Let me start off by saying I have an 'Nam style AR15, T/C Venture in 338 WM, Mossberg 30-30, Mosin Nagant, and M1 Garand. I recently acquired a wooden Mini 14 stock (curved butt). I am currently refinishing it and have plans to install a rubber recoil pad, checker it, and create Mosin Nagant style sling attachments. Originally I was going to sell the stock. Well, now I am getting this feeling to buy a Mini Series rifle...I don't know why but I just keep getting this feeling everytime I look at one. I have considered selling my Mossberg 30-30. I have recently reevaluated my hunting rifle needs and keep thinking to use strictly 338 win mag. We have Sitka deer and big brownies. I found i can handload 160 grains (probably light to mid charge loads) for deer and load bigger grain for the brownies. Now on to my questions 1. Will a wood stock for mini 14 fit a mini 30? 2. Should I sell my 30-30 and get a Mini 14/30?
