thank you Sputnik. i like how it looks too. i got one in nutmeg from Boyd's for my Savage M93r17. for the price of the Boyd's stocks, the are fantastic stocks.

at some time in the near future, i plan on rebarreling my 7mm-08 in a 24-26" heavy stainless stell barrel in the same caliber. the laminated stock should be much easier to reprofile for the larger barrel than the synthetic stock.

whatever rifle you decide on, check out Boyd's Gun Stocks, as they make stocks for lots of different rifles and shotguns.

Post a pic of it. I have the same exact rifle caliber and all and I would like to see is the stock is worth the $$

A friend of mine wants a good 243 bolt gun for deer, he's says he doesn't need 'all the bells and whistles' and won't take a shot over 150 yrds, he just wants quality.

He also prefers a wood stock but will settle for synthetic and wants to keep it at around $400 with a decent scope, suggestions?

Thanks.
If he wantsreliability and wants wood I would suggest a 30-30 you can find it for the same price range. And its known for killing the most deer.

the Model 7 is just a shorter version of the M700 action. i think he made a good choice and will serve him fine for many years.
