Now what???

So yesterday I picked up a Stevens 200 in .308, this will be the base for my long range build. I have scope/rings/bases all in mind but was thinking "what now" on the stock. I don't have the money for a good aftermarket stock yet, but was wanting to build the stock up with bondo to make it resemble a b&c or a mcmillian. Also I'd like to stiffen up the forend and bed the action. Any suggestions???? Thanks for your time.

    Give it a go. I started with a B&C sporter tupperware stock then with bondo, JB Weld, Steel Putty, a hunk of 2x4 and some work I ended up with this.

    I'd recommend bedding a carbon fiber or aluminum arrow shaft in the forearm. I didn't do that as I squared up the forearm quite a bit.

    Beautiful stock, Roy. But you must have added some helium also, to make it so light it floats in the air.

    Thanks guys for the input. And I have seen the "Savage Tactical Rifle Project" it kind of gave me the idea for this rifle. I'll pick up some bondo next time I'm in town and get started I'll also put an arrow shaft in the forearm most likely. Thanks

    Is that a Super Sniper scope???? If so how do you like it?

    Also wondering if the weaver bases for the Savage short action, Accustock would fit the Stevens 200?

    Thanks

    Look at the Burris double dovetail bases with the signature rings.

    Rock solid, pretty inexpensive and you can use the inserts to put 20 MOA into the setup.
