looking for a .243 varmint wood stock

Hey guys, I've been saving my peet my pennies and looking for about a year for a good quality, heavy barrel .243. There is a good selection out there, the problem is, I can't bring myself to buy a synthetic stock. I know some of them are of a very high quality but I just cant get past the good looks of wood. The Savage low profile varmint is the only one I've found but it has proved very difficult to actually get my hands on one. Does anyone know of any other options?

I would get a Sako 85 SS Varmint, which has a Laminated wood stock, in 243! I have one in 22-250 and it,s amazingly accurate.

Ive been using Remingtons very own VLS stocks. Made indestructible...cheap enough..( $250) and fit the varmint taper of barrels.

Re: looking for a .243 varmint wood stock

I saw the sako varmint, beautiful rifle but out of my price range. I'd like to stick in or around the $1000 range. I saw a few coopers today which I would be proud to own but they were with the sako at around $2000. I'd be happy with the savage, it shares the model 12 action with their professional level target rifles. It seems to be a great value, if only I could find a shop who could get me one in. I'm in Saskatchewan, Canada, if anyone knows of a good shop here....
