tobnpr, in theory; Yes. In actual practice; maybe, maybe not. With a wood stock that moves due to moisture, temp. etc. floating is very important. With a very stiff kevlar or composite stock most of the time it does not care if it is floated or not. I have a Savage tactical in a McMillan stock that you can not pry a piece of paper under the barrel with a crow bar. It shoots a clover leaf whether its hot, cold, humid, dry, or whatever else. If its real hot the group is a little higher than if its real cold, but that is due to powder and not stock pressure. I intended to glass bed and float the rifle, but it shot so good the way it was I left it well enough alone. I had a CZ with a wood stock that was not floated and it changed Zero every time it set in the safe a few months. So, it just depends on the individual rifle.
