My richards microfit stock should be here in the next 2 weeks the color is coral reef. Yours looks great and that was one of my choices kinda makes me wonder if I made the right choice now!!!!!!!!!!! My question is how well done was the stock when you recieved it. I've seen a few of these stocks some are good some are bad to the point that my buddie sent his back and the second one wasn't to bad.

6.5wsm

I built a savage 11 into a 6.5wsm last Summer. Let me know what loads you end up with. So far my best groups are using 140g SMKs and 76.5g US869
(COL "2.860)

also had pretty good success with 65.5g H1000 and 66.5g Retumbo and 140 Berger VLDs

when i recived the stock it looked like crap. it too alot of sanding to get all their sanding marks out. i dont think i will go with richards again.

How was the fit. I am wanting to put their Tack Driver stock onto a Savage 12 FVSS 7MM STW. I don't mind sanding for a good finish as long as you don't have to take a lot of wood off.

What about the stock was it that really disappointed you besides the sanding marks?
