I quite agree being of the 'larger' build and I will be making some adjustments over the next few days to get the stock a few inches higher so not to crane my next whilst rangefinding. Have a nice piece of 2" wide ally that I will be bending to the right shape.

I need to raise the stock about 100mm from the knee but have space to put hand between the stock as is and the bottom of the ally for standers. A work in progress I think it called to get it ready for Wendover.
