    Bell & Carlson A2 or A5 rifle stock

    I am considering replacing my factory varmint remmy 700 stock with one of these. I do most of my shooting either prone or sitting from a rest. I am wondering ergonomically if this will be a huge improvement over the factory stock since I have never held one. Accuracy will surely improve with the upgrade which is now about .70 out of a 22-250 but with that I am looking for a much better feel. Factory stock just doesn't quite fit like the glove I would like.
    Or.. Any other recommendations.
    Thanks

    A Robertson Composites is my first choice over a B&C or McMillan on any given day.

    McMillan makes quality stocks and have the experience to back it. Manners is another quality manufacturer.

    Bell and Carlson is making some interesting stocks which are very reasonably priced.

    Ouch!
    Checked out Manners. Does that come with a barreled action too? No, not quite looking for something that budget heavy. Just want something that will compliment my 700 in both performance and feel. Looked at the McMillan's. Again, a little steep unless I had a completely custom rifle built around it. Anybody got any experience with the B & C A2 tactical?

    JetPig,

    I have used both the B & C stocks, one on a Savage 10FP (the non-adjustable) and the Tactical/Medalist (adjustable cheek and butt) on my Rem. 700. I love the fit of both styles, but the TM is better for the money in my book. A fellow F-Class shooter had me install one on his new 40X, he couldn't be happier. I'll drop you a PM where I order from.
