What are the benefits/disadvantage of both? I've seen varying opinions on both.
Tip pressure sometimes helps the first 2 or 3 shots to be consistant, but when the barrel and action
start to warm up the group may start to open up. Floating normally helps this but may also loosen the group up.
5 shots will normally let you know what the rifle needs.
If it will shoot 5 shots in a tight group don't mess with it, if it shoots 3 in a great group Don't mess
with it. if it won't group, then pillar bed and float it.
Once it is bedded and floated it may change the ammo it likes.
