    I picked a Remington 700 in 30-06 a few weeks ago. According to the date code it was manufactured around 2004. I only gave $275 for it. So it was hard to pass up. So far I have upgraded the scope in it. And I am already looking to upgrade it again. lol. Coming up next is a new stock and a timney trigger. Do any of you guys have any recommendations on a new stock? The second pic is the new scope. I'll more than likely swap it out in a few weeks for alittle higher powered scope. And again any recommendations on a preferred scope?

    Going tactical or wood? I like the boyds laminate thumb hole wooden stocks, though they do add a bit of weight.

    I'm going synthetic. I plan on using it as a hunter. And a little fun target shooting. I'm not fond of beating a wood stock up in the woods. I've been looking at the hogue over mold stocks.

    Congratulations you have a fine weapon.As far as the stocks there are several top lines out there. your pocket pocketbook will control what you get lol. synthetic is best in a all weather hunting firearm.
