I'd like to run a Poll on the above question. In this thread I'll listen to general answers from you and then I'll select finalists to utilize in an actual Poll. Same thing I did a couple years ago for "cartridge selection for your next long range rifle" which has been voted on by 3,611 members -- so far.

So, which style of stock for your next long range hunting rifle?

Let's use McMillan's styles as a reference point since more of us are familiar with them than any other manufacturer.

Click on the category links below to see individual styles. Again, just trying to get an idea of style. Other manufacturers sell similar styles but it's easier if we use one manufacturer's styles as a reference point.

Tactical styles

Hunting and sport

Ultralight

    Hunting Style, The Lazeroni Thumbhle sporter.

    I have one of these on my 300 win. The fit is great, the cheek weld is high, felt recoil is lessened, and they are a very light stock. It is very adaptable to field conditions and easy to fall into a consistant hold.

    I'm a big fan of the less tactical stocks. I went the A5/McHALE
    Route for a while and while good just didn't suit me. I now use
    A McMillian classic, manners mcst and an HS prescsion. More
    Traditional.

    M 40 a2 for me.

    Just received my first m40 a 2 style stock and love the ergonomics of it. Have previously shot a-2's and a-5s and they were great as well but the m40 adds a little versatility.

    Started the long range game because the shots that were presented to me were always 3-600 yards. After several years and lots of practice my abilities finally reached consistent long range, and the last 3 shots presented to me have been offhand under 80. Reminded me that Long range is just another tool and I still have to be prepared to harvest the closer ones as well, and the a2 is a lot easier for me to shoot offhand.
