What stock ?

I have a Mod 70 SA with a laminate wood factory stock.( 7 WSM 26" #4 Brux bbl ) I use this rifle for long range shooting off Bags and in the prone position. Thinking the McMillan A-3 Tactical or the HTG ? or a Manners tactical . Manners is a little cheaper than McMillan stocks. Also currently have a factory 2 piece bottom metal . What's the advantage of having a 1 piece bottom metal ? Any suggestions ?

Re: What stock ?

The stock laminate stock is a pretty nice stock to begin with. Unless you just feel the desire to go tacticool my suggestion would simply be to do a good pillar bedding and floating and run with what you have.

If you want to make it a dedicated bench/prone shooting LR rig then the stocks you name above are all excellent. The A3 Hunter is also one worthy of a look.
