Dimecovers2: I cannot comment on Lone Wolf stocks except to say that the end users are usually complimentary. I just purchased two McMillan Hunter's edge stocks. Fit and finish are usual Mcmillan quality. I dropped my M-700 .270 into one and the balance and feel is excellent and stock is very stiff. The other stock is going on a M-700 titanium short action. I have not yet decided whether to pillar bed receiver and/or full length bed barrel. If you check on this board under the Long Range Rifle Series, you can review Ian's comments on the Edge stock used on his GA-Lite .300 WSM
. One obvious drawback, McMillan only offers the stock with a 1/2" pad, so if recoil is stiff, you may have to replace pad or endure.
An interesting side note, Ian sent his rifle to McMillan for bedding and they did a full length bedding job on a #3 barrel. Melvin Forbes at Ultra Light Arms is a big fan of full length bedding for the reason that barrel and stock work together to stiffen whole package. He further claims that full length bedding reduces the applitude of barrel vibrations allowing the shooter to shoot virtually all loads to the same point of impact. I would be interested to know if Lone Wolf uses a similar bedding philosophy.
I have a Bansner rifle with his High Tech stock. Nice rifle and good stock, but I prefer McMillan Edge for fit.
