    Want a good serviceable walnut stock for my deer rifle. Is custom the way to go or should I just use something like a Boyd stock. I do not want a synthetic or laminate.

    Boyds, MidwayUSA, Numrich Arms or Ebay will offer something to your liking.

    Richards Microfit sells some pretty nice claro walnut semi inletted that you can finish to your taste. I've done a lot of business with these folks and they've always sent me high quality materials.

    If you don't want to put in the time and effort of building your own stock, you might want to check out Accurate Innovations. I have no experience with them (yet) but have spoken to them and they seem to have a good product.

    Anybody have experience yet with Accurate Innovations? Their stocks look very nice and they aren't that expensive.

    HOMER--- I HAVE TALKED TO ACCURATE INNOVATIONS AT LENGTH. AS A RESULT, I HAVE ORDERED SEVERAL OF THEIR STOCKS FOR IMMEDIATE DELIVERY, AND PLACED AN ORDER FOR 3 MORE THAT THEY WILL HAVE TO MAKE FOR ME. I SPECIALIZE IN BUILDING 30-378 AND 338-378 RIFLES WITH HEAVY BARRELS ON MK V ACTIONS, AND THEY ARE ABLE TO SUPPLY TARGET OR VARMINT STOCKS WITH ALUMINUM BEDDING INSERTS AND BARREL CHANNELS FOR HEAVY TAPER BARRELS SUCH AS THE SHILEN #7 STAINLESS SELECT MATCH. MOST OF MY RIFLES WEIGH BETWEEN 12 AND 18 lbs SCOPED, WITH UP TO 28" BBL LENGTH. MY NEXT PROJECT IS A 30-378 WITH A 28" HART HVY BBL AND NO BRAKE, TRYING FOR 10 - 11 lbs SCOPED... AS SOON AS THE 1ST ORDER COMES IN, I WILL POST IMPRESSIONS, AND AS SOON AS I HAVE RANGE RESULTS, WILL POST AGAIN. THEY DO THEIR OWN MANUFACTURE; INSERTS, STOCKS, AND ASSEMBLY. NOTHING OUTSOURCED BUT MATERIAL: (AND THEY ARE GUN GUYS). I AM VERY OPTIMISTIC. STAY TUNED.

    Welcome to the Long range hunting forums and thanks for posting.

    I would ask one favor from you. PLEASE STOP YELLING. It is customary to reserve caps for adding emphasis or displaying a loud tone. Some also find it hard to see and read well.

    Thanks and again welcome to LRH. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif
