I have a Wincherster 70 in 7mm Rem mag that I bought in 2012 with the factory synthetic stock and sporter barrel. It is the plain jane model and not the Bell and Carlson Extreme weather version. I am contemplating putting a better stock on the rifle depending on what can be gained vs cost. It doesn't shoot bad, but the stock can be made to touch the barrel of a bipod fairly easily. I have never bedded an action, but if I can be coached into being comfortable with it, that is certainly a possibility. I also have an older ruger M77 in .243 in a wood stock that would benefit from a glass bedding job.
 
What would you recommend in a reasonable price range? B&C Medalist, HS Precsion Sporter? I've read pros/cons of the B&C stuff but the jury seems to be about 50/50. Any other suggestions, maybe a laminate? Maybe modify the factory stock. Just kicking around an idea to improve the rifle.
 
Thanks

My Rem 700 in 300WM loves its new B&C Medalist.  It went from a 1 1/4" at 100yd gun to 1/2".  Love it.

That sounds great. I'm really leaning that way, but wanted more opinions from the experienced people here.

The McRee chassis was mentioned in another topic. Looks interesting.

I have the same B&C medalist stock on my 700 in .308 and would recommend it

Custom builder Mark Bansner just went into a joint venture with a company named Trop Manufacturing out of Penn and he sold the rights to them to make his High Tech stocks. IMO, those stocks were as close to getting a McMillan stock for just under $300. They feature a two piece aluminum block system with a unique block up front for the recoil lug and a pillar for the rear tang. Mark Bansner was/is one of the best custom builders and decided to make his rifles more affordable by incorporating modern technologies to make his stocks and using the Ed Brown CRF 704 action which Trop bought the manufacturing rights for also. The new rifles offer a MOA accuracy guarantee and weigh in at under 7 lbs. The cost, for what you'll get, almost seems to good to be true. A custom made CRF type action, stock and a match grade lapped barrel in a wide variety of calibers with an aluminum BDL style bottom metal and a Timney trigger all for $1500.
