Stock opinions? Ordering soon
I'm in the process of building my first "long range rifle". I have been shooting a heavy barrel Creedmoor a lot, but want more of a hunter. I have ordered a brux #5(.700" at muzzle) 26" 7mm barrel. 1/9. March, maybe.
Plan on short action around a 7mm SAUM, have one in Model seven, light, but want more range. Have a light 6.5 for a "mountain rifle".
Want your opinions on stocks, primarily for hunting. Out to 600 yards in ideal conditions. Will shoot to 1k at times at targets.
What I have looked at:
I thought I decided on the Manners MCS EH-2 or -3(Elite Hunter High Comb)Or the MCS T wider up front, heavier.
Then I looked at The Bell & Carlson M40, Tactical Medalist 4 Series 1000. Has the monte carlo cheekrest, that I like. Simple, I like.
If you have other ideas, I'd like to hear as well
So, to sum up. Remington 700 action, brux #5 barrel, 7mm SAUM. Yes, I thought very much about a Savage action. But am 95% certain on Rem, once I order stock, decision is made. Still need to get action. But used Remington 700's in WSM seem to be around. Rambling now, so time to post.
