Anybody use a laminated wood stock on a tactical build? I want to do a tactical rifle but hold down the cost, this is a rifle I plan to use a few times a year. Most of my cost will be in a new bolt and blue printing. It already has a Kreiger barrel, and I plan on a Super Sniper scope. I live in the southwest so humidity is not a problem. I was thinking of a camo finish with a flat urethane top coat to seal the stock.

I have a 700 VLS in .243 with a laminated stock. Awesome rifle. It's bedded, and I painted the stock camo. I think you would like that stock, it's heavier than all the "tactical tupperware" stocks all the SPS guys have and with the heavy barrel it is a heavy rifle but I don't do a lot of walking when I hunt deer and coyotes in N.C. so it's not a problem. If the stock is sealed good it will last forever and the laminated stocks don't have problems with warping due to water and temp. I would look on line for a VLS take-off stock. You won't be disappointed.
