Hi all- I have a Savage 116FPX3, that's a great shooter, but has pretty sharp recoil due to the light-weight stock it comes with.

Anyone have a reccomendation for a heavier replacement stock? Anyone glass bedded one of these in a replacement stock? What if any difference did that make for accuracy?

I'm mostly concerned with range accuracy as I use this rifle to test handloads.

Thanks!

well if you want heavy and are primarily concerned with accuracy testing look into a Choate "Ultimate" stock. They're quite hefty and have compartments where lead can be added, plus they feature a full length aluminum reinforcement and the action sits in aluminum v shaped blocks

a very very accurate stock for the money

Just make sure you buy the correct stock for your magazine layout

I do not know to much about the 116 but I have an old model 110c in 30-06 that had the original hard rubber pad. I replaced that with a limbsaver and installed a muzzle break, it now feels like I am shooting a 243. You might want to go that route. But as stated above the choate stock is another option and I really like that stock.
