hogue stocks

anyone use a Hogue stock? im wanting to replace my black synthetic stock on my 270 remington 700 with maybe the ghillie green Hogue stock. but ive also considered one from stockys stocks-the heritage classic sporter stock. just trying to get some ideas and feedback from anyone who has replaced their stock. i definitely want something that looks good and rugged and is durable and has a good hands feel. i really like the ghillie green Hogue

Re: hogue stocks

If you like it, go for it. Most opt for something stiffer to avoid barrel contact by the stock when on bags or a bipod. Hogues tend to flex pretty good.

Re: hogue stocks

I have a black Hogue stock with the aluminum beading block in it on my custom Rem. 700 Shilen barreled 264 Win Mag and I really like it. The rubber gives you a grip when wet and cold and it feels warmer than wood or the composite stocks in the cold. Rifle shoots bug holes in it so it must be a good stock.

Ditto

I have them on two rifles. Not really long range equipment, but in the woods of the south and east coast where I'm at they are the best for the money as far as I've seen.If you are replacing a Rem SPS stock you will be happy.

Re: hogue stocks

I have a Hogue on my Model 70 in 270 Weatherby and it is great. It the pillar bedded version. I have thought about getting one with the full aluminum block bedding to put on my 7mm STW,
