Magpul Hunter 700 or No?

So I’ve got this Remington 700 SPS Tactical .308 with 16.5” barrel. Always wanted to drop it into a Magpul Hunter stock and convert it to mag fed, but this Hogue stock is pretty nice.

 

Anyone using a Magpul Hunter stock? Should I make the switch?

I've been wanting to do a Hunter stock on a 700 SPS Varmint 308 and add in the Magpul DBM for it, just so I can finally float the effin barrel! I thought about Hogue and Choate originally, but I decided I would eventually get a Magpul Hunter stock for it.

I have a adl varmint in a Choate that I've thought about putting in a magpul.  I really want that bottom metal but it shoots so good I don't wanna mess with it.

You can always go with an aftermarket DBM that is something other than Magpul, that uses AICS mags.

The magpul would be an upgrade from the hogue but for a little more, you can get a KRG Bravo and have an overall better stock.

Ok.  Gave it a quick look but not sure what makes it that much better when looking at the prices...

Magpul hunter is what it says a hunting stock. Non-adjusatble in the field, not well suited for extended firing session. The one I had the plastic would soften up and flex some after extended firing sessions. When combined with a spigot bipod mount it would flex enough to touch the barrel. I was using a 24 inch m24 profile Douglas barrel (Heavier than Remington varmint contour) so YMMV. The barrel channel was opened up for the barrel and reopened after the touching issue. 

Check here for other experiences https://www.snipershide.com/shooting/threads/magpul-hunter-vs-krg-bravo.6881487/#:~:text=I%20found%20absolutely%20no%20difference,shooting%20and%20PRS%20style%20matches.&text=The%20Bravo%20is%20better%20for,more%20functional%20for%20tactical%20shooting.   

 The KRG also does not require a DBM bottom metal, the magpul comes with one and a lot of people like them so there is that.

Another option is Greyboe. Here is an SPS I did a while back and shot at Harry Jones Memorial Range out 800 with no issues. They have a model similar in price to the magpul. The one pictured is a ridgeback.
