Re: B@C A-5 stock......Good or bad

Don't know about manners, but my mcmillans have to be pillared and bedded by my smith. They don't have the alum. bedding like my B&C medalist. The medalist I have is still skim bedded though. Manners has a pretty nice stock out for 2010 you might want to check out. Oh by the way I have never got my mcmillan stocks in 4 months more like 6 months.

They are all good stocks. I like the looks and feel of my Mcmillan better. It comes down to what you like the best.

    if you've got a remington action or clone, Gene Sears supply carries inventory of mcmillan stocks. If you buy through their retail site, you can get flat rate shipping just $4.95.

    I have stocks made by McMillan, H-S Precision, High Tech Specialties and Bell and Carlson. Here is how I grade them. McMillan A+, H-S A, High Tech B and B&C are easily A-. I look first at B&C first now because I like them so well. A little heavy but very stout. If ordered through rifle-accuracy.com you can get them installed with mercury recoil reducers if you shoot bangers. I usually order when I start ordering componenets for build and have always received them in plenty of time for assembly. One bit of advice for stocks with bedding blocks- SKIM BED

    I'm interested in why you say to skim bed. I know some others say the same thing and some say just bed the recoil lug. I'm heistant about skim bedding my Sendero HS stocks because I've read it might flake up? What product do you use to skim bed yours?

    Hope this isn't too far off topic Rich
