Re: McMillan EOL Outdoorsman Long Range Rifle
Hope your folks get better quickly LTLR.
My question is "Why that stock?" I'm not sure I agree with the stock choice and I'm open to new ideas (or old as it may be), but why not the A3 Sporter or the A5, or something? Why that one, for this purpose? Nostalgia?
My thinking is: hunting, or at least shooting in the field is best served from certain specific positions, spec'd out by those that do it for a living- specifically the guys in our wonderful military as snipers, special ops guys, etc. Stocks have evolved to suit them, why wouldn't the same specs suit us as hunters in the same areas? This might not be the place for that discussion, but I like the idea of the A3 sporter and may try one soon, but I'm torn between that and a Manners T-2 as it can be had at 2.6lbs and it has the vertical grip I am infatuated with.
So, it may be rhetorical, but I wonder, why "that" stock on a long range model, and this from a stock making company... Is my thinking flawed here, and is this stock design the best design for long range hunting? No offence or negativity intended, I'm just wondering why that design, specifically the trigger hand grip, was chosen.
