I also dont have enough room to put my scope covers on the scope, as they
get jammed between the barrell and the scope. Maybe Ill have to go to higher rings also.
whats your preference and why?
I have the same issue with classic style stocks(Straight with no cheek piece and most of the
time they have no cast.
Some of the factory stocks have a check piece but it is no higher than the classic design.
I have to use a stock with a Monte Carlo check piece because it is the highest of all designs,
looks good and raises the head high enough for the 50+mm scopes and normally has
about a 1/2 inch of cast.
For bad weather like most of the time in Alaska I would recommend the laminates or the
composite stock because of stability.
