Just saw this while looking for other info. Surprised no one answered, unless you got PMs.
Look at Stocky's web site: Stocky's New Rifle Stocks - America's Gunstock Specialist!
Yes, you will have to get a different stock. HS Precision and its proprietary magazine system is higher dollar.
B&C stock with a conversion added is a little cheaper, depending on the B&C stock you pick:
Bell Carlson Medalist Carbelite Tactical Sporter 1022 Stocks
M4 Flush Mount Detachable Magazine Assembly - Remington 700 BDL Short (223 308), Long (30-06 300 Win) and XL (300 RUM 338 Lapua)
These aftermarket mag systems usually hold 5 in rounds, but stick down below the stock since they are (usually) single stack for reliable feeding.
I prefer the detachable magazines for several reasons, so I'm prejudiced. After you figure cost and realize the ascethics/appearance, only you can decide if it's "worth it." But that's how to do it.
