Default New stock for a Rem. 700 3006???

Any ideas on a good quality synthetic stock for a remington 700 for around $200? I'm looking for answers from folks who have purchased aftermarket stocks. Let's hear the good and the bad. Thanks you!

Mitch

I think the Bell and Carlson stocks are in this price range. I have had a few, and they are good products for the price. Don't expect a perfect drop-in fit, but a little glass bedding will make them work very well. The 700 action is fairly easy to glass bed.

Look for specials on mcmillan bro website. I got one wheel of a deal for my 700BDL with DBM. Its a rare combo and maybe why I got a good deal. I got it for $300 shipped. Also got a sako75 swirley for little over 4. I am extremely pleased with both.

Thanks for the replies! I should have also added that it is for an ADL. I see a lot more options for BDL's but I really have no desire to convert it. I don't find the ADL a big deal to unload and no drop plate is one less thing to go wrong while hunting.

I have the LA hardware if you decide you want to make it a BDL. PM me if interested. Its new.

Houge overmolded stocks are far too heavy in my opinion. I'd look for either a synthetic takeoff in the classifieds or maybe a HS Precision dropin.

After reading your post, I started researching the HS Precision and I'm liking the reviews. I'll keep looking into this brand.
Thanks!

Duckbutter, if I change my mind on the BDL, I'll get with you. Thanks!

I have had the HS before. It worked well. I am not sure if it was the heavy palm swell or what but I didn't care much. I loved the idea of a full bedding block. But found out, you still have to glass bed it to get good bedding. There is no free lunch no matter if its steel or plastic or fiberglass.

Well, I decided today that I'm going to glass bed and stiffen up my factory stock for now. Thanks for the input guys.
