I purchased a nice Vanguard LA Deluxe stock a few months ago, I decided to go a different route with my project. The stock is for a long action, standard contour barrel. 270 Win. 300 Win, 30-06, It will fit the new Vanguards and Howa's (you would need to remove wood from the recoil lug area though) The older vanguards had the square lug, the newer receivers have a V shape in front of the lug. Very nice stock, no splits or cracks, a few dents from use. I would like to get $225.00, this is what I paid for it. I will ship free in lower 48.
