Not trying to derail, but if you want a pretty wood stock and an accurate rifle give the TC Icon a look. Between the 700 BDL and the Tikia I would choose the 700. Tikia's are good out of the box, but none of my 700's were left un-modified. I have shot a few Tikia's and my opinion was neutral on them. I have owned 18 700's. I still have most of them.
