I know the Hogues aren't the greatest of stocks but they're cheap and do the job. In a year or so though I may invest in a Bell & Carlson Medallist for my .270. I don't think it'll perform better with the stock but it will look a bit more presentable.

What do you like about the Hogue over the Medallist?
The aluminium chassis on the Hogue looks more sophisticated and lighter. I have the Max-Guard (rubber finish) on my B&C but the Hogue rubber coating looks more durable.
The only thing I can’t comment on is how they compare with controlling felt recoil, I know that the B&C stock improved it considerably over the old standard Howa plastic stock, some of that could be down to it weighing a bit more though.
