Re: choate stock?

DWM,
was able to take a look at your stock pics earlier today. can't right now.

how much weight were you able to add to the stock? how much does it weigh now?

do you know if this stock would be good for a high recoiling rifle like the 338 ultra mag?

for the price it seems like a great stock.

Re: choate stock?

just bringing back an old post.

I just finally purchased a sendero in 300 ultra mag. have the choate ultimate sniper stock in olive green on order. I will be adding lead weight to it (bird shot). how do you epoxy this in?mix the birdshot with the epoxy and pour it in or first put the shot in the stock and pour epoxy over it?

what type of epoxy can be used?

Mix up the shot in the epoxy. Rough up the inside, or best to inlet area's to mechanically lock it in place. I think my brothers is completely full, grip and butt both. What he epoxied into the forend came loose, as he just dumped it in there.

I don't remember how much weight he was able to add to his.

Any epoxy should do the trick.

Re: choate stock?

Brent, thanks for the info. how do you like this stock? do you find it really helped with handling recoil? did you have to do any bedding?
my stock was shipped today so I should get it in a few days. can't wait. this is very hard. have not shot this rifle yet.
did your epoxy soak into all lead areas or just form a coating plug? I am thinking of a couple tubes of Marine Glue. this stuff sticks to anything.
any other modifications to the stock that you felt were needed?

Re: choate stock?

It was just bolted in, never skim bedded on Derricks. Dad skim bedded all his though.

Email me and I'll send you a pic of a "real" modified one.

Mods aren't really necessary, just preferance. The grip thinned and recontoured smaller in diameter at the top is all I'd do if I had one.

I'd stir the epoxy/glue up with the shot and make a so it looks like chocolate chip cookie dough that you went WAAAAAAY overboard on chocolate chips with [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] and apply it with what ever works to get it in there, a spoon or somethin.
It's going to set up and won't break loose unless you use too little glue. It's just an epoxy shot glob that bonds in place however you want it, just more flexible to use that way.

Recoil is reduced quite a bit, the muzzle brake was much more effective though. In conjunction, the 338/378 WBY shoots like a 243-308 though.
