    I have two mousers 98s thumb hole rifles. one is a 338 and the other is a 270. I like them allot But the key for me is the grip portion of the stock needs to be the right size for your hand. My 270 fits me much better then my 338 i have actually thought about doing some more shaving of the stock and refinishing the whole stock. The thing that kills me is the stock is flawless hard for me to justify redoing it. I also have a mouser 98 30-06 that is a standard stock that i love. I like the look of the standard stock clean and classic but the thumb hole's look mean and feel real solid when you shot them. Seems to make me feel like the gun is more connected to my body as if it was a extension of my arm

    I like traditional stocks but the thumb hole stock do distribute the recoil over a larger area IE the web in your hand.
