If you read it right, he wanted a lesser expensive alternative. He also stated it shot the same after he did the exact same work that was done to the Russo. He didn't want to pay for another expensive stock to ruin in the field.

LILTank Correct.
I sent Joel the piece of Ironwood that I got from a friend ( who got from an old gentleman he did some work for, and that guy got it from an estate sale )
I just had to open up the barrel channel on the JR stock to fit the heavy palma contour of my broughton barrel, then Devcon bedded it and then I used auto clear to finish it.
I wanted a stock to use for hunting that I DIDN'T have to worry about dinging and denting up.
I was in no way saying anything negative about Joels stock, just preserving it for range duty.
Roninflag, I hunted south of Payson in unit 22. That is the natural color of Ironwood. I do have a Mesquite stock on a Contender in 223 that I made my self, it is a real heavy wood. Here it is.
