I was wondering if anybody had much experience with them. I was looking at the Medalist stock to replace the laminated stock on my Remington 700 LSS 30-06. Are the Carbelite stocks pretty much the same stock except without the aluminum bedding block? If they are & a guy beds the action in one should it not be just about as good as the Medalist? There's about $100 difference between the two & if they are the same stock minus the bedding block I think I could live without it & bed my own action like I have with most of my other bolt action guns. If anybody has any experience please let me know whether it's good or bad. I'm very open to suggestions.
