    Default Hogue Stock?

    I have a Ruger M77 Mark II 7mm rem mag with a laminate stock. Gun weighs more than nine pounds. How light are hogue stocks? I would like to significantly reduce weight without buying another gun. Any ideas? Which hogue stock would be the best for hunting?

    Hogue stocks are heavy and not the answer to your problem. Plus the stock flexes with relative ease. Not cool.

    Bansner makes a stock for your rifle that weighs in at 23 oz. I really think they are your only option for a lightweight stock for the Ruger action.

    I have a Hogue full bed stock on a Ruger MkII 338 win mag ruger improved.

    The stocks are heavy. But I don't have a flex problem, probably because of the full bed.

    It fits me perfect. One of my favorite rifles.

    Another option is the Ruger factory plastic stock. It's a cheapo stock. I have one in camo on a Ruger 338 rcm.
    I glass bedded it, floated the barrel, and it shoots well. It's light and I don't care if the stock gets barked up.

    I have a 30-06 with the laminate stock. Kinda slick to hold onto, I'm thinking about trying a little checkering on it.

    Good luck and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!
