.338 ultra light?

Hey guys. Anyone have a Ruger MkII lightweight in .338? I am thinking of changing to a Ross Featherweight thumbhole stock since my old ruger stock is 20yrs old. but don't want to increase the weight. Has anyone else tried this yet? Any other stock suggestions?

Re: .338 ultra light?

You asked for other stock opinions? I really like the McMillan hunter stock. Weight is just over 2 lbs.

The name of the stock for your rifle is called the Mark II Hunter.

The Ruger Mark II Hunter has a monte carlo cheekpiece and a palm swell. It also has a small amount of cast off and cant, which makes for easier target acquisition. The forend of this stock is very narrow and will take up to a #4 barrel contour with a short barrel cylinder. The stock is available in right and left hand. For MKII actions only.
