Re: hogue stocks

I have no experience with the pillar bed one but I assumed that the full bed one is stiffer and thus more conducive to accuracy. My rifle sure shoots great in the full bed Hogue.

Re: hogue stocks

Go with a B&C, they are great stocks especially for the money, just stay away from their carbelite models.

Re: hogue stocks

I actually just purchased the ghillie green Hogue, full bedded block. It looks great and feels amazing. I have yet to slap it on my Rem 700 7mag. Everyone says that they are flexible but with aluminum running all the way through it, it feels stiff as a board as me....I don't think I will regret getting it....

Some of them don't have the aluminum bed block... Which is why some people don't like them. For example, the Hogue I had on my 10/22 didn't. Some of the Hogues I have messed with on some of the 700 SA rifles have been flexible. I have not tested one on a LA 700, that was ordered aftermarket.

I might have to look into them for my build I'm gathering parts for. If not, I will be using an old used CDL stock I can get for $50 at a local store. I plan on modifying it for my barrel contour to be fully floated, bed the action and recoil lug. And install aluminum pillars in it. I should have about $75-100 total in the stock.

Re: hogue stocks

I had long and a short action Hogues for 700s. They both had the full length block. The only complaint that I had is they are heavy. I have a B and C and a HS Presicion on those rifles now. I really like both of them, I like the HS a little better. Contact Red HawkRifles , they have the best price on B and C stocks and are great to deal with.
