There is something I have been wondering for a while and never hear anyone talk about it. I really trust people on this site and I know you'll have the answer
Knowing that for accuracy the barrel should be free floated and not interfered with during a shot due to harmonics, how is it that some of the most accurate old riffles have full stocks that go all the way to the end of the barrel? Like the Springfield 1903 and the Enfield 303 or the manlicher stocks.
Even riffles with a barrel band front swivel for a strap seam to violate this accuracy rule. What gives.
