Synthetic stock really has less recoil? I guess I mean felt recoil, I've actually never heard that term before. Everyone has always told me synthetic is lighter and more recoil or whatever it is they tell me.
I do like the way wood looks a lot more than plain black.
My dad has a reloading room, I can have anything made that I need. I have lots of .270 and 30-06 rifle to choose from in my family, I just like smaller. If I were to elk hunt, I would suck it up and use something larger.
