These are the stocks i'm interested in.. i'm looking to get something that isn't cheap and is good quality. i don't know if you guys have heard of the 1st one.. and i noticed the big change in price.. i'm not a gun guy and trying to do some research but figured you guys can break **** down for me and simplify a lot of this info.

if you guys know of a better stock or whatever post it would love to look at it.

Welcome from NJ!
For not a gun guy, you seem to want to very “tachtacool”. I personally don’t see much of a reason to use any of these stocks for hunting or target shooting but that’s your choice. I have an AR and I have hunting guns. Each has a purpose and design.

If i wanted to be "tachtacool" as you put i wouldn't be coming here for advice on what is the better thing for hunting and target shooting.. i don't see the need to having multiple guns when i can have one.. and there is nothing wrong with having something appealing to someone..

There is absolutely nothing wrong with having something appealing to you. There also is no reason to only have one gun but that’s another discussion.

You asked about which of those stocks would be best for hunting and target shooting. For that, any of those will be just as good as the factory stock. Depending on the weight and comfort, the factory stock may be better. The military snipers use the factory stock and do some very good shooting with it, far better than you will ever do. So the real question is “what’s going to look badass and cool?” The answer is “ they all look tacticool. “

I would suggest shooting with the factory stock for a while and get to be more of a gun guy; that will make it easier for you to decide what you want. Might be you find yourself with a completely different rifle.

You might want to consider some of the chassis offered by MDT. mdttac.com

Their ACC is a pretty fair chassis, but they have several nice chassis if that is what you really want. Boyd’s makes some really nice wood stocks too, as Coalcracker suggested. They are worth checking out too.

I don't think tweaky likes us. Doubt we will hear back. Personally if i was going to change stocks from a synthetic one. Or to upgrade a wood one. I would go with a Boyds. https://www.boydsgunstocks.com/
That is what I did with my bolt action, switched from the Hogue Overmolded stock to a Boyds laminate. I can't afford a chassis.
