  • Over the years I have read that for maximum accuracy, a rifle barrel should be free-floated. However all the rifles I have owned

    Over the years I have read that for maximum accuracy, a rifle barrel should be free-floated. However all the rifles I have owned,(currently a Remington M700, aRuger M77 and a Remington M873)have had forearm end pressure on the barrels. Why don't manufacturers free-float their barrels?

    it's a more costly process to free float and you said it, maximum accuracy . most guns already shoot beter than those shooting them ,

      Some do come "factory" free floated, the last browning I bought(A-Bolt) and I hear the savage does the same.
