You will love that stock on a hunting rifle... itís a good upgrade to the factory stock without adding noticeable weight.  I had my 308 Battue dropped in one and it makes a great carry rifle / bush gun.

Recommended:

35-45in/lbs with factory plastic mag bottom / trigger guard
45-65in/lbs with metal mag bottom / trigger guard

There seems to be no exact # but this is the norm.

I am looking for a lightweight hunter stock also.
The only bell & Carlson stock Iíve tried was on a friends rifle and it seemed to be a bit difficult to wrap my thumb around.  I donít know which model I was trying but I would like any feedback regarding a B&c stock with a more vertical grip
