Re: A1-3, A3, A5 stock for 300 Win Mag
I would also go with the A3 if you are trying to stay in the 9-11lb range. I run an A3 with a 24" varmint contour barrel and a Viper PST and I am at 12.7 lbs without ammo, bipod and suppressor.
The adjustable cheek piece is most likely going to be a must but to save weight I would go with a kydex cheek rest like the Karsten. The internal ones look better but add more weight. I used a stock bag at first but didn't like it.
Depending on your barrel contour, you could always go with a Gamescout. It has a thinner forearm but an A3 style back end.
