I’ve done lots of looking, but have failed to find any info on laminated stocks. I am looking to buy a new .300 and I am eyeing up the Tikka T3. I like the feel of the Laminated Stock a lot better than the Synthetic Stock. It just feels a lot more balanced to me. The weight difference is not that significant, mere ½ lb in the magnum models. The LS weighs in at 6 13/16 lbs and the SS at 6 3/8 lbs. One feller told me to drill a hole in one side of the synthetic stock, pour some lead in it to balance it out and fill the rest of the cavity with expandable foam…anyone ever heard of this? If the Laminated will hold up just the same, I would rather carry that.
So my question is how do laminated stocks hold-up/react in the weather and what pros and cons do you all have for me concerning laminate and synthetic stocks. I am open to all opinions and criticisms so don’t hold anything back.
Thanks in advance,
