Which Savage stock?

Wanting to get input from people who have used the Bell and Carlson Medalist Tactical for a Savage. I am contemplating that stock for a 308 project versus an HS Precision Varmint stock. From the pictures I have seen, the B&C looks huge so I am concerned that it might be too bulky and awkward. Not going to use it for hunting, just a lot of prone field shooting. I have two Duramaxx stocks and really enjoy them too, even from prone position.

Thank you.

    I'd go with a joe russo A5-l or a stockade.

    I dig my B&C, I thought the wrist area was going to be to bulky but when I got on it and shot it put my hand in a very comfortable, repeatable position. The action and barrel dropped perfectly into it. The wide flat forend is super nice of the bags or bipod but I would have prefered a rounded but the price is very, very attractive.
    The finish seems to be rugged, I'm fairly abusive and it has handled it. The HS Precision looks good but I have no experience there.

    I have a rem 700 vs in 308 which has an hs stock on it. It has been a great stock but when shooting prone I like my metalists tactical stocks better. I have one on a 300wm and a 243win. I get a better cheek weld with the metalists and they just feel more comfortable from the prone position.

    Stupid question:

    Could the forend be milled down a bit to make it more low-profile?

    It looks like a big 'ol brick on the end of that stock. That's the only thing keeping me from buying one.

    Thanks.
