When locking the trigger guard I always use thumb pressure to pull the receiver rearward into the stock, so the legs of the receiver are in good contact with the stock.

I usually don't worry about the receiver settling into the stock.
But the 1st shot from a freshly cleaned barrel can be off with some rifles. Mine is consistently about 3 moa low. Some people don't see any difference, it probably has to do with cleaning technique, etc.

At an EIC leg match there aren't any sighters, so be prepared for that.
I would zero the rifle for 200 yards a day or two earlier and just dry-patch the barrel to remove loose fouling and any moisture - no solvent.
If the barrel was thoroughly cleaned before the match, then use several dry patches to remove any residual solvent or oil.

About the ferrule / band contact - use hand grip pressure to flex the barrel/stock - if it moves back into position w/o any sticking or grabing then it will probably be fine.
