    Default hollow synthetic stock

    has anyone ever tried to fill a hollow synthetic stock? Perhaps with foam?
    Is this possible or just a bad idea?

    Never tried it, but it seems like a good idea to me. I recommended it to a friend with a Tikka and he thought it was a good idea.

    Default Foam works

    Did it to a friend's Savage. Just completely filled it with the expandable foam and trimmed the excess before putting the pad back on. Completely got rid of the hollow sound.

    My Encore was butt-light and hollow-sounding.

    I stuffed it with fiber-glass cloth then poured in the mixture.

    Works great.

    Canned foam works great. Becareful to not overfill the stock - a little goes a long - it expands bigger than you will think. I did this to an old ramline stock worked great.

    What's the main purpose of filling the stock with foam? Is it just to deaden the sound? I imagine it might help stiffen it slightly too?

    Yep it would give it a little more strength too... a couple of advantages.
