Re: Bell & Carlson VS. McMillian

I think Bell and Carlsons offer tremendous value. I have shoot both and own a B&C. I prefer the grip on the B&C over the McMillan. However I find McMillans to have a Superior forend design. Both stocks are rigid and robust. If it were my rifle and my money I would get the B&C.

Re: Bell & Carlson VS. McMillian

I own both and I think they are both good stocks. You can add a aftermarket cheek piece to you B&C for $75 more. If waiting for a Mcmillan is the problem Third Generation has some on hand you can get. They are A5's and cost alittle more but the are awesome stocks.

here is a picture of a B&C with a saddle cheek piece

The Mcmillians are such an awesome stock that they are hard to compare to a B&C. Although the B&C do offer alot for the price, in reality it is not that much more to get a McMillian, but it is a crazy wait.

How do you figure? My B&C cost about $250, last I looked an A5 was running $500 plus. That is price increase of 100%

$250 extra on your $1500 rifle is not that much really. I'm just saying it is money well spent.
