    How do you feel a long range hunting rifle stock should be set up?

    Currently looking at 2 flush cups on the left side (right shooter) and one sling stud up front for a bipod. Anything else useful?

    Adjustable pull recoil pad worth the money?

    Pillars installed from the stock maker vs using pillars supplied with bottom metal?

    If the stock doesn't fit you it is.
    It can come in handy for different shooting positions too.

    Pillars are pillars.
    If they are installed correctly it doesn't matter where they come from.

    Adjustable cheek piece if it’s an option. You never know if you decide to change scope etc and the right height is very important
    Flush cups are nice, so are dual sling studs

    If it is going to be very heavy, or have a wide fore end, I would go pic rail instead of swivel stud. A wide forend on a single point swivel will loosen that swivel prettt quick. I just changed to a rail and feels much more solid.
