I like the looks of wood but the stability of synthetic. I'll explain some time ago I was elk hunting my rifle was a 700 BDL 7mm wood stock. One day it was 40 degrees and rain the next was just above zero. My rifle changed POI
8" blame it on bad bedding or what ever. The next year I had a Brown stock on it and never had an issue again. So I'd say for looks wood but for usage synthetic.
