The .308 is a fun round to shoot and is very mild in recoil. The more time you spend behind the trigger you will forget about the recoil.
Agreed 100%. Dad always wanted the biggest and best for his kids. Wish he would have left out the biggest part when he bought me this gun. LoL. As I've gotten older and developed a love for firearms and shooting I have gotten more and more confident in my abilities. Trust me, the flinch is always in the back of my mind but if the trigger snaps on an empty chamber or dead round now the flinch is nowhere to be found. That .338 still sits in my safe and one day I will break it back out just to conquer it. It is a great round and has its purpose.

I have that hogue overmolded stock on my FN-PBR (it comes standard on that rifle). Its great, but its really heavy, which is good / bad.

So, if you're already looking at that stock, you might want to consider trying to find an FN PBR or even an SPR if your budget allows. Its the Winchester 70 action with detachable box mag.

They come with a badger base and some have the rings, too. For glass on mine, I'm using a SWFA SS HD 5-20 and I'm happy with the setup. The glass was actually quite a bit more expensive than the rifle. heh.

Thanks for the info. That reminds me of a Remington 700 sps tactical. They look awesome and shoot good but I'm looking to build something like a mountain style rifle.

I just wanted to let you know that the hogue stock is a beast. It would not be my first choice to lug through the woods. I do take it out to my blind pretty often, though. I actually have a mossberg maverick in .308 with a Bushnell Elite 4200 Rainguard HD scope that is my woods gun. Its super light, relatively rust resistant, and has a decent stock. It doesn't have an accutrigger though. lol.

I'm curious - What specific attributes of the mountain rifle are you trying to build around?

Basically want a 22" light contour barrel, nice trigger (I'm a fan of 2 stages), drop mag. I love the feel of Hogue stocks. Do you have any idea how much heavier they are compared to an average factory stock? I assumed all the weight on that fn & sps came from the bull barrel.

a fair bit of weight does come from the bull barrel, but its only an 18" bull barrel.

I would say its at least 3x heavier than the composite stock on my Mossberg Maverick .308.

They list it at: Approximate weight: 2.75 lbs.

Do you have any idea what a factory stock weighs?
