Long Range Stocks

I'm in the beginning stages of building a LR rifle based on a 700 Long Action. Originally the action is from a CDL in 7RUM, which burned out at about 500 rounds. I have a B&C Medalist that I'm not real fond of, seems like the actions doesn't fit as snugly as I'd like. Question: What stocks do you like, and why? Carlock uses H-S Precision, and I've been looking at McMillian as well.

Re: Long Range Stocks

Going through the same process as you as we speak - I am really leaning towards Greybull Precision's stock which I understand is made by B&C. With that said - even though I like everything I've heard about them, I have not had a chance to use one let alone see one. Nothing wrong with the others you mentioned - it just bowls down to preference.

Re: Long Range Stocks

HS is certainly nice. McMillan speaks for itself! Manners is very nice, the MCS-TA and T is truly excellent. I would say any one of these 3 would more than get you started! These days, there are many Really Good stock makers, I am sure that somebody will chime in with others that I have missed.

Have a good one,
Gary

Re: Long Range Stocks

If I wanted to keep the cost low then HS they are very good stocks. I feel for me they need a cheek riser installed when using base with any MOA built in.

My choice if I was building another gun would be Manners. I have one now at its great, turn around time was super fast and it cost less than the McMillan and I here they are stronger too.

Re: Long Range Stocks

Stocky's makes a nice laminate for the Remingtons that is very similar to the A-5 McMillan. It comes with an aluminum bedding block. Even has a decelerator pad. It is called the Bobby Hart long range target/tactical. The cheek is high enough for a picatinny rail and 50 mm scope. It will accomodate a heavy varmint taper barrel. It is on sale till 1/31/11 for just under $300.

I have one with the glossy finish and it was nicely done. I get the wow comments frequently.

*NEW!* Bobby Hart AccuBlock Long Range Target / Tactical

Here is my rifle with its 30 BR barrel. It will soon be a switch barrel with the second barrel a 31" bartlein in 6mm-284.

Re: Long Range Stocks

Everyone has mentioned a lot of good stocks.

Mcmillian and Manners are the top Two if you want composite, followed by HS and then B&C. I have a B&C on one gun, does it work? Yes, but I find it to be two felexible when shooting of a Bi-Pod.

If you want something Different that stands out form the crowd, look no futher than Joel Russo. Not only is his stuff TOP NOTCH! He is one hell of a guy to deal with. He says what he is going to do when he is going to do it, unlike most in the gun business.

His Laminate A5 is a exact copy of the Mcmillian A5. I now have three of them because they are that good. When some people say a 95% inlett run enless you like woodworking. Joels are 100% drop in.

He is active on this sight, so if you would like to talk with him, send him a message or look at his website. Home_Page

I might sound Bias, but his stuff is great and will be ordering more to replace a B&C.

Here is a couple pics of his work.




Oh, if you want something even nicer, he can help you out with this as well! He helped me put this together for my dad.
