Thumb hole or Pistol grip ?

OK Guy's,
I have my new basic Rem. 700 in 300rum. It needs a new stock. I will practices glass bedding the cheep stock. I like the idea of the thumb hole stock, but the pistol grip like the A-5 looks good too. Not sure who makes a good thumb hole stock. I need to fined one to try at the gun store. My main concern is with the thumb hole stock. Does it flex and if so dose it mater at that end?

Thanks for the help

Thumb hole stock are very comfortable if they are made to fit your hand ,the A5 is also comfortable if its made to fit your hand. I would suggest getting a good laminated stock in the A5 pattern

We all know where to get those , right kids :p

The thumbhole isin't gonna flex any more than an regular desgined stock maybe even less due to its desgine. I personaly like the A5 style and getting one in laminate makes it better casue you can sand it to fit your hand perfectly , I have to do this to all of my to make my fat paw happy. Drop Joel Russo a line and ask if you can see some of his thumbhole stock and some of his A5-L's , hes a great guy to deal with and offers great products at better than reaonable prices.

Here is a pic of an A5-L that I did for my 260 , and I have another in the works for a F-class gun

Are you planning on shooting past 1140 yards?

Oregon Trail Antelope Part 2a

Do you need to shoot better groups than this.

Send Joel Russo an email. You can look him up in the forum membership. He will build you a great laminated thumbhole or a laminated A-5.

Another A5L

I had both and I will tell you I think the A5 is easier to get behind than the Thumbhole shooting off a bipod. Just Personal opinion. Here is a pic of my rencent completed stock.
