I'm looking at building a .264 win on a Tikka M695 action. Boyd's stocks has a couple differen thumbhole stocks I'm deciding between. The featherweight and the varmint thumbhole. Weight isnt really the deciding factor for me. Difference in the 2 is a half pound I think. I like the idea of the beaver tail forend on the varmint. And I'm putting a #4 or possibly #5 contour barrell finished @ 27" in it so possibly be better to have more material for the barrell channel? (Jesus...I think I'm answering my own questions). Anyways....anyone know of different options for a stock for that action that won't break the bank? Any ideas on this build in general? Should I be looking at doing something different with this platform? Thanks in advance.
