I'm building a bolt action rifle, and I want some minor amounts of cast-off and toe-out built into the stock. I've got the action inletted into a pattern stock that I can now play around with to get the shape and geometry worked out (Bondo, woodrasps, trail and error, etc.). When I have the pattern stock final, I'll send it out to have it duplicated in nice piece of walnut. My question is: in a stock with a pistol grip, does the cast-off start to fade in at the rear of the tang or at the rear of the pistol grip (i.e. around the comb nose)? I'm thinking the difference between the two might be negligible. But if it starts to come in at the rear of the tang then I assume the pistol grip is slight out of line with the trigger. I've included a picture here to illustrate my question. I welcome and appreciate any input. I'm hoping to learn from others and thereby minimize my efforts with Bondo and woodrasps! Larry

IMO, it begins at the rear of the tang. I have built in cast on a rifle stock, and began it there, and it looks right to me.


May God bless America and those who defend her.
