H.S. Precision or B&C Medalist

My wife wants to get me a new stock for Birthday/Christmas and I found a H.S Percision fairly cheap on line for around $320, but it will take a few weeks or up to a month to get here, I was wondering will the B&C Medalist stock be just as good? It will be going on a Win Model 70 300 WSM Classic. Midway has the Medalist in stock and I could get it probably in a week, for about $80 less.

As everyone knows times are tough right now and I don't want to be selfish and get a higher priced stock just for the name, if the Medalist will be jus as good.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Dave

Re: H.S. Precision or B&C Medalist

Why dont you look at a Maners or Joe russo stock?

I have a B&C stock on my savage and I could not be more pleased with it. It was real cheep.

I have a HS precsion on another gun and it is great as well.

If I had to pick between the two I would go with the HS precsion beacuse of the palm swell it fits my hand real good and looks better IMO.

Hope my opnion help

Re: H.S. Precision or B&C Medalist

I don't know much about the B&C but I'm a big fan of the H-S Precision products. ;) The full-length aluminum bedding block runs all the way out past the front swivel stud, and extends through the pistol grip, making sure that you get maximum strength.

The B&C stocks I've seen look to be very serviceable, tho'

Re: H.S. Precision or B&C Medalist

How far out does the aluminum block go on the Medalist? Also is there a palm swell on the HS Precision sporter stocks or just the varmint or tactical? I want this rifle to be fairly light and tough, it will be my long range mountain rifle, hopefully under 10lbs. Any more info would be great.

Also I have handled both stocks I believe, doesn't Remington use both brands on their upper end rifles, I know the Sendero uses a HS precision and I believe their Titanium Mountain rifle uses the B&C doesn't it?

The HS Precision sporter stocks weigh in right around 2 1/4 pounds. The only stock they make for that rifle is the PSS092.

HS on my Winchester - don't care for the B&C after a few cracked & one had a flexi-forearm - Customer service depends on how they feel that day.

Re: H.S. Precision or B&C Medalist

Sounds like I will be getting a H.S. Precision then, I know they will have no problems with the stock, I have read the reviews on the B&C and it is always mixed reviews. I don't want to take a chance on the stock cracking or not fitting right. Thanks guys for the input!!!
