I completely agree with you there Elvis. I too find that the Weatherby style stock just fits me and as you put it, it just melts into you.

I like the line "Weatherby Mark V Deluxe is the Rolls-Royce of hunting rifles." I've been thinking the same thing, just couldn't verbalize it. Couldn't agree more.

Who manufactures the Mark V Deluxe stock for Weatherby. It is called "AA" grade fancy walnut, while the Vanguard Deluxe is called a "AA" claro walnut with high gloss finish. Is there a difference in the woods used, since they both say "AA" grade, or is it the same type wood with different finishes?

The AA grading means the level of figure (the amount of grain for a lack of a better way to put it) not the type of wood.  There's several different walnut woods such as but not limited to English, Turkish, and Carlo.  The same is true with Maples and Oaks, there's hard maple, soft maple, curly maple, bird's eye maple, white oak, yellow oak to name just a few.
Nothing is better than a Weatherby, big bore magnum, or a Colt.
