I have a rookie question. I recently purchased a CZ455 with the Evolution stock. I bought it knowing the stock was going to go as I didn't like it.
Now the stock is gone.
I have narrowed the replacement down to a Tacticool and CZ Varmint stock.
My rest is a Caldwell, The Rock.
I'm going over the pros and cons of each stock. Do any of you have any ideas of which either would be better or do you have any affordable ideas for a different stock.
Thanks for your input. I just started bench rest shooting last month and really enjoy it.

Hi Backlash,
If you are competing in the IR 50/50 I would consider staying with the Evolution stock. It may weigh under 7.5lbs.& that will allow you to compete in the sporter class as well. If so, that will allow you to get the most seat time. That's important.
I think you'll find that you'll eventually that you'll want a stock more suited for benchrest & most likely a different rifle depending on how it shoots. Observe what the regulars are using & ask lots of questions! Most are willing to share what they've learned & are willing to help.
I'm also new to rimfire benchrest shooting & have learned a lot from doing the above. Some good info in the forum section here as well. Good luck!
