappy barrels did not like it too well.
