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.
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'
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?
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!!!
