Any tips on where I could get some good plywood for making a rifle stock?

Be careful what you buy. Some plywood that is marketed as marine ply is just rubbish. Very soft core veneers and very thin face veneers.
If you want good stuff you have to pay for it and plenty.
 I don't think there is anyone in Wellington that stocks good stuff. They will have to get if from Auckland and then you pay freight.
Fijian Kauri ply is not too bad but fairly plain.

I actually thought about you nova. Of course I don't need a lot and was going to try a couple of the boat builders listed in Wellington for possible off cuts. I know it's pricey, but easier to work with and lighter than solid timber.
Unless there's someone local that likes to work on boats whose garage I can raid???

Found some in Wellington at a timber specialist on Thornton Quay Nova.
$165 a sheet for 18 mm 2.4 x 1.2. Quite pricey. I would need three layers glued together to get the right thickness, so I will definitely get three maybe four blanks. Might be able to sell a couple if anyone is game to make a Stock?
I have looked into getting a 36mm spade router bit for inletting the HW97 action, and there's a 35mm which could work. It will be better than multiple passess with a small bit. Anyway, this might turn onto a build if I can keep the motivation up.

Hey Pauly, I was looking around myself.. Most mentions i see from the UK custom guys are Finnish laminates. So I found these guys:

https://www.lamnia.com/en/sc/178/hunting-and-shooting/laminated-blanks

Ready to go and made for the job... Not to mention pretty colours.
Pricey, yes, but I imagine the finish would be nice and if you are doing the work yourself, it would end up not too bad....
