I think laminated is a good value proposition.
Have a look at stockysstocks.com.
Also, sometimes used or take-off's are a good value on ebay or gunbroker. There's a classified's forum on this site.
You'll probably want to bed the action in whatever stock you get. But, if that's not you bag, then you might want to pay extra for something with a good aluminum bedding block. Ideally, you would bed those also. But, many times it's not as critical.
Laminated stocks are the best buy for a ridged stock that won't break the bank.
They also dampen the harmonics of the rifle helping accuracy.
A good composite stock will run over $300.00 but at stockeys you can get a realy nice Laminate
stock for less than $200.00.
Factory are the cheapest option but they are wood subject to warping if exposed to high humidity
Anything beats the tupperware stocks.
