H-S Precision stock - new barrel

I have a Rem 700 in a H-S Precision Sporter stock. Can I re-barrel to something larger than factory contour? Right now, it does not look like there is much space?

    Yes !

    Measure your barrel at the shank (Dia. and length of the shank) The shank is the straight part at the back of the barrel, then measure the outside Diameter at the muzzle.

    Armed with these dimensions look at different barrel contours and you can go up arround .050
    in dia. this will normally be one or two sizes larger and most stocks will take that much opening
    up.

    The factory barrel is somewhere around a # 4 (Lilja) contour and I have re barreled with #5s
    and some times #6 contour without opening the stock to much.
