Stock replacement

Hello all,

Been a member here for a bit, mostly read the articles and lurk. I have a Rem. 700 SPS tac. 20" barrel in .308 and I am looking to replace the stock. I like the B&C Tactical Medalist but it looks a little heavy. This is an all purpose rifle. Hunting in the north woods of NH and target shooting. I don't want something too heavy. Budget is up to $500. Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Jay

Will my sps be able to drop right in to the b&c Alaskan? I was looking at that one on stockys and wasn't sure bc the sps wasn't listed. Thanks for the response.

I called Bell and Carlson and spoke with them. The Alaskan will not fit with a bull barrel.

They recommended product #2958. They said it is similar To the Alaskan, but slightly heavier (2.25 lbs). same price.

Bell & Carlson Sendaro / Varmint / Police Medalist Style 1 Remington 700 Short Action Rifle Stocks 2958 BDL & 2949 ADL

Re: Stock replacement

Thanks for the input guys, I appreciate it. I also see the B&C M40 that looks good at about a half pound heavier. Any preference for one or the other (B&C Varmint 2958 vs. the B&C M40) ?

Re: Stock replacement

"What sets this stocks apart from the B&C 2958 is the raised monte carlo cheekrest, set ideally for large, powerful scopes; and the flat/round forend for horizontal stability from a rest." - Stockysstocks


I don't shoot rests/bipods alot and I find the flat forends get a bit odd to handle in field positions. Meaning...gripping the forend I don't get as positive of a grip as I do with the rounded forend of a hunting stock.


If it were my rifle I would lean towards the 2958.


If however you shoot mostly from rests or a bipod then the target/tactical stocks are great. And there's no denying the cool factor that accompanies tactical stocks.
