Boyd's LA stock for 300 Win?

Hello All,

This will also double as my initail "Welcome" post. Howdy to All! Anyway, does anyone know if a Boyd's long action stock is the correct choice for a 300 Win? Not sure if it is a special "magnum" category or what. There is a stock on the Rapid Fire page, but I don't want to purchase and not be able to return if it is the wrong size.

Good to be here. Thanks in advance!

It would depend on the manufacture of the action but in most cases the .300 Win Mag would fit in a standard long action stock.

Do you have a link for the stock and additional info about your action?

Here is the link to the stock... it says TC Venture LA. I have a TC Venture 300WM on order:

Here are the rifle specs... but see no valuable info for my concern:

Maybe I'm missing something?

This advice is regarding Boyds discount/no return stocks. I'm not addressing whether or not the above stock will fit the rifle you have. I've only bought one stock from Boyds but this would be my advice. If you are able to do some inletting/bedding and the price is right, go for it. My stock came with very poor inletting. The front action screw hole was offset quite a bit from top to bottom. I could have fixed it but I had ordered the stock and paid full price for it so I sent it back. They made it right. They made me a new stock. That one had no issues. I'd buy another Boyds but understand that it might take some work or a return.

Was it a Rapid Fire Closeout? They are pretty up front about all sales being final on the closeouts. I wasn't questioning their customer service but I wouldn't expect them to take back a closeout.

I bedded one for a guy a few years ago and yes it took a little work. If your handy and price is right go for it. I'm kind of partial to McMillian my self but it has a price tag to it.

No, I think it was a regularly priced item.

I have never owned a bodys stock but do have to admit they are nice looking stocks. However, there is a facebook group for the TC compass and there are several people that are having issues with their stock not lining up right and either requiring returns to body or sanding and shaping on their end. It might be because the compass is fairly new but it doesnt seem like they have it down right for them. The venture has been out for years so it might not be an issue.

Thanks for all the responses. Yeah... this one is Rapid fire, so I'd expect to not be able to return it. They seem to be very nice, especially for someone on a budget. For just over a hundred dollars, I suspect they would be a major upgrade from most any composite stock. I'm not concerned as much with their workmanship as I am with knowing whether .300 Wins usually use the same size magazines and, thus, loading port as a regular long action. Forgive my ignorance... this is my first .300WM and it's not in my hands yet.
