I haven't used a non-wood stock yet, so I can't help there, but I have had both a 25-06 and multiple 6.5 x 55s. I still have all of my 6.5 x 55s.

" want one that is allready fully bedded with a alluminum bedding block."

 

The Bell & Carlson stocks are good, but ain't it better to bed YOUR action into one rather than a factory bedding to a sample action?

 

Just a simple question from someone who beds his own, but I know that the pillar bedding already installed in new stocks is pretty damned close to perfect. So it would be easy to adjust to perfect.

fritz gives good advice... start with something good (bell and carlson) and make it better (bed it yourself)

i agree with fritz but i have not tried my hand at glass bedding or free floating a barrel. would hate to scew up a perfectly good stock. would anyone be willing to glass bed for me. i will probably by a cheapo stock and practice but right now unable to manipulate fingers to good due to bad arthuritis.

Is the issue stock too good to sporterize? If not you have your cheapo practice stock. Richard's microfit had bargain seconds (last time I checked) at really low prices. I got one a while back and it was better than expected - a real bargain. Bedding isn't too difficult. IIRC Steve Wagner's page has a method outlined.

 

Get yourself a cheap stock, a heavy-duty NSAID (and some Prilosec to go with it) and get busy. With patience you'll do a great job (and without it you learn a lot and probably still wind-up with something pretty good).
