    Dpt chassis or boyds thumbhole?

    Ok folks, thoughts?
    Pros and cons?

    T3 in 308 pts, 3shots touching at 100m wih factory stock, using hornady superperformance. Used on tree stands on Stewart island with some tight bush but mainly used in Canterbury for open tops...

    Plastic fantastic is ok but want something different.

    Other option would be the T3 in 223 for the same uses and options. (hares not redskins in Canterbury)

    I have a dpt chassis (tikka, hunter?, normal - right handed) haven't put a action on it yet, and hence unshot - however bloody well made and light as. Great service from dpt to.

    I would say go for dpt.

    Having just fitted the Boyd's laminated thumbhole to my T3 in .223 I'm absolutely rapt. I'm not familiar with the DPT I admit but compared to the previous plastic Tikka stock there's absolutely no comparison!

    Hang on in there for your LH Boyd's stock

    I had a look at the DPT chassis in Greg's and it struck me as a pretty useful design (as a previous Ruger PR owner).

    I bought a (used) 22-250 with a boyds thumbhole and thought, Great!
    After shooting it, not so sure. Only had one outing with it but it practically climbs out of my forehand-hold. Never had anything like it.
    A similar howa 1500, 308 in the regular hogue is tame as, by comparison.
    Have to do a lot more shooting with it but definitely view the boyds as a little suss at the mo.
    my 10c worth.
