Custom stock recommendations for older Vanguard

I am interested in hearing some custom stock recommendations for an older Weatherby Vanguard I have. It currently hadls the original wood stock on it. I think I'm looking for a synthetic stock but open to suggestions. Also, can accuracy be improved by upgrading to a good stock? What are the accuracy advantages of beddding blocks in stocks? And can you get a stock that is pillar bedded that you can just bolt on? Pretty new to all of this. Thanks for advice.

Bell and Carlson makes a couple of nice stocks for the Vanguard (same as a Howa 1500). Check out Stocky's stocks. Manners would be another source of quality stocks.

Re: Custom stock recommendations for older Vanguard

I've used the B&C Medalist with excellent results. Generally it's easy to skim bed them and get great results with a Vanguard.

As noted above, you can also use the "stock finder" on the upper left hand corner at Stockys to search for stocks.

For a new alternative check out this one:
