    Hello shooters, I have rem.700-.22-250 that I'd like to change the stock on. I want a decent synthetic. How does a B&C Medalist compare to HS Precision Pro in avarmint model? I don't want any injection molded stock. Any other drop in brands that you like? Thanks, Dskiper

    HS is really nice, but I'd probably go with the Bell and Carlson stocks because of price. And don't knock the B&C stocks either they're a really nice stock, I have a tactical style Medalist on my Rem VTR in .308 and I love it. You really can't tell the difference between the HS and the B&C Medalists.

    If you don't want to spend a lot of money, Choate make a decent stock. But... If you can afford it, I'd personally buy the Bell and Carlson.

    Where in NJ are you located, I'm in Sussex County lol.

    Good luck.

    try ACCURATE INOVATIONS, best of both worlds, synthetic strength with the great looks of wood. AND a true "drop in". great people to deal with also.

    I have a B &C var/tac on my savage 22-250 and it is great,theonly problem was the 8 week wait for the stock,but it was worth it..
