    I have a Savage 10 predator hunter max. The rifle has the new accu-stock, and it shoots amazing. I can no longer stand the cheap stock that is on the rifle. Everyone points me in the direction of shooter supply, hs precision, and on and on. I am looking for a Stock or chassis that can fit my rifle. This rifle has the removable mag and the bolt removal on the trigger guard. There has to be someone making a target/tactical for this rifle. Please help or build me one... lol Thanks again guys

    I'm in the same boat as you. I am thinking of a Macmillan stock.

    Stockade stocks. Kevin Rayhill is the owner and specializes in stocks for Savage/Stevens rifles. They are affordable and really nice. Cousin has one with the target action in it. I would highly recommend him.

    I've heard good things about those Stockade stocks. Just never seen/handled one in person.

    LOOOONG wait. I have mine ordered and it's about a 4 month wait. I got a prairie dog with his bottom metal to take AI Mags for $509 That is really reasonable. Guy is super cool to talk to over the phone.

    Well in a few months I'll be able to tell you first hand how they are.

    I can vouch for the Stockades, I've done probably 10-12 builds using them. Never a problem, customers have been very happy with them. They shoot well and are very stiff in the forend.

    I guess if I had to find a complaint it would only be with the one I bought already finished and he painted the entire stock - meaning I had to remove the paint (quite thick) out of the receiver region before bedding.

    Overall, I like them a lot.

    I had a stockade prairie dog stock and it was really nice. The quality was really good, it was real stiff, but I just didn't like how it felt like a hard shell that was hollow inside(it's not hollow). I switched to a McMillan and absolutely love it. It cost more but to me it feels so much better, like it's solid throughout.

    Like I said though the stockade was really a great stock, I'm thinking about one for a sporter weight savage.

    Heres my first Stockade stock and I love it. This one was painted by them but you can get one for under $200 and finish it yourself which is what I'm going to do with the one I have on order. Also they are very left hand friendly.

    This is a long action 7WSM built from a $180 Stevens 200. It's bedded into a Stockade Pdog/ Tactical. The bottom metal uses an AI 300 Win Magazine and feeds and functions flawlessly.

    That's sweet. How's she shoot? Is that his bottom metal?

    Thanks! Yes, the bottom metal came from Kevin. I think it's a great option for the center feed savages. So far it shoots great.
