I notice that all the longerange rifles do not use a thumble style stock. I was thinking of puttting one on my new rifle. 300rum. Im I making a mistake? this is a hunting rifle for 400-600yd shooting. antelope-elk. how about a "dual grip" ?
Lots of folks like thumbholes. Myself included. If you like 'em that's all that matters. Only downside I can think of is having to take your thumb out to flick the safety. Or learning to flip the safety with your trigger finger.
I've never had a problem. And I've never had to think about it when hunting.
