Ask Remington why they put a pressure point in their stock; fore end I assume. I have no idea what their reason was/is. May well have been the same reason they put adjustable pressure points in their original 40X match rifles at their stock's front end at 45 degrees to the barrel but that was a disaster and smart folks backed those adustments out all the way totally free floating the barrels and they shot more accurate.

It doesn't matter how much flex there is in a stock; barrel either for that matter. As long as it's repeatable for every shot, that's all that's important for accuracy. More often than not, that pressure point in the fore end tends to counteract a poor receiver fit to the stock and rifles do sometimes shoot better that way. It's cheaper than epoxy bedding the receiver, but not as good accuracy wise.
