Ok folks, long time reader of the forum but first post.
I have a Remington 700 CDL Left Handed in 300 RUM. Aside from a trigger job and a muzzle brake
, it's all stock. Sitting atop is a Leupold VX3L 4-14X40 with the varmint reticle.
Using the Remington loads with the 180 gr Speer Sirocco, I'm consistently hitting 2.5 to 3" groups at 300yds off sandbags but it starts getting a little inconsistent beyond the 300 mark. My goal is consistent sub MOA out to 600 and I feel its time for some work.
First up is blueprinting the action. No brainer there especially when I can see the locking lugs on the bolt wearing differently.
Second up is dumping the Leupold for something with adjustable turrets such as the Vortex Viper HS 4-16x50 LR. Simple so far right???
Third up is a composite stock and here's the question: I have been eyeballing the HS precision, Manners, and Greybull stocks but have never shot behind one. I'm after a hunting style stock that provides a solid platform and one I can attach a bi-pod to. I don't need anything like an A5 style tactical stock as this is my hunting rig and that's what it will remain. I'm not looking to upgrade the barrel at this time as I'd like to keep it as light as possible. All I need is a 1st cold bore shot with the possibility of a quick follow up.
So for those of you fortunate enough to have the knowledge; can you help point me to the best stock for the application even if it's not one of the three listed above?
Thanks for your assistance, TA
