    I wouldn't quite put it on par with the McMillan or Manners, but the B&C stock is a good one.

    Can't answer that other than to say that everyone I know that has one of the big magnums has them in an HS, McMillan or Manners.

    The B&C very well might be able to handle it. I've just never seen any big mags in one. Maybe call B&C or Stockys

    I shot one on a 338 ultra mag with a 28" barrel and have not had any issues. I will say it is a tank for weight. It has a full pound + more weight then my HS with adjustable lop and cheek.

    I just got 1 for my mkv Edge from another forum member will let you know how it gose . The weight thing is not realy a problem as weight in a rifle for what we do ain't exactly a problem.
