Which stock profile would you choose?

So I am considering these 3 profile choices for my next rifle which will be a 7WSM or a 338 EDGE.

Re: Which stock profile would you choose?

In all reality I like them all, especially the 2nd one for a long distance rig. However, I have #3 on a 7mm Rem Mag and it is most user friendly for hunting. In fact it's even the same color. It's nice, sturdy and carries well for long distances.

Len,
On the 7 WSM I would go with #1 stock. You don't need the extra width in the forearm.
For the 338 EDGE, I would go with # 2, and add the adj cheek piece.
The 7 WSM would be a nice light carry rig, but I sure liked the 338 EDGE I had.

Len~

It all depends on whether either one of these rifles are going to be "carry guns".
What finished weight are you going for. I know these stocks will weigh close to the same, but some profiles are more user friendly than others.

I like #2 profile . Joel will be making me one similar to that for a 7mm wsm I'm having built. This guns intended purpose is to be shot from a bench or prone only though.

Re: Which stock profile would you choose?

Looks like someone has a trio of Manner stocks to pic from. I would go with #2 and the Edge but I tend to lean more toward more power and a stock with a more vertical grip design.

I'd pick #2 for both applications.

However, I'd go to working on it immediately. I can't seem to live with that slant on the bottom of the butt stock.
