Has anyone out there tried a Boyds stock on their Ruger Ranch rifle 450 bm ? I have been considering about getting Boyds thumbhole stock for mine.

I put one of their plain stained birch stocks on mine. I have also been communicating with a guy on one of the Ruger forums. He put his in Boyds thumbhole stock. We both had to remove some of the wood from the top of the stock just behind the wrist We had to do that because our bolts were hitting the stock when our bolts were pulled back to its most rearward position. You might have to do that to your stock if you buy one. I recently read some where that people were shimming their barreled actions so the bolt didn't hit the stock in the rearward position. I also recommend buying a set of pillars from V3 Precision. Also purchase everything you need from Boyds all at the same time as their shipping is a flat rate of $12 + for any item large or small.
