There is a very specific torquing procedure if you remove the stock. It is said to have a pretty big impact on accuracy.
I have one pre-accustock synthetic stocked savage. Not much experience shooting it, but that stock is so flimsy and cheap feeling that the accustock is a big improvement in my eyes even if I end up pulling the wedge.

I had just installed a new scope, so I was trying to get it close, hence starting at 100. I honestly thought the scope was moving it was so bad with the bergers.
Then I swapped to the trusty accubond load without touching anything on the rifle. Took 5-6 rounds to get it on the money, then making clover leafs at 200 yards. If the load is all over the paper at 100 I don't see much point taking it any further.

Everyone here seems to be saying to jump the bergers, I was under the impression pretty much everyone jammed this bullet into the lands. Maybe I'll load up a couple with a healthy jump before I abandon them altogether.

That use to be the common school of thought, but guys find they shine with a good jump now.

Jump em!! I found right at .015 was the sweet spot, my groups were progressively larger going away from .015 in both directions.
