Scenario: My 20" SS upper, will be my scoped "'yote gun."
I aint been 'yote'n yet (may never go if I don't cross the right path of a fellow calgunner) if I never go, then it'll be my "goin' 'yote huntin' next year gotta get these loads sighted gun." The point is that the rife should be capable of field conditions.

Should I put a Magpul PRS on it? I just got a CTR and I like it well enough to buy another, I just always thought my 20" would have something else...you know the "right stock." I'm perplexed...need to start this conversation before i spend too much $$$.

I went through the same quest for my .308 AR and tried several stocks. In the final analysis, the PRS was the right choice for me. YMMV

I went through the same thing with my 18" varmint rifle. The PRS was way better IMO than the CTR for the type of rifle that it is.

For that application, PRS all the way. It's a much meatier stock than the CTR which will help stabilize your rifle.

Is the PRS great for off-hand shooting? Does the extra weight help or does it just become a nuisance when carrying around?

Save your money, buy an A2 stock. It's just as good for a precision build.

Depends on the weighting of your rifle. If you're going to shoot a PRS off-hand, you wouldn't want a super-light front-end as it would throw off the balance of the rifle.

A2, just as the baby jesus intended ;)

if you seriously are having parallax issues and need sub moa - then I could see using the prs

+1. The A2 stock has always worked marvelously well for me (probably helps that I learned to shoot on one). Just-right LOP, nice cheek weld...I may even put one on my M4gery. Sacrilege, I know...but I really don't like shooting with that collapsible.

I'd vote PRS if your going to use the adjustments (if not A1 or A2), if the CTR won't do it for collapsible, then I'd consider a Vltor emod or modstock.

I've never seen a specific buttstock just for shooting dogs. My last hunt I used this though, just for the heck of it.

I chose the PRS over the A2 for my precision gun, and here's why.

I have mounted a 3-9x40 Scope on a riser to clear the BUIS (every rifle should have a BUIS IMHO). This made obtaining the proper cheek weld with an A2 nearly impossible (more like 'jaw weld'). The PRS has a solid built in adjustable cheek weld.
The barrel on that rifle is a heavy profile (fluted...but still rather heavy) so having the extra weight at the rear of the rifle that the PRS offers makes the rifle more balanced for off-hand shooting than an A2 does.
Finally I really liked the look of the PRS (not really something to base a purchase on if thinking rationally about function but the 'icing on the cake' for my decision).

The PRS is a nice stock , but very heavy for a field gun that is going to be carried a lot. The A1 stocks fit the vast majority of people very well and gives a very good cheek weld as well as being light.

PM me if you would like to feel the difference in some different builds as I live in Oroville.

I've got the PRS on my Mk12 clone, and I'm very happy with it.

This, though I rather prefer an A1.

I dumped my PRS and went back to the A2.

I have no need for irons on my heavy barreled rifle. If the scope goes down, I'm packing it in. If I had to hoof that rifle I'd white flag my way to club-POW. It's not for protecting me.
