Looking to update my .300win and cannot decide on a brand or model. Considering the Magpul for the price, but I am open to others.

Tons of options. The main thing is determining if you want to go chassis or standard stock. There's all kinds of options on chassis out there right now. Manners, McMillan are top for standard stocks, as well as Bell and Carlson, Boyd's, HS Precision.

Sorry, definitely a standard style.

Start with a budget and go from there. Check out stockysstocks.com they have a good selection of "in stock" stocks.

The Magpul Rem 700 stock has a bedding block that the action sits on. So it acts like a chassis system. I just shot one of these in a Rem 700, 308 Win, and the amount of action screw torque was VERY sensitive. The screws were loose, so I tightened them to 65 in lbs. Shots started stringing vertically REALLY bad. So I reduced the torque to 40 in lbs, and groups got back to normal. I'm generally not a fan of chassis type stocks, because most of them need to be bedded to get the true consistency you need.

I am looking to update my 15 year old .300Win 700BDL. New stock, heavier threaded barrel, new scope, new trigger.
The stock is the start. I would not like to spend more that $400.00 on the stock.
I am open to all suggestions though

I suggest you sell it and buy a Rem 700 action for about $300 and go from there. Even if you only get $500 for your BDL, you'll be $200 ahead.

x2. I have both a Magpul and Grayboe stock and would definitely go Grayboe. Mine is the Renegade model which is a McMillan A5 clone. Fiberglass and pillars. Free shipping on gunstox.com is where I got mine

https://www.gunstox.com/grayboe-stox

The Magpul is just ok. Its ugly and plastic. First I've heard about torque finickiness so makes me like them even less.

Grayboe as already stated. It's an offshoot of Mcmillan. It isn't the same stock but they are getting great reviews for the price.

I put a Houge overmolded stock on my Remington 700 300 Win Mag. I have been happy as could be with the combo.

I just bought a Grayboe Renegade through Red Hawk Rifles. With their New Year's sale the price was too good to pass up, and I wanted to see how it compared to the Bell and Carlson's I usually use. I won't be home to try it out for a few months, so I don't have any opinion of it, yet, other than the price and good service from Red Hawk Rifles. I have a few B&Cs on rifles I have built for myself, and have no complaints. Just keep in mind they may require a bit of fitting. No complaints on my McMillans, either, they're just in another price point, but haven't done anything my B&Cs aren't doing for me, either.

Grayboe was founded my one of the mcm brothers and uses the same mold as the a5 as well as the the same fill. Stock doc on the hide says he cant tell any diff when cutting for loggerhead hardware and the mcm butt spacers aline right up. The inletting for dbm is spot on too
