Help on a stock buy

Would appreciate some help, want to up great a REM stock. Need comment’s of this stock users !!!

Have a Remington 700 SPS in 308 std barrel new that has a plastic stock in it. Do not like the fell nor the looks of the stock and want to change it. Do not want to spend mucho on it and have looked at Bell & Carlson´s Medalist (2961) and their Alaskan II (2462) Have also looked at Hogues full length 7075 Aluminum bedded stocks.
The B&C cost $ 240 and the Hogue $ 190

Would like to hear from users of them stocks and any helpful ideas.

Thanks, Wille

Re: Help on a stock buy

I can tell you I like my Houge stock, its on a custom ruger mkII in 257wby. Feels good in the hand, surprized at how well the rubber holds up in the field also. It's kind of heavy compared to the HS precision stock I have for the same rifle but its a 12pound gun anyway.
