Thumbhole stock rifle? Can't find em!

I have handled a few thumbhole stocked rifles and I freaking love them. They have all been more varmiter like style/loads. I can not find one in the larger loadings like a .300RUM, 338 Lapua or 30-378 ROY. I was wondering if anyone knows of any being made or some good options.

I am also considering getting one in a medium calibure for a lightweight carry rifle for out to say 500 yards on Elk/Mule deer. Suggestions wanted on that asl well.

Thanks all!!

    I have done up a couple of "budget" rifles in the last few months. Gotta say...for the price BOYD'S (I think that is how you spell it) thumbhole laminated stocks are an incredable value!! Check them out. And yes, they will need a bedding job, but so did the 800 dollar McMillan A-5!!!
