IIRC, one has a removable magazine floorplate and the other does not.

Adl has a blind magazine well.
BDl has some fancier features such as an exotic wood cap at the end of the stock, jewelled bolt, sometimes nicer finish etc.

to add to cracked butt: bdl's feature either a detachable mag or a hinged floorplate.
i don't think there is a person on this earth that could tell you exactly what adl and bdl stand for, and why that was the derivative. just know that bdl's are more expensive than adl's, and most of the difference is cosmetic (assuming identical calibers, and the adl's caliber line-up is awful thin these days).

Q: What is the difference between the Model 700 ADL and the BDL?
A: The ADL-BDL designations were originally acronyms for A Grade Deluxe and B Grade Deluxe. The deluxe term was once tacked on to the end of the model designation: Model 700 ADL Deluxe and Model 700 BDL Custom Deluxe.
Both models use similar barreled actions, which feature the strongest actions made, exceptionally crisp triggers and 3.0 millisecond lock times. However, the Model 700 BDL is fit with a hinged floor plate or detachable magazine (DM) that allows the shooter to unload ammunition through the bottom of the rifle by opening the floor plate or removing the magazine. The Model 700 ADL uses a blind magazine and can only be unloaded through the top by working the bolt open and closed.
Both models are offered in variety of styles, calibers and options to meet individual needs, preferences, and hunting conditions. The Model 700 ADL is available with wood or synthetic stocks and carbon-steel barreled actions. Also available is a Model 700 ADL Synthetic Youth. The Model 700 BDL is available with American Walnut, synthetic or laminated-hardwood stocks, carbon or stainless-steel barreled actions, and mirror-image left-hand versions in the Model 700 BDL and Model 700 LSS models.
