Stock for Remington model 700

I am looking to replace my factory stock on my Remington Model 700 SPS varmit .308 caliber. I want a synthetic black or OD green stock. Any suggestions on brand and model?

What style? i.e. what type shooting? Bench? Prone? Backpacking?

McMillan ($ and wait) makes multiple styles, Manners ($ and less wait) makes multiple styles, or Bell & Carlson (less $ and no wait). I chose Manners MCS-T for my build.

The Choate ultimate sniper is 4.5 pounds before Lead is put in the handle.

The HIGH TECH SPECIALTIES are very light ~ 20 ounces

Most other stocks are in between in weight.

J Allen Enterprises makes a nice stock for the R700.

The Accuracy international is nice too.

They are OK. They were one of the first of the aluminum chasis stocks,but haven't done anything noteworthy lately (except hire questionable spokespeople...).

I have about 400 bucks to spend and I am trying to find a good stock in that price range.

I bought a Bell & Carlson Medalist A3 for my SPS and it really helped in the accuracy department. I ordered the olive/ black web from Stocky's Stocks on a Fri. and it arrived the following Tues. It cost me $234 delivered. It is every bit as good as the HS Precision, if not better, and is more than $100 less. A2 stocks are the same price, but there is a 2-3 week wait as they don't have them in stock now. Take the money you save and buy ammo. I think the sale they have going on runs through Dec. 31. I can tell you I am very pleased with my stock. Dropped right in no problem.
