Sorry Gene the bolt face does not "Float" It would be impossible to head space accuratly
if it did.It can be moved or replaced but must be locked down before head spacing.
If you want a 200yard rifle only then almost any rifle will work. But if you are into LRH
every bit of accuracy you can get is important.
The reason that most custom rifles are much more accurate is that most smiths blue print
the action for there accuracy requirements.
It is true that you don't have to blue print .But if you don't you will regret it.
