I like the 111 long range Hunter but don't know if I'd like the adjustable cheek pad on the stock. Do uk if they could just swap out that stock and put a different one on? I'm really wanting a 25-06 but if to much of a task I would settle for a heavy barrelled .243

Either brand makes very good high powered bolt action rifles,I own both brands.
For me I prefer the Remingtons,I have done a lot more shooting/hunting with Remington 700s...It just comes down to what feels right,try mounting a few rifles,which feels more natural to you.

have you checked out the Marlin XL7 in 25-06?

i have one and it's a great rifle. very accurate, well made and decently priced. great recoil pad, adjustable trigger down to about 3 lbs., pillar bedded stock, and has fluted bolt that is very smooth. MSRP of $391. many times sold for much less. i paid about $365 for mine and it's the camo version which runs a bit higher than the black stocks. i paid about $350 for my black stocked XS7 in 7mm-08.

You can always take the Karsten cheek piece off the stock if you don't like/need it. There are only 2 screws that attach it to the stock.

I like/have both types,but it depends on what your wanting to do with the rifle,and personal choice.
The stock on the Long Range Hunter is a good stock,but you could always buy a Boyds laminate stock for the rifle if you don't care for the synthetic stock.
If you had Savage change the stock,it will cost you a lot more money for the stock than you could buy an aftermarket stock for.

personally, i like the laminate stocks. very good compromise. the look of wood, but with the durability of a synthetic. very good at absorbing recoil better than a synthetic as well.
