Have a second stock made.

Problem will be solved if you just get a second stock made for the rifle. You will get all the value back if you ever sell it.

Bi-Pod is an easy fix.

If you are shooting off of a rest, then I suggest you buy and mount a Bi-Pod and use it. Get sighted in and for that range, you will not have cant problems. No apostrophe in this type of "cant"
