9.3x57 is close to .35 Whelen, 9.3x62 is a whole new ballgame.

Shoot the Vanguard as is for a while before you drop $ on aftermarket stock. I don't find .338 recoil all that objectionable.

i like the 338, have had one for some time and use it deer hunting also. I found the with the right bullet and load its a pretty good allround caliber.
