I'm looking to replace the stock on my model 70 classic stainless 300win mag. The factory synthetic stock seems flimsy, not free floated, and recoil pad is junk. The gun is light weight compared to my savage lrh 300. So I'd like to keep it that way for hunting elk in the mountains.

My question is are the hogue pillar bedded stocks any good? Other lighter weight cost effective options?

Thanks

I purchased a youth one for my daughters' 243, and a takeoff one for a 30-06 I have. I bedded both at the recoil lug, and the rifles shoot great.

They are not bad if you like the rubberized texture. If you don't mind spending the money, the Ultra Light Bell & Carlson will be a much nicer stock but also needs to be bedded. I suspect based on the one I installed on a Rem 700 it will also be lighter weight than the Hogue.
