Long range hunting stock

Hi guys. I am still looking for input on a long range hunting stock. I haven't tried many of the target type or tactical stocks so could really use some help here. I am building a new rifle which will be in the 11 lb. class and will be used for shooting from mostly established positions. It will have a Remington style BAT action, a 28" Kreiger (sendero contour) barrel, and an 8x32x56 Sightron scope. Fire away!........Rich

    Price range? I recently got a used mcm A-5 (would have liked an a-3 but used price was what I could swing) I much prefer the more vertical hand position. I like the mcm A-3, manners t-2 and I haven't had hands on but my smith has been pleasantly surprised with the greybull stocks. If you have a smith you use he should let you handle some of these stocks or go to the range. I have asked guys if I could just get behind their gun to feel the gun, half the time they say hell shoot it too.

    Rich - Give a call to Bobby Hart at R.W. Hart in Nescopeck, PA. They have an assortment that you might find acceptable.

    As Pyro' stated, the vertical pistol grip is awesome, by far my favorite. I'm really liking my Mcmillian A-5, which is pretty versatile for my style of hunting/shooting. The McRee's Precision stock is also great for shooting (AR style grip) but not the best for packing around as it is 100% aluminum & a bit heavy/awkward.

    I have a Manners T-5 thumbhole on order for a 6.5WSM built i've got going on right now, I haven't used one yet, so we'll see.

    Ya, that's what I thought. A little radical, but comfy. I just got off the phone with Greybull and I kind of like what they are doing , especially for the price. It is pretty much an A-3 with the corners all rounded. I may consider that one as well?.........rich
