Bart, Gale was a legendary rifle builder. The man built many world record holding rifles. He might not be right about everything, but I know pressure points make some rifles shoot better. I cant tell you why, but I know it does. A tupperware stock and a $1200 stock seem to follow a different set of rules. Some stocks have so much flex in them it really does not matter how well you bed them you are not going to realize the results of a good bedding job. Now that I really think it through, both rifles I full length bedded with great results were rifles with junk stocks. One of them was Savage's stock with those stupid plastic molded pillars. The other was a Remington mountain rifle with a composite stock that is the softest, most flexible stock I have ever seen in my life. Both liked full length bedding. Why? Don't know, but it worked.
