Re: Brown Bear Pics
The laminated stocks work good on the coast. . Just give them a good sealing coat inside. . I reccomend a good bedding job. By someone that understands rifles that have some recoil being worked under water.
Certain places need s little relief area gap. Like the rear tang and rear of the trigger guard. . Any where the stock and action contact in the mortice that is angled. . . Think splitting firewood with a wedge.
Synthetic stocks aren't guaranteed to not get destroyed. I've broke several.
Only the Zytel canoe paddle Ruger stock is tough enough for lots of hammering away. Like close to 2,000 rounds of 338 win mag. Then more than 1500 rounds of 458 Win Mag. On the one stock. . Tough, stocks.
