Default stock questions...

well I think I have decided on a laminate tactical thumbhole with a 2.5 or 3 inch forend from richards microfit for the m700 I talked about in the other posts...

Not set on that stock or that company...I like the design..it should be comfortable and steady on bags or bipod...and richards got a good reputation...so that's where I sit as of now...but open to design or maker suggestions....also, like the thumbhole as I broke my wrist and sitting behind a regular stock can be painful for me...

Now...they can oversize inlet for bedding 1/16th of an inch larger...since I will be having it bedded, good idea? Bad? Call my smith that's doing the work??

Also...the gun is a m700 sps varmint...has a dropping floorplate...keep it? Make it a single shot?? Or is that my preference and has no effects other than looks and function?? Accuracy is my biggest theme for this rifle...I can live with a single shot no problem..just was wondering as a lot of target rifles I see were made single shot...likely because 1 round is all they shoot at a time..but wanted to make sure I ts not a bad thing to keep the floor plate and internal magazine...

Thanx guys...choose a color and review this post and I will be ordering...

Last year I bought a Richard's 96% inletted laminated stock for a Sako AIII. It was a very nice stock, but far from 96% inletted. It wasn't a problem as it is much easier to remove wood then to try and add it on. I pillar bedded and glass bedded my action, but check with your 'smith as to how he would like the stock as he will be charging for any extra work.
