Ended up getting the Choate Ultimate Varmint. Liked the forend much better than the slanted of the Sniper.

My 300WM long range rifle sets in one of those only because I could fill the cavities up with shot.It weighs about 17lbs,but has almost zero recoil.
That's about the only thing I like about that stock,but it works.
I have the Choate Tactical stock on 3 of my other rifles,and it is a much better stock for the money. It's lighter,and more ergonomical for the shooter,plus it carries easy in the field.
Trying to carry the one you have,even with a sling is a chore!

I don't do too much walking when hunting. I love the ergos of this stock actually. Different strokes I suppose.

you can never go wrong with a good mcmillan stock! They make some of the worlds best equipment and rifles. Majority of stocks for the r700 will be good in just really comes down to what you want the stock to do. I personally would find a stock with the aluminum bedding block. This will allow your rifle to fully bed itself over a period of time while shooting it.

my understanding of the stocks with an aluminum bedding system only need to have the action torqued and they are good to go. please explain how they fully bed themselves over a period of shooting them.
