Re: WOOD or PLASTIC?
The main benefits of synthetic is that most have a full aluminum bed block which improves accuracy and regidity. Also, the synthetic fibers won't expand & contract with temperature swings like a wooden stock will, causing accuracy swings.
I am synthetic fan, but my .280 AI / .25-06 AI will be on a vintage BDL wood stock because I got it for a really good price, and my rifle is a budget build. I will eventually swap it over to an original Sendero SF stock (no palm swell), if I can find one for a reasonable price.
