I have heard reviews from other people but i want to know some specific people choate,ramline,bell and carlson etc.
I really liked bell and carlsons stuff but then people were saying there guns didnt fit in their stocks and i might have to glass bed my rifle so im at a loss here now ,I cant afford a mcmillan at all, has anyone used a b&C stock specifically with a savage 110

I have only one black stock as I still prefer a beautiful peice of wood on my guns. I bought a Ramline for one of my Rem. 870's ( I bought it with a broken butt, the gun I mean, not mine). The fit and finish is ok, the recoil pad is a little proud, the parting lines are visible (filed them smooth) and a slight imperfection in the grip, only noticeable in the right light. I wanted to build a dedicated deer slug gun and wanted it to be as bullet proof as possible. All and all I am pleased with the stock, but it will not hold a candle to the fit and finish on a McMilen or B&C. Very servicable stock and suits my need well along with a pretty good price.

I have a Bell and Carlson Thumhole on my Model 70 and it fit perfectly with a very small amount of dremelling around the rear tang area. The stock had a rounded rear tang area and my gun was squared. It has held up to some severe weather and abuse and still looks great (not to mention 7STW recoil).
I later glassed the recoil lug area and floated the barrel, but it certainly wasn't necessary. I tend to do that on most of my bolt action rifles.
Another good stock source is Richard's Microfit (http://www.rifle-stocks.com/silhouette.htm) . You will have to complete some finishing, but for the price they are very nice.

How about a laminated wood stock built along the McMillan A2 stock? Brownells doesn't have the picture up anymore, but it was a dead ringer for the McM A2, made by a company named Zero.
