How would one get with the stock maker?
Roy -

I believe the stock is made by Robertson Composites, who also makes composite stocks for Master Class, etc. Unsurprisingly, they call it the 'Interceptor'.

Here's a link: Robertson Composites Inc. - Composite Rifle Stocks

    hi if your looking for an allrounder stock this is it
    the only thing i regret is that i didnt get in a nice marbled colour
    robertson makes these stocks they are extremly firm and are realy comfortable also i would advise a thumscrew rather than an allen key as this speeds things up as bolt can only be removed when cheekpiece is fully down thanks again

    Re: RPA interceptor

    Yesterday,
    I had a phonecall with a RPA dealer in the UK.
    The interceptor isn't available in 260 Rem as a standard gun. In 260 it is considered a custom gun adding about 1000 to the gun :confused:
    That's not an option at the moment. So I think I am only going to buy the action and start building a gun arround it. Probably with the aics stock.


    I to was a bit worried about the short neck BRX, but case preparing and reloading is so simple with it. I just neckturn the required distance on the neck and fireforn it with 30 grains Varget. It's that simple and the fireform
    loads shoot really well. Sizing can be done with standard BR dies although I also have bought a custom Hornady sizer die.(cheap and excellent)
    Only minor thing for me is. You have to careully select the freebore on your reamer. Mine is setup for 105 Bergers but works very well with Sierra and Lapua match bullets. The Hornady 105 Amax sits to low in the neck.
    The boat tail is below the neck shoulder junction, but it shoots very tiny groups that way.....
    In the long run I don't think neck lenth is going to be an isue.
