Replacing Accuguard stock?

I have a Weatherby Accuguard in 240 wby. I am thinking about getting a wood stock from Boyds. Will the 240 wby be considered a long action?

Yes, the 240 Weatherby is a long action. The case is essentially a belted .30-06 case (slightly different). Why are you going to a different stock? Aesthetics?

I am just a fan of wood stocks. I am going to get one made that looks like a deluxe stock.

Cool. I have a .204 Ruger on a Howa 1500 action (basically the same action as the Vanguard) with a black/pepper laminate stock. Very cool look. Boyds stocks work well and their inletting for the Howa/Vanguard action is great.

They are nice solid stocks! I have 2 on my Vanguards and one on my Ruger.
