I have a Rem700 short action with tactical contour barrel and Badger maximized .312" recoil lug. I was looking into an HS Precision stock but read that it will not fit this size lug without grinding or milling.
Outside of a custom made stock, what options are out there in the realm of HTG/M40A1 style of stocks? I am a fan of grayboe but not sure if the Terrain has the room for that lug.

    In addition to thickness you need to consider depth and profile.

    For instance I had a lug that would fit thickness wise in a krg but bottomed out before the action and also another lug that had too straight of a taper to sit and contacted the sides of the stock before everything was seated.

    The maximized lug is a monster... you will likely have to get a stock that's inletted for it or send it off to be fit (assuming you don't have a mill).

    I actually just did a test fit of the lug by itself in my old Grayboe Terrain. Surprisingly, the thickness and profile is good. But it is way too tall. It fits perfect in my Grayboe Renegade but that is already dedicated to a differeny bbl. I will either have to get it milled or swap back to a factory rem lug.
