Most of the time I am sure most of us want to cut weight. In the situation of a heavy recoiling chambering this is information that may let someone know they don't want this option.
I spoke with a Rep two days ago about an MCS-EH1 for a Tikka 300 Win Mag for a friend. It is a very light weight stock for any rifle, much less a 300 Win Mag I am going to load with 210 gr. bullets. We will address that recoil with a brake so the rifle is more pleasant to carry.
