This has been done for decades. Years ago, when stocks' fore ends were stiffer than more recent times, it was a good idea when the rifle was hand held as its fore end rested atop something on a bench. The pressure humans put on the rifle from shot to shot was reasonably consistant.

In the field, when all sorts of shooting positions were used and sometimes with a sling, the fore end tended to bend more irregular. Pressure on the barrel wasn't consistant in both amount and direction. Zeros would shift. Depending on the stock material and atmospheric conditions, sometimes the forend would bend a bit changing the pressure on the barrel.
