Re: Fitting a Rem 700 in a McMillan A-5

Thrusty,

Here are some pictures to compare. Brand new McMillan A5, R700 SPS-T AAC-SD as well. Your cheekpiece cutout is indeed off-center. My stock too has little pieces of missing fiberglass in a few places. The action appears to center itself nicely, I am also using a Badger DBM. I haven't shot it yet, just mounted the scope today, but if I have anything related to torque specifics, I will let you know.

Thanks bartlettjw... unfortunately, you confirmed my suspicions.

Regardless, my barreled action and new A-5 has been at McMillan's since 7/30/12.

Haven't heard back from Kelly yet...but, I have faith he will make it right. Just hope it's not another 4-month wait - still plenty of shootin' left before winter.

Re: Fitting a Rem 700 in a McMillan A-5

Just wanted to make an update...

I received my gun and A-5 back from McMillan on 8/16/12.

Fit of the barreled action looks dead center and perfect now. I'm assuming that McM re-inletted it for my receiver (correctly this time).

The bolt removal inlet on the cheekpiece was left alone...it's an easy fix that I can do If I need....I'm not worried about it as it doesn't affect the gun's function.

The imperfections on the molded stock are typical...again, I'm not worried about it.

Took the gun to the range and it shoots better than it ever did. Just about anything you stick down the pipe shoots sub-MOA at 100yrds.
Fed 168 GM, 155 Scenars, 167 Scenars, 168 A-Max, 175 SMKs...they all work great. First time I ever had to use a caliper on all of my load development to figure out which one was best.

Thanks Kelly for your great customer service in resolving my problem. I love the stock.
