The title about sums it up. I have a Savage Hog Hunter in .223. It's a nice rifle, but the stock is flimsy, and the magazine is a pain to load.

I'd like to upgrade the stock and convert it to a DBM of some sort, but I don't want to spend $500+ or get a gunsmith involved.

I'd prefer to do this with a combination of a Hogue stock of some sort and drop in parts if possible, but I'm open to ideas.

Suggestions?

PSV118 HS Precision stock for $340 http://www.stockysstocks.com/servlet/the-403/aluminum-bedded-savage-stock/Detail
PST114 HS Precision stock for $390 http://www.stockysstocks.com/servlet/the-404/H-dsh-S-Precision-Pro-dsh-Series-M24/Detail

I am not sure of what kind of DBM they accept.

Those are the only stocks that fit your criteria from stockystocks.com

The steel Savage factory DBM is part number 106238, and runs about $68 directly from Savage. The 223 magazine is part number 55155.

Here's about your best option for a readily available aftermarket stock for a Savage factory DBM: http://www.midwayusa.com/product/761001

If you keep your eye open on SnipersHide, 24HourCampfire, LongRangeHunting, etc. you can find used takeoff HS Precision stocks in the $200-250 range. Also, any stock that has been inletted for CDI Precision DBM will also work with the Savage factory DBM (tried it myself in a McMillan A5).

I have been patiently waiting for PTG to release their stealth bottom metal any day now. Hopefully soon because I am wanting to make sure of the inlet before I order a McMillan A3 for it. If it takes much longer I'm going to go with the CDI conversion for mine.

if you don't want to spend to much on a stock look at the boyds tacticool stock, they inlet for most savages. it will be a lot stiffer then any hogue stock. if you glass and pillar bed it, I bet it would surprise you.
