I'm not certain why factroy guns have bedding points for the barrel as most guns shoot much better with a free floated barrel. It is true that some light barreled rifles shoot better with a pressure point under the barrel but this point needs to be well placed. I have had just a few factroy guns and no customes that shot better with a pressure point.
What happens alot fof times with factroy guns is that when the barrel "whips" at the shot its comes free from the forend and when the barrel settles back down its not in the exact same spot so you end up with pressure being put on the side of the barrel as well as the bottom and that points the barrel in a differant direction , basicaly the barrel needs to take off and lad in the same spot every time to get the best groups , this is easy with free floated barrels but barrels with alot of stress in them will start to "walk" as they heat up and thats from the barrel structure moving on the mollecular level , with guns whos barrels do walk alot after the third shot or so you will find that a stiff pressure point will help and since most factroy guns have forged barrels and they arn't stress relieved this is why i think that the factroy gun benifit more from a pressure bedding point
