    Hey guys. Anyone have a Ruger MkII lightweight in .338? I am thinking of changing to a Ross Featherweight thumbhole stock since my old ruger stock is 20yrs old. but don't want to increase the weight. Has anyone else tried this yet? Any other stock suggestions?

    You asked for other stock opinions? I really like the McMillan hunter stock. Weight is just over 2 lbs.

    The name of the stock for your rifle is called the Mark II Hunter.
    link: McMillan Hunting Stocks, McMillan Fiberglass Stocks, Synthetic Stocks, Hunting & Sport Stocks

    Description:

    The Ruger Mark II Hunter has a monte carlo cheekpiece and a palm swell. It also has a small amount of cast off and cant, which makes for easier target acquisition. The forend of this stock is very narrow and will take up to a #4 barrel contour with a short barrel cylinder. The stock is available in right and left hand. For MKII actions only.
