Kirby was seeing about 1/4MOA vertical when he first put my rifle together. It took him a while to figure out, but the rings where moving a couple thousandths forward and back on the Picattiny rail. So he added 2 more rings, so 2 are at the front of the slots and 2 are at the rear. The 338AM has a bit of a bark, and with that huge muzzle brake, the recoil is a back and forth motion that is tough on scope mounting components. I can't complain, as the recoil is really gentle and with better than 7000lbs of KE at the muzzle, a non-existant recoil is simply amazing.

I've thought about taking it apart and trying to shim it so I could get rid of 2 of the rings (and use them elsewhere), but it shoots so well I can't force myself to touch it

I sure like the look of the mcmillian stocks. But I got to ask what makes them so nice and populer? Are they more acurate, stiffer, tuffer .etc...

Yes, you get what you pay for. I've heard the same good praises for the Manners stock though, in fact any of the hi-dollar tactical stocks are good.

Re: Need Help with McM A-5 Stock Color

Check out the link in my sig here. we have about 75 of the stocks in house right now. we have a mix of lots of color combinations as well as the standard issue camo patterns. all of our's are inletted for either the short or long Rem 700 action.

take a look, you might see one you like and be able to avoid the 6 month or more wait, if nothing else you might see something that gives you a idea

have a good un

I have a Manners stock and I do love it. But it would be nice to have some color in it. Mines flat black, I wished they offered it in more types of gloss colors.
