Bell and Carlson Medalist UltraLite stock?

I am in the process of building a Custom 280 on a Winchester action, and a #4 Brux barrel. Originally, I was going with a laminated, well made stock, but have thought about opting for a synthetic due to weight savings.
I have looked at the BC Medalist Ultralite, with aluminum, full length block. I am told this is the same stock that Winchester uses on there Extreme rifle. Does anyone have any experience with it?
It seems to be well designed, and weighs less then 2 pounds! Any thoughts?

    Just put one on a 264 but have not shot it yet. It went 29 oz. and fit was fine.

    How liberal is the barrel channel? I couldnt get any " good info" from Stockys as the the exact dimensions. My barrel is a # 4 contour, Brux, which is a little bigger then a standard Mag contour. How is the fit in the chamber area? I guess if I have to open it up somewhat, then so be it! My gunsmith says he can open it with his end mill, then I'll have to refinish it. I am going to get the sand colored one. So far, I have heard good things. I was going to use a laminated stock made by S&K, which is a awesome stock, and excellently crafted, I'm just thinking of the weight at this point. I found a CNC machined bottom metal for about $100.00. ( very nice ).

    The barrel channel can definitely be opened to accept a #4. I highly doubt it would drop right in.
