check out Tom Manners stocks , their very well made and he offers several style suited for long range.

His F-class stock is an awsome desgine and stiff as an I-beam , perfect for shooting from a bi-pod at long range and they generaly use Bat actions for , it ain't cheap due to it being all carbon fiber but if you want the best you won't be able to compair ir to much.

Re: Need your thoughts on stock

I am putting one of Manners' T-2's on my new coyote rifle. And later this year I am doing a 7 WSM in either his T-2, T-1 or the T-3. I am waiting to try my T-2 before selecting the next one.

I toured his operation a few days ago. Very impressed. His shells are slightly thicker than McMillan's. The forends give the stiffness we all need for long range accuracy off a bipod.

FWIW, I ordered my 7 STW with the GAT stock. I've always had better trigger control with a thumbhole stock.
