it doesnt matter. a rifle typically is not secured by the magazine. they are bedded off the reciever at the rear and front. there is no real difference. long as the stock isnt made of balsa wood or rubber rigidity isnt a factor as the bullet has left the barrel before the effects of recoil start.
the stock is all about ergonomics and making sure the rifle is properly bedded.
