I went over to the safe today and picked up my .375 Ruger Alaskan. I really like this gun and it really fits me well. I think it is a little on the heavy side though. I have a Nikon 2-7x32 on it and that brings the weight of the rifle up to 9.6 pounds empty. Has anyone replaced the factory stock with a custom stock on one of these? Would it lighten it up much if I did replace the stock? I know that it will increase recoil by some but I would rather have a little more recoil and less weight I think. If BRWNBR can shoot that 7 pound .416 I know I could handle a lightened up .375 .
