    You are probably in the wrong thread, but...
    I purchased an MDT LSS for mine, and while it is ergonomically great etc, the accuracy was no better than the standard stock. This is not a critisism of MDT, but an accolade for the horrible green lump of plastic that Howa supplied. The original is pillar bedded etc. and works fine. The other downside is the horrible mag release, which is greatly improved on the MDT.

    However - if the Oryx had been available, I would have gone there. I have just bought an Oryx for my Rem 700, and it is fine. Being one piece it's really rigid and fits the gun well. Only downside is that the "bag rider" is far too short and the cheek piece adjustment is by Allen key. That will change. I also like the TSP-X chassis. It's well worth a look.

    I think that the EXCL lite chassis is a bit low in the cheek and that you will want to upgrade the rear end ( looks like it takes an AR15 carbine tube). My opinion/guess only.
