I have noticed from several pictures on these posts that the majority of you don't use a typical hunting stock, most of them appear to be either a tactical or target type. What advantages do they offer over a traditional hunting stock? Are there any disadvantages to them when used in the field?

Re: Stocks

your correct about alot of the Long range stocks looking
"tactical" , I think that the main reason is that they are more stabil from differant shooting positions like prone or from the bench. They generaly have a more verttical grip , wideer forend and a butt section that is semi close to the same plane of the forend , this allows the gun to recoil back in the same direction and it will return to battery pretty consistanly.
