    Default replacement stock?

    Does anyone have any recommendations on a high quality replacement stock for a Remington 375. I know that there is alot out there and don't know anything about any of them. What are the pros and cons of an aluminum bedding block? Has anyone heard anything about these? http://www.rifle-accuracy.com/smartstock.htm One of the others that I was looking as is these guys http://www.hsprecision.com/new_stocks.htm I would greatly appreciate some help and any insight into this.

    I've had a Brown Precision on my .300 for almost 30yrs and have had no problems at all. It is light though. Look here:

    Last time I talked to HS Precision, he said they no longer sell just stocks. All their stocks go on their rifles.

    I would think bedding blocks to be a great idea and interesting in hearing others experiences.

    You might take a look at this site. Had a long talk with this guy a couple months ago. Wood stocks with an aluminum chassis. He also claims this design helps reduce felt recoil.

    I like bedding blocks, but I would sure want to consider this outfits stocks. Note that you can get a bedding block stock from them.

    Most of the stock I own were put on by McMillan, I have one from MPI on a .375H&H that has been an excellent stock for the past eight years. I have a few rifles with wood stocks with bedding blocks and they have proven to me to work vary well. No seasonal change at all.

    I don't remember ever drinking purple Kool-Aid. Should I start?

    KoolAid drinkers are hip on things like "MPI" and "bedding blocks".

    Never have seen/read one,that shoots anything other than their mouth and it is glaringly obvious at a glance.......................

    Default stocks

    Ditto! What's all that venom about? But, after reading past posts smells of a complex of some form for sure erupting with parrot-like encyclopedic slang slathering and spewing out. No kool aid mustache or BS about the experience I've had with the synthetic, kevlar stocks that have the integral alum skeleton with bedding blocks.

    Anyway, I've used HS Precision stocks for several rifles. Very good, beefy stock. If you are any kind of a do-it-yourselfer shouldn't be much of a problem fitting barrel and action to the stock. Yes, the bedding block with internal skeleton works well. That system stiffens the stock and provides a rigid connection between action and stock.

    I really like High Tech Specialities stocks. McNillan makes a fine stock, but the wait time is considerable and the cost is higher that other comparable stocks. Bell and Carlson makes decent stocks too. Also, I have found nothing wrong with MPI stocks, it's just that High Tech is easier to work with as far as bedding goes...in my opinion.

    I agree with the choices posted so far and would add one more to the mix, Rimrock Stocks. http://www.rimrockstocks.com/

    When I went to the site I found out that they aren't producing any stocks for sell at the moment. They are using all they make on their own rifles. You may have better luck if you call. Remington's are very common and they may have one or two available. I've been around a couple of these stocks when they were produced in Washington (on Vashon Island) and really like them. Good Luck.

    Default Stock choices.......

    My Mod. 70 .338 sits in a Mark Bansners "High Tech" stock. I had them do it as I had a Ted Blackburn drop magazine put on it. They cost some bucks. The pre-64 .375 I just gave my son-in-law has a McMillian stock on it. Rim Rock is the old Pacific Research stock with some improvements. I think Dakota Arms used MPI stocks on some of their rifles. Brown Precision has been around a long time and makes good stocks. All of these are very good synthetic stocks. It all comes down to what features, shape and weight you want and how much you can spend. If I was going with iron sights only on a big rifle it would be McMillian. Scoped and light weight rifles get the Bansners.

    All of the stocks mentioned are fantastic. Some are just easier to work with/lower cost/shorter wait time than others. I tend to lean twords Mark Banser's Hi-Tech stocks. Decent price, easy to work with and short wait time. But they do need a pad and a paint job. Let me know if you need any help with any of this, I'll do what I can.
