    As mentioned, Kevin Rayhill owner of Stockade will treat you right he specializes in custom savage stocks and can add the extra weight that you will need in the butstock for cheap, you can get the money saver with extra weight for 270 and finish it yourself and have it dipped or you can get it complete and ready bolt together in a solid color or web for 405. They are just as tough as a manners and still cheaper.

    A 116 weather warrior is the same as any other off the shelf savage LAs, screw spacing is 5 1/6", stckys carries some laminates, the long range sport and long range varmint, Choate also makes a varmint and a tactical stock.

    thanks for the help
    I really like the feel of wood stocks. has any body tried boyds laminates?
    I am looking for several stocks but the 300rum is the one that needs a sturdy stock.
    looking for stocks in these guns to but they don't kick very much.
    savage 93 17hmr just for fun gun
    rem. 700 sps 22-250 predator gun
    savage 116 243 it will be my next build
    some might say I have a gun buying problem (wife) I think if you have room in the safe. its wasted space
