Your favorite hunting stock?

Hello gents,

I was wondering if you could share your opinions on whatīs your favorite/most comfortable stock for a light weight hunting rifle. I want to replace the factory stock of a Savage rifle in 7mm-08. It will be used for both deer and fox hunting in open landscape so most shoots will be prone but still it must be comfortable to shoot offhand as well if I go abroad to Sweden for moose hunting. Most shots will be from 100-300 meters, quite short ranges compared to what many here are hunting. Since I live in Iceland I donīt have the chance to try out many stock patterns but the factory stock I like the most is the Sako 75 stock. I also find the thought of a thumbhole stock appealing but Iīve never tryed one so opinions on them as others would be greatly appreciated.

    I just got my Mcmillan Lazzeroni sporter stock and it is awesome. It shoulders like a high grade O/U shotgun! It is not what I would call super light weight but it's not heavy either.

    Every possible thing to reduce recoil has been thought of and integrated into the design.

    Worth a look. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    Yep, the Lazzeroni does indeed look very nice. Only problem is that itīs not available for Savage actions [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]

    Jon are you sure the Lazz isnt made for Savages? I'm pretty sure any stock that works for the Rem 700 can be inleted for Savages. The HTG is a very good choice also.

    Charles you are probably right, I looked back on their website and there it says the Lazzeroni is available for Remington STYLE actions. Must admit though I dont know if the Savage action is classed as a Remington style action or not [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] Anyone care to educate me...

    I recieved my Lazzeroni stock last week after a five month wait. My buyers remorse vanished when I removed it from the wrapper. If they inlet for savage, I can't recommend this stock enough. (wait was due to them bedding the barrelled action)
