Folks I am new here but I have lurked for information and knowledge off and on for the past few years. Now that I have been baptized in the African bush I feel it appropriate that I officially sign up. I went on my first safari in 2018 and I am already planning the next trip and buffalo is the main quarry. I know I will need to step it up from my trusty .338 Win Mag and have already acquired a .375 Ruger. I plan to purchase a new stock and want your experienced opinions here.

What style stock or stock shape is preferable when shooting these bigger bore rifles? I plan to order a stock for my 375 Ruger. Not sure if I should go classic, hunter or safari express? As stated, I have shot a .338 Win Mag that's in a Brown Precision stock for the past 17 yrs. with no issues for reference. Any other suggestions than the ones below would also be appreciated. Thanks

my personal taste is the Winchester supergrade, if it can fit your action.
very little drop at heel for recoil control.
have used that stock a lot and it is very user friendly.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
