    Default Remington stock for a 416

    As I am new fairly new to this forum I hope that you guys aren't tired of my questions yet. I the guys I hunt with and my gunsmith are mostly varmint hunters and or long range shooters, so the info that I get from this forum is nearly priceless for my Africa adventures.

    My query for the day is. I am building my 416 Rigby on a rem. 700 action. To beat someone to the puntch, I know it is not a CRF but I have been shooting rem. 700s and 7s since I was 12 so it is the gun I am most comfortable with. Back to the question, is a BDL stock strong enough to take the recoil of a Rigby? The pistol grip seems much thinner then a CZ that I have been shooting for someone else. I prefer wood but would synthetic take the recoil better?

    I'll throw my two cents in and say have it built on a synthetic stock. They take a beating a lot better than wood. And synthetic stocks...for me...feel better in my hands..the best stocks are usually bedded well out of the gate and shoot very excellent. I like wood too...but would go with the synthetic.

    I agree with enysse - go with synthetic. Hogue makes a good one with a full-length aluminum block. My favorite is the H-S Precision - I've owned 3 of them and all were great.
