    Default What new stock should I get?

    I have a Remington 700 LSS with a laminate stock. It is a very pretty gun just a little heavy and I was thinking about getting a different stock. It is chambered in 300 Ultra Mag. What are some good choices of stocks? And one last question is how do you determine the length of pull? I am a large guy and I had a extra inch put on the laminated stock and it feels pretty good to me. I just want to get it right if I am going to buy a new stock. Any and all help is appreciated.
    Thanks

    You have an idea on how much you are looking to spend? There is lots of stock options out there.

    Call Mark Bansners at Hightech Stocks. Expensive and worth it.

    Default stock

    I don't want to spend a lot of money, only because I don't have alot. I was looking at a bell & carlson with the aluminum block in it but not sure, it is a little expensive. I guess it comes down to you get what you pay for. I might even be hoping somebody might have a used to part with or even a old synthetic factory stock would be lighter than what I have.

    You can find used synthetic stocks on ebay especially if you don't have a detachable mag. Also check www.stockystocks.com They sell Bell and Carlson and have light weight stocks for your remington for about $240. I just got one in black with grey spider web. From what I found when looking for my Rem 700 if you spend less than that you are going to be buying a 2 1/2 pound stock. Maybe that is OK with you. Take yours off and weigh it.

    I'd just go to ebay and pick up a factory Remington XCR stock ( I think they weigh 26 oz) and bed it. There will be a big difference in weight.

    Default Another question?

    How good is glass bedding? I am unfamiliar with this stuff just heard of it. What types of bedding are their and how well does it work? Is it as good as a aluminum bed or is it good but not as good? Just trying to figure out what I want to do? Thanks for all the info and advice I appreciate it.
    Thanks
