I plan on shooting more F class matches this summer. I will use an RPR or one of my Remington 700's. I need to decide on a stock for it, preferably below $300. Currently I have a Archangel 700AA or whatever the model is on it, and it is not flimsy at all. Completely free floated and bulky and comfortable. The stock that came with the rifle was a flimsy piece of junk. Anyone have any suggestions?

Remington 700 SPS Varmint .308

Any stock should do as long as it makes weight. The Archangel is pretty heavy. Might want to throw your rifle on a scale with glass, bi-pod, empty mag and see how it comes out. 18lbs I believe is the limit.

If the rifle shoots well as is, shoot it as is. Go and have a good time. Take your 300 and set it aside. Add to it when you can. At end of season see what you've got and maybe something will come along. I grabbed a NIB McMillan A3/5 from another board for 600 shipped because it wasn't painted. It's perfect for me.

Good luck and happy shooting.

I have used both a Manners T4A and a custom stock on my Ftr. Now it wears a Choate Tac stock which has a full length aluminum bedding block (into the forend for bipod support). With extra spacers for length, and the tall cheek rest, it fits me perfectly as do the other two I use. I am sticking with the Choate because I found it fits my anatomy well, and it shoots just as well as the much more expensive stocks I have shot before. Not bad for $200.
