I have a 700 BDL, short action (22-250) , sporter barrel. I have a couple
questions.

What is the 5R that is referred to in the description of the stock?

If I get a sporter inlet, can it be enlarged later for a light varmint barrel?

I don't care for the BDL and prefer a single shot feed. Can I get the ADL version and use the BDL internals for holding in a SS adapter?

Will I need an ADL solid bottom plate?

TD, the BDL can be quickly converted to a single shot
by opening the hatch, dropping in a Hi-Score SS adapter.
This can be done w/any stock.

The term 5R refers to the type of rifling, and that
barreled action came in an HS Stock that has a
Palm Swell pistol grip, and 2 forward sling studs.

Thanks Larry. I have used he Hi Score SS adapters and the worked well. I was looking for a clean bottom to the stock. I also saw the price of the ADL trigger guards and I think the BDL hardware will do just fine.

As for hogging out the HS Precision stock, the answer is yes!

I use an electric die-grinder with a ball stone to open the barrel channel up to whatever is needed. In my last such, I opened the stock of a Rem 700 in 223 varmint to accept a heavy (.750" at the muzzle) stainless bbl with about 3-4mm gap around the bbl for free-float and cooling.

I skim bedded the aluminum bedding block and the tang - leaving the middle of the action free-floated. Turns out to be "the ticket" for a tack driver varmint gun.
