JustC

Yahoo maps thinks it's about 135 miles. I'm just North of D.C. about 20 miles.

Dave, shoot me an e-mail or message when you are heading to the beach or just over my way. I'll buy you lunch.

S1, she is a 700 action, but I will talk to the smith about flattening her belly or milling some angles in her. I would suppose the Bedding block would have to be modified in the HS tactical, but the MBR should be no problem to inlet correctly. Thanks for the tips, I'll be looking into them,...post haste.

The smith also makes his own, stiff recoil lug, and the barrel is capped off by a vais break. I guess I'm half way home

A small flat (6mm) at 6 o'clock and a tightly pinned thick recoil lug will help enormously. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Nice stock Dave. I went with the HS also, but in a wider forend (for using a 15" bull bag thrown on the hood or toolbox etc) and the adjustable cheek and LOP. It came in, in place of a mcmillan tactical that was ordered by the smith from a wholesaler, but after finding they didn't even have one, the 5 month wait was out of the question and I will be trying out that HS tactical instead.

We'll see how it works out,....looks like a nice stock though. I like my Sendero stocks, so this one should impress me a little more. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

How do you find that your stock works from the bench,..... in a bag? or in a front rest? Does it ride well?

Thanks

A small rectangular flat indexed at 6 o'clock running parallel to the bore centerline, and planer to the ground when held to fire at 0 inclination. Starting at the recoil lug moving rearward, ending into the clearance space of the front of the mag. well. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
