I have a Remington 700 sps chambered in 300blackout. The current stock is the Hogue rubberized that came with the rifle. Any recommendations on a mid level, budget conscious upgrade for it? Does anyone make a precision stock or chassis for this model of the 700 yet? I love shooting this rifle, but I'd like to begin the upgrades for it here, with a better stock/chassis setup. Any info is appreciated. Thanks!

I'd like to keep the cost below the $700 range, if possible.

For $700.00? H-S Precision Pro-Series M24 Vertical Grip Tactical Fully Adjustable Stock. Runs about $659.00 at StockyStocks.com.
OR
AICS Stock

Both are great Chasis Systems, fully Adjustable and will make the Rifle Accurate. Try Both as one will fit better than the other depending on your body structure, face structure etc..
Good Luck

Bell & Carlson Medalist is a GOOD option also..

$685 and stick any AR stock with buffer tube on the back. Later you can get an adjustable stock for it if you want. AICS magazines.

where the heck can you find a $700 AICS?!?!!

I got one for $600 a couple years ago and sold it for $700 after shooting with it for a couple months.
They are around, but they sell FAST when they come up for sale that cheap.
The cheap ones will usually be 1.0's or 1.5's.

Why you would want to upgrade the stock on a 300 meter gun is going to be expensive and will not get you any performance enhancements.

Stick with the original and maybe bed recoil lug area and aluminum sleeve the stock bolt holes.

Better yet, punch it out (ream chamber) to 7.62x39mm Lapua (see kendog4570) and get a true 500 meter gun with .308 bullet handloads.

I would shoot it subsonic and leave the stock alone as well.I have a 300 Whisper with a straight 1.230 barrel in a H-S Precision stock and the stock does nothing for the gun.

Bell and Carlson. They have a full aluminum skeleton. I went to plant three months ago and watched them make a stock. Weatherby and Remington and CZ have abandoned HS and are using B&C for their tactical rifles OEM.

Used AICS would be the easiest.

There are others that are great choices but many of them will require bedding.

If you look at everything that needs to be a done to a regular stock like adding bottom metal, bedding, doing something about comb height, magazines... the AICS price starts looking mighty fine.

Thanks everybody. Lots of good info and insight, as usual. I'll be exploring my options. I know this rifle, chambered in 300blackout is no more than a 300m rifle. I just wanted to accurize it some and thought the stock would be a good place to start. It'll eventually be a hog rifle.

+1....

just looked at the B&C A5 tactical adjustable
realized I need to get bottom metal
and spare mags

$440-480 stock
$200-300 for bottom metal
$70-80 per mag

AICS = $880 ish with one mag

now if only I can get behind one to know for sure I want one...:facepalm:

On my primary R700 I run an AICS 2.0 which I absolutely love… I agree with the others on keeping your eye on the used market.

B&C Tactical Medalist Style 4 Series 1000 stock which run around $250 very much interests me as a budget option… Seems like a good recommended stock, but I don’t know much about them but they seem popular.

If you plan on getting a similar or higher end stock and bottom metal with all the goodies it adds up quick… it’s pretty hard not to look at chassis system even though they will probably exceed your budget if you are really after all the fancy features.

If I get another chassis down the road I would go with another AI product and get the AX AICS but pictures of the XLR Carbon chassis are also calling my name.

I think rifle stocks are a lot more forgiving of less-than-perfect fit than shotgun stocks, for instance. A good shooter can more easily compensate for a broader range of dimensions, making the adjustable combs, etc, less important.

Finding a comfortable weight can be as important, for some shooters, as getting the ideal fit.

I find that these stocks fit me well enough.

http://www.stockysstocks.com/servlet/the-614/*NEW%21*-Bobby-Hart-Long/Detail

They need pillars and glass bedding to offer top flight performance, but a lot of experts argue that a pro bedding job is still the best way to achieve the best accuracy, and that the full length bedding blocks are a compromise, albeit a small compromise in some cases. You can adjust the LOP pretty easily, or have the smith who beds your action do it for you. Comb height can be tweaked with add-ons.

The LRT plus the cost of a pro bedding job comes in around $400, maybe, and while it won't be what everybody wants, it can yield outstanding accuracy, moderate weight, and enough change to buy some top-shelf reloading dies and a few thousand primers!

An ill-fitting stock is a significant disadvantage.
I would never be without an adjustable comb on my comp rifles as I want my natural position when I place my face on the gun to be perfect, every time.
If you have to "float" your head to see through the scope, you do NOT have a good cheekweld.

There are a lot of chassis out there. I tend to like them better then conventional stocks. The best shooting most comfortable stock for me is the aics 1.5. I like them mcrees, I have a m70 7wsm on one. I also see a lot to like in the rock solid stock. Manners also makes a mini chassis for all stocks they offer. I'll be or ding a t5 with it really soon for one of my actions.
