H-S or McMillan

I talked to Ilene at Mc Millan about a stock for my SPS Rem. 700 in 300 Win Mag.....I explained to her my needs and she proceeded to tell me that I probably already have a McMillan stock on my rifle and that I would just be paying for the same thing if I bought another?????

I then called H-S Precision and talked to Dan.....he was very helpful and literally sold me a stock.

Are both the stocks great quality? The H-S stocks are $100+ cheaper.

What do you guys recommend?

Thanks

Re: H-S or McMillan

everything I have heard says that mcmillan's are the best. HS are good also, just not as much as the mc's.

kind of like nightforce vs leupold, nightforce's are better, but leupold will get the job done just as well in most cases.

Re: H-S or McMillan

A mcmillan stock on an SPS ? highly unlikely.
To my knowledge mcmillan doesn't make a line of cheap/inexpensive type stocks.
I have two hs precision stocks -one is a thumbhole and i like both real well.They look good and fit great the bdl bottom metal/trigger/action all fit very precisely.
That's my only expierence and i've heard nothing but good about mcmillans so take your pick.

Re: H-S or McMillan

Hs makes the sendero stock and the Pss stock. I've dealt with both and like them. Not real keep on the palm swell of the pss. Never realy dealt with a mcmillan thoug.

Re: H-S or McMillan

I have no experience with HS. I did order a McMillan and was very pleased with the stock. I also had them bed my barreled action and it was flawless. Only negative, wait time was approx a month longer than expected. It was worth the wait.

Re: H-S or McMillan

I don't know of any factory Remington that ever came with a McMillan stock.

I like the McMillan A3 and A5 stocks and a couiple other desgines but I also like the HS stocks in the PSS style.
It realy boils down to what desgine you want , both are very well made and usualy make a good adition to any custom gun.

Re: H-S or McMillan

I have a HS on my Sendero FSII, other than an overly bulky palm swell the quality is excellent.

McMillan seem to make excellent stocks also, I suppose it will be like comparing aples to oranges in the end.
McMillan do tend to have long lead times at present however

Have you looked at Manners rifles stocks, the thumbhole tactical is a very useful design. www.mannersstocks.com). Lead time is in weeks for these stocks, definitely worth a look.
