    I've got an old remmy 788 in 6mm rem that was given to me by my dad. It's long needed to be restocked (POI shifts up to 3inch @100 depending on humidity) It shoots amazingly well, but it isn't anything special. I shot my first deer with it, and my daughter is almost old enough to hunt, so it's on it's way to being hers. I looked everywhere for a synthetic stock for it at a reasonable price... and found squat. I came across an older Ramline stock that fits it for $80 on another board, and just couldn't say no (it should be here in a day or two). The problem is that Ramline no longer exists and I can't find much info on it, not even any close-up pics. I was wondering if anyone has one, or knows anything about them, ie- are they a pain to bed, how's the fit finish, etc. I'm sure it'll cure the wondering POI, but if anyone could enlighten me about Ramline I'd sure appreciate it.

    I had one on a 338 Win mag. It worked fine but was nothing to get excited about. Fit was drop in ok so I did not bed it. Gun shot as well with it as its wood stock. Seemed to reduce felt recoil.
