Re: Choate stocks

I have one on my savage build.

Stock does what it is supposed to do, but weighs alot.

The rifle shoots sub 1/4 MOA

    I went with the straight Tactical on my long action Savage. They are heavy. The V block does it's job very well.

    If you put a heavy barrel on, be prepared to use a sling. You won't want to lug it around for very long.

    My 338 edge savage rifle wares one, all my future builds will ware one..... It shoots in the 0.2-0.3moa range and I know it could do better with a better driver. I love the feel of them, the bedding block and the fact I could run it over without hurting it......... really the only thing they need is less black and more camo. Great stock at a price that makes me smile. Dollar for dollar... there is no competition. IMO

    I have the ultimate sniper stock on my Rem 7STW and love it. As for as the feal I had mine dipped in skullworks camo with a clear rubber coating. It looks and feals great and shoots awesome. I would be glad to show pictures but can't figure out how.

    And here I was all set on a B&C medalist for my daughter's 7mm-08, but the Choate tactical looks good to, and for a similar price
