Floating a barrel is about whether or not the rifle likes it. It guarantees nothing either way. The only way to find it if your rifle likes it is to try it. Putting a pressure point back in isn't difficult.
"...and rear 10% of barrel..." It's out to under the chamber area. You must seal the inside of the barrel channel either way.
"...horizontal and vertical stringing when it heated up..." That indicates inconsistent bedding. Probably caused by the barrel touching in some places. Likely the action isn't straight or sitting correctly in the stock.
