I would get the rifle/action floated/glass bedded with the existing laminate stock.
I like the synthetic(s) w/aluminum bedding blocks, but there's something about wood and the Remington VLS is a beautiful stock. I have wanted one for years but I don't really want a .308, I have an accurate .243 (Win70 that resides in a HSPrecision stock!) and would rather have a 22-250 with a 1-9 twist rather than the 1-14 Remington offers.
I have a Savage that started out as a 12BVSS but I traded stocks with another member on here who had a Savage VLP. With the original stock the rifle consistently shot sub 1/2" but after the swap the recoil lug didn't fit just right and I noticied the groups moved out to 3/4", or worse, on known accuracy loads.
I took the rifle to Joe Collier / Collier Rifles in Millen, GA and he bedded it for me. From what I can tell he does a lot of work on Remington rifles, but is definately not limited to that brand. Very talented riflesmith with a great personality and calm demeanor. He has a nice shop and produces some very accurate rifles. Anyway, he called me after about a month and told me to "come get this Savage". He had finished it and loaded up some loads, I guess from some load info I sent him, and the rifle had put the first three bullets in the same hole at 100yds (another biased Remington fan see's the light, maybe?)
I highly recommend Joe for anyone interested in rifle accuracy.
A bedding job is usually about a third the cost and just as effective, IMO. JohnnyK.
