Agreed with the others that the Choate tactical stock is a well-kept secret. With their cheaply available cheek-rest risers, and a monopod that is less than $20 (used to be, anyway) you can get a pretty salty rifle stock for under (or right at) $200 if you shop around.
"I'm something new entirely, with my own set of rules."
I have two Remington 700's. One is a .308 SPS Tactical and the other is what I call my labor of love......30-06 . The 30-06 has a brand new Rock Creek 28" barrel with 1:11.25 twist 5R rifling and the chamber was reamed using a PT&G Serangeti reamer which has as 1.5 degree lead angle as opposed to the typical 3 degree lead angle that most 30-06 chambers have. They are both tack drivers. Both of these rifles are planted in the Choate tactical stock and all I can say is that both of these stock.....no bedding at all, can shoot sun .5 moa. The quality of these stocks with the full aluminum v block is the best thing since sliced bread. In my opinion, take it with a grain of salt, you are wasting your time and money bedding your rifle to this stock. For the money, the Choate Tactical stock is the best kept secret. The rifle pictured is the 30-06 and the 5 shot group was done this past Friday at 100 yrds in sunny 60 degree weather.
