I am curious as to the motivation for the question.
For what it is worth: I am old-school and prefer wood.

Nothing nefarious! I'm seeing both at very reduced prices and debating grabbing one just because.

I have a Hawkeye All Weather. I originally intended to replace the stock with a Boyds laminate stock. However, the Ruger stock isn't that bad at all. No flex, good solid bedding and the rifle shoots lights out. It's ordinary looking but it gets the job done. I'm keeping it.

I've owned a couple rifles with Hogue stocks. Still have a 10/22 with one. They're just ok IMO. Im not a weight weenie but the Hogues are relatively heavy for what they are.

If you really want to replace the stock I recommend getting something from Boyds. They have just about any configuration you could want for a reasonable price.

Nrah is an unknown quantity at this point
I've got an old "canoe paddle" on M77 MK II, in 30.06, it's the most serious hunter I have. I just keep liking it better and better, the longer I have it.

Like Bonk said, it's "lights out" reliable, my best hunting rifle.
