I'm considering upgrading my stock on my Remington 700 SPS.  Any ideas?  Pros?  Cons? 

I'm still in the early stages of research seeing what's out there.

Sure ..why not.  It's a matter of what you're looking for .. Laminated, classic walnut, or synthetic . Lots of choices depending of which direction you go in, and some as easy as unscrewing a couple of screws and swopping the stocks.

Do you want to stay with a synthetic? If so, I'd go Mc Millan all the way.

Synthetic for sure.  I think it would go best with the gun.  I'm considering the McMillan, just hate the wait; I'm pretty impatient.  Are the McMillan's pretty stiff.  What are the pro's and con's of the McMillans.  I'd like to learn more about them before I drop the $400+ on one.

IMO, they are the best. Yes, they are stiff, inletted close to perfect, finished better than anything I've seen and you can bolt them right up if you choose to. Only downside is the wait. Sometimes you can go to their website and find a ready made stock especially for something as common as the 700. Sometimes customers get impatient after ordering and back out and McMillan is already in the process of making the stock, so when they finish it, it goes into inventory for sale through their website. Lots are discounted this way as well. I have several and quite honestly I wouldn't  buy another brand unless McMillan didn't offer an inlet for my application. Sky is the limit on color choices as well.

I personally prefer Bell and Carlson stocks.  Their Medalist series has a full aluminum bedding block and they are extremely well finished and for a 700 should be a simple drop in a screw back together.  I have purchased 3 or 4 and all have been perfect.  One I used to try to float a Wby., but the Wby. did not want to be floated and purchased the proper fit stock for it and it shoots like it is suppose to.  Upgraded it from the basic synthetic stock it came with.  I have never used McMillans, but have seen plenty.  I honestly cannot say they look any better on the outside than the Bell and Carlsons.  Stocky Stocks frequently has Bell and Carlsons in stock to fit the 700 in a variety of stock types and colors and camo.  Priced better than the McMillans.  A competitor to SWFA occasionally has them in stock also.  Some people like to glass bed them, I personally do not feel the need and the manufacturer does not recommend it, I spoke to them on the phone, several times about this and other issues.  One other thing, no matter which stock you buy, find out how much you should torque your receiver screws in when mounting.  For the B and C stocks it is 45 inch pounds.  I had to call and find out,  the information did not come with the stock and I actually called prior to buying.
