McMillan Stock....help me pick

As many of you know I am an avid big game hunter out in AZ. I getting ready to have a custom rifle built and am going to start with a McMillan stock. What all you do you guys recommend? This will be a HUNTING rifle.

Thanks

What action are you going to use ??? if its a 700 and you want light go with the edge and if you dont mind the extra 10oz the classic or mountain rifle stocks are nice .

It's a Model 700 chambered in 300 Win. The barrel will be a M24 contour...fluted of course.

What about an A3 with the adjustable cheek piece? I really like the look of that stock.

+1 on the A-3....might not need the adjustable cheek if you are using up to a 50mm scope.

You can't beat the M40A1/HTG especially with the heavy barrel, the regular hunting stocks won't work with much more than a #5 contour.
Here's a pic of my 308 with the M40A1/HTG, it has a 24" heavily fluted M40 contour barrel.

Check out the Rem varmint. I think it's the same as the Sako varmint. I have one on a hvy bbl Howa and it is very comfortable, from all positions, not just prone.
