    IMO the boyds is kind of a downgrade from the magpul. It definitely would need bedded if you went that route.

    If you want a nice wood stock/chassis check out the woox line.

    The Featherlite isn’t pillared or bedded so you’ll have to deal with that yourself. The bedding kit isn’t a ton of money (under $100) but the pillaring jig is about $200 for a decent one. Gunsmiths charge about $200 to pillar and and bed for you. Sadly the Boyd’s wood furniture doesn’t have the aluminum block like Magpul does.

    I have put a R700 into a Boyds thumbhole varmint stock. Forend was stiff, recoil pad was nice, it didn’t need bedding (though I did anyways because I could and had the supplies to pillar and skim bed), and the ergos were good. For a bipod host and bench gun, the stock was great.

    I have a R700 in their traditional style stock, i never bedded mine and it shoots lights out. Maybe it was just the stock that i received but it fit like a glove, very solid and ridgid, for the price i don’t think you can beat them. I’m looking at one of their At One stocks for my Savage 110. Woox also makes a really nice stock if you are willing to put up a bit more money.

    My brother got a couple and had to bed both of them, but once that was done they shot well.
