Houge And Bell/carlson Stock

Has Anyone Had Any Exprience With The Houge And B & C Pillar Bedded Stocks With The Aluminum Skeleton Running Through It. I Noticed After I Put My Bipod On The Other Day That The Slightest Twist With My Trigger Hand Caused The Factory Forearm To Twist And It Comes In Contact With The Barrel On My Model 70 . I Am Partial To The Houge, I Really Like The Rubber Overmold. Thanks

    Mongo-
    Okay, I check out your other posts to see if you were new to long range, young and poor, or just stirring up some conversation; I see you’ve purchased a good scope and have commented on some hand loads, so I will assume you’re a hunting fanatic looking to reach out a little further (let me know if I’m wrong, it won’t hurt my feelings since you didn’t give me much information to work with).

    You’ve purchased a good scope, a Monarch gold 2.5-10 and you’ve realized that a flimsy factory stock is now holding you back – been there, but don’t settle for a Ram Line or a B&C; there are a lot better stocks out there for just a few more hard earned dollars.

    I would fist look at a used H.S Precision sock; they are good solid stocks and you might be able to find one used on the internet for a little more than you’d pay for the Ram Line.

    Next I’d look at the laminates. They can be a little heaver than the synthetics, but they are stiff and solid. If you’re a handy guy and don’t mind getting your hand dirty, you can order a stock from either Boyd’s or Richards Micro fit. If you want a very nice finished stock, contact Joel Russo here on this site.

    Next up would be the McMillan’s and Manners…

    It’s worth spending a little more and getting a good fitting solid stock. Here’s some links.

    Thanks For The Info, I Will Look Into The Stocks You Mentioned, Although I Am Having Trouble Getting On The Web Sites, My Work Comp Keeps "blue Screening" Me,and I Dont Have A Comp At Home.i Have Used Houge And B&c Stocks On Some Of My Guns In The Past But Have Never Really Tried To Stretch My Guns Out To See What They "or Me" Can Do. Here In Alabama "long Range" Is Usually Anything Over 100 Yards, But We Have A Brand New Powerline R.o.w. On Our Hunting Club And I Would Like To Feel Comfortable In The 6-700 Yard Range With My .270. The R.o.w. Is Around 1000 Yards Flat With Hills At Both Ends.

    I have replaced 7 of my stocks with laminate A I's and have been
    very impressed. So much so that I built my 416 Buff on one and
    shooting of a lead sled it shot a .031 3 shot group at 100yrds
    with a 400gr bullet.

    Specweldtom is a dealer for Accurate Innovations and can answer
    any questions about this fine stock or you can go on line and see
    what they look like.
