Just curious, has anyone tried stockys long range composite stock for a long range rig? As of now my 280 AI has an hs precision sporter style stock, and I would like to transition to a heavier vertical grip stock. I would love to upgrade to a manners or McMillan, but due to budget a 900 dollar stock is out of the question at the moment. One of the instructors at the nearby long range training school showed me a rifle with the stocky lrc, and told me he has built extremely accurate rifles with it. They guarantee their custom rifles to shoot a half minute at 1000 yards. Says it’s the best bang for the buck out there. Does anyone have experience with this particular stock? I must admit it was a comfortable stock.

Who did you talk to? James?

I bought a couple of these to use as test chassis for various barreled actions built on Rem. M700s. Given the weight, I though they were basically fine. The only objection I have is the stupid, cheap recoil pad, it's ridiculous. I did skim bed one of the blocks though, it was a tad shaky but that's to be expected for generic cylindrical v-block inletting. For $188.00 it's a pretty fair deal. I suggest bedding all of them.

I was primarily dealing with Mark. He showed me several stocks. From your experience with the stock did you get good accuracy after bedding them? My 280AI shoots sub moa at 1000 as it sits. I don’t want to sacrifice any accuracy. Stockys offers an upgrade to a limb saver pad for 25 bucks extra.

Take the upgrade!

It's difficult to make any kind of statement because 'sub-MOA' means different things to different people. All of my rifles shoot sub-1/2" with some just a bit better.;)

Basic rifle accuracy is dependent upon all of the features of accuracy--the quality of the parts, the quality of the assembly of the barrel to the action, the quality of the chamber, the trigger and how well you handle it, the crown, nearly everything which goes into a fine accurate rifle can make or break that accuracy.

However--switching stocks to a bedding block then having it bedded stress-free should never cause it to be less accurate unless there is something wrong with the design of the new stock. These stocks are fairly foolproof once they're bedded properly. You shouldn't lose anything as far as accuracy is concerned.

You don't have to spend 900 on a manners. I got mine for around 600. Its the EH1. Im sure you know this but sub moa at 1000 isn't bad at all. Sounds like you are a good shot too. With your gun shooting that well as it sits, I would wait and save up to get a manners or mcmillan. If you are like me and you want one now you may still want one even after you get a new stock. waiting and saving would result in getting one sooner than if you went ahead with a cheaper one. with that being said, I have 2 bolt action rifles. I just got the second one from the gunsmith last week. I put a boyds on it to save money since I have a manners EH1 on my first bolt action. Finally, I have learned that a fine rifle can be had with a good bedding job on a budget friendly stock.

I agree. When I say sub moa I mean that this rifle is capable of .5 to .75 minute groups at 1000 yards. I didn’t think swapping to a properly bedded stock would hurt anything. My rifle is built on a Remington 700 action with a #4 Bartlein barrel. It’s definitely a shooter when I do my part

Thanks for the advice. I’ll check into the EH1. As far as my shooting, even a blind hog finds a nut on occasion.

I have tried two of their lrc stocks and have been happy with the accuracy. I wouldn’t want to pack them in the hills, but great otherwise. Top is a 308 and Bottom is 7-08ai

You're welcome. Either way it will be fun to put something new on your gun. I must add that my two guns serve different purposes so I wasn't worried about saving a little bit of weight on my second one.

I hear ya on the shooting. Are you in Alabama or Georgia? I used to live about an hour away from that shooting range.

I’m in Georgia. About an hour away as well

These stocks are pretty dang good for the price. I definitely agree @sable tireur about the recoil pad though, get the limbsaver.
