    I have a weatherby van gaurd in 257, and was wondering what would be a good stock for the rifle? I really don't like the factory stock, looking to trim some weight off of gun. I'm wanting to make it a fairly lite packing around for mule deer.

    Thanks guys

    In all fairness, the factory stock is about as light as you'll ever get.

    The most common "not heavy" upgrade is a Bell & Carlson Medalist Sporter stock. I have this on a few Weatherbys and it works well.
