Best budget lr stock??

I am having my gunsmith build me a longrange mountain rig on a howa 1500 action / vanguard action. What is my best option for a stock that will not kill me in the steep mountains of idaho? All opinons welcome.

    Manners Weatherby Vanguard / Howa 1500 MCS T3 (Monte Carlo / Beavertail)

    Manners Weatherby Vanguard / Howa 1500 MCS T (Monte Carlo Style)

    Bell & Carlson Medalist You'll need the Vangaurd model

    Bell & Carlson Weatherby Mark V & Vanguard / Howa 1500 Medalist Varmint / Tactical Heavy Barrel Channel Stocks 6650 Series

    All I can find. You could go straight to Manners and order one of their special models with a high carbon fiber percentage. That would be really light also.

    I do not think that greybull does not have the inletting for the vanguard/ howa action. Or do they?

    I am also thinking of the Boyd's thumb hole stock.
