Hi all
Anyone replaced their synthetic stock and gained better accuracy?

Yes. You can also bed and stabilise the Hogue stock.
Boyds are a popular replacement but i believe you can also buy a timber Howas stock as well.

Another option is the Hogue full length bedding block which is far better than the pillar bedded stock.

Hey Mitch,
Which Bell and Carlson did you go to?
I was looking at this one:

B&C Target/Competition. Not cheap.

Thanks Mitch. Good choice.
The B&C range for the howa 1500, seems to be rock solid.

For the op, haven't replaced the hogue stock yet, but off a bipod, it's definitely inconsistent.

The GRS Synthetic stocks are about $200 cheaper than the B&C. I'd go for one tomorrow if they did them in a left hand grip....
Still trying to save for the Hybrid or similar in a left hand grip inlet for Howa.... then it's on like Donkey Kong!!!

I put an XLR chassis on my 1500.
Well worth the price.

Hey, brought the same stock second hand in as new condition, haven't shot it yet but if feels good to handle. Got it for the same price as a GRS berserk so am stoked with it.

as people have said you can accurize the Hogue stock by bedding it and stabilize it, I know you can buy a walnut howa stock although I've heard they're expensive for what they are, I've used Boyds of which are excellent for the price of them, I've also used B+C's they're awesome, and have an aluminium bedding block, I've heard good things about Hatchers Stocks if you don't mind finishing them yourself, I'm not a huge fan of chassis but that's another option if you do like them.

I have the Bell & Carlson Target /Competition stock and quite like it. I prefer it over the Varmint version as the foreend isn't so chunky and is still nice to hold.
I just bought the Howa barrelled action so can't compare it against the Hogue but from what I have heard they do flex a fair bit with a bipod attached.
If this style/look is what you like maybe check out the new KRG Bravo. It has the chassis forend and the butt is shaped liked the B&C with adjustable cheekpiece. It does feel alot cheaper and plasticky/hollow though compared to mine
