Just picked up a used one of these is 7mm WSM for 320.00; didnt need it, seemed like a good price. Factory stock has to go for sure. Is there anything in particular I need to know before buying a stock? Is it just any post 64 SA stock? (obviously know I have to find bottom metal)

Post 64 SA stock should work. The barrel channel is what will vary on the stocks. Take a good look down your barrel and see what it looks like. The 70 7mm wsm that I had was in really bad shape mid length of the bore. Visibly bad with the naked eye.

Super shadow, black shadow, etc had different options on the mag-- mine is blind mag. I did some woodworking and put it on a diet, as the Boyd's was heavier than the plastic original-- when done I had the Boyd's down to right around the same weight as the oem.

I bought a Boyd's laminate stock for mine-- had to trim down the internal mag box to fit in the wood stock so it now only holds 2 in the mag (2+1) rather than the 3 it held with the Tupperware stock (3+1)

I just picked up one of those in Stainless steel in 270WSM
The #7775's are what come on the Winchester Extreme Weather guns in WSM
I have 3 of those stocks on my Model 70's and will be ordering 1 more for the new gun

It shoots about 3/4 moa with 168 berger, can't get the accuracy I want with other bullets -- still trying to tweak the loads to see if I can get them under moa
Right now I'm "meh" on it

That's a slick idea. did you bed that stock?
I have a sherman in a boyd's that's bedded, and it'll shoot .3's for me on a good day
