Hello everybody. Brain picking time please.
I know there have been threads before about full stocks, but I cant seem to find any that answer my questions. I have always liked the look of the full stock rifles, but never known anyone with one and Ive seen a very nice Steyr full stock in .308.
What I was wondering is, are they vastly different from a half stock rifle to shoot?, if theyre different at all.
What, if any, difference does the shorter barrel make to the rifles performance?
Its stated that due to their shorter length they make ideal woodland stalking rifles, but does that mean that they make less than ideal rifles for the open hill?
And what about maintenance. Because the barrel isnt floating are there any pitfalls regarding looking after the rifle or not.
Sorry to be a pain with all the questions, but as I said, I dont know anyone with one to ask!
Any help would be much appreciated. Cheers.
