Rifle stock design advice

I am working on a project that involves a custom rifle stock and I really want to do something more fun than grabbing a Ruger 1022 stl file. However, I'm really not sure if there is an optimal design (or logic) behind the pistol grip and trigger placement. Gripwise, I'm specifically wondering if there's an angle I should mostly keep to. I figure, worst case, I'll just measure from there to find a reasonable trigger site.

Subscribing for pics and ideas. I have a project I need a stock for as well.

First attempt is close, but not quite there. It feels a bit too large in my hand and the trigger placement is now too far forward (which is kind of funny, because I'd just moved it there prior to making this grip test )

I'm going to rework it to be a tad narrower and then behind the work on the back half.

Anytime I need to design a stock, I will find a real gun that resembles what I want, overlay it to scale (i.e. google the length of the gun, and match the image scale to an image of my trigger mechanism beside a ruler), and use that as a reference.

I assume you don't want to do the same as your physical stock, so you'd have to find an image of what you want and overlay it like I did here.
