Re: Bell and Carlson stocks

I ordered a B&C stock for my M700 BDL in .280 Remington. The stock I ordered is the medalist (pillar bedded) mountain rife stock that is the same as used on the Factory Remington titanium rifle (not listed in the catalogue, but call them)

It is a lightweight, about 20 oz, comparable to any lightweight stock out there. I had to enlarge the barrel channel to fit the sporter contour but it is a great stock.
I love mine.

Re: Bell and Carlson stocks

I have three HS Precision stocks and a McMillan A5 (WHICH I LOVE!)

If I could afford it, they would all be A5's, but the HS Precision's are extremely well made also, and have some very nice CUSTOM features.

Look, I understand about the money issue, by what you can afford and enjoy, especialy if you can order it with some custom features that will make it a much better fit for YOU!!!
Since we are talking about custom stocks, get it with a LOP that will match yours when you will use it most. Average is 13 1/2" to 13 3/4". If you will use it in the prone position only, get it 1" longer. Thats average for shooting prone, if you will use it in hunting only, maybe get it 1" shorter, so it will fit when you have all that hunting clothes on. Or get it to fit, without, maybe you might just use it a bit more than you think.

The e-gay idea has merit, if you don't get too robust in the bidding, and if there is time. Set limits, and stick to them.

That A-5 that was mentioned in the above post is a S-T-E-E-L, to get all that is offered would cost close to $900 if you are not a dealer.

Good Luck with your decision, and don't forget to show us a pic after its all put together. Rifle pics are as good as PB, and much safer! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Re: Bell and Carlson stocks

Thanks for all the input! I think that I will save and get an HS or McMillan. I am pretty picky about my guns, and I know I will not be happy unless I get one of the top quality stocks.

Re: Bell and Carlson stocks

You can buy one of their Ti stocks made for Remington, they weigh quite a bit less than their normal line.

I believe they go less than 26 ounces.
