Howdy and Merry Christmas to all, I have a Savage 112BVSS with the factory laminated stock and a Savage 111F with the factory synthetic stock (can you tell that I like the long action Savages /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif) and I love them both. But I just wonder which stock wil hold up/perform better in cold wet weather? By the way these are my first rifles with stocks like this, thought I'd join the 21st centry. I hope this is the right forum to post this question in, sorry if it's not. Thanks.
