A friend of mine and I are interested in making a rifle stock with CNC to fit a Mauser action so we can have some nice target rifles. Part of that project will require a new stock for the rifles, and I’d like to make one using a CNC router that’s my own custom design. This page is where I am collecting notes until its time to actually start the project.

The “pull” is the length from trigger center to butt plate, and is usually 13 1/2″ to 13 3/4″…
Picatinny Rail Dimensions
.220 Swift: High velocity, flat trajectory, minimal recoil. Probably ideal for Bobby’s gun.
.244/6mm Remington: Very highly regarded in the accuracy circles it seems.
.308 Winchester: “Probably the best thing to be said of the .308 is it is capable of phenomenal accuracy; it is possibly the single most inherently accurate cartridge of a caliber larger than 6mm ever designed.” Could be the one for Bob’s gun.
