Looking for McMillan Edge Feedback

Hi All,

I ordered two stocks from McMillan and would like feedback from anyone with an "Edge Fill" Stock. My main question is about durability and stiffness of this new material. Here's what I ordered:

A1-3 for Phoenix SA(308WIN)
A3 for Surgeon Hunter SA(308WIN)

I am estimating the Edge fill will save about a 1/2 pound over the standard fill: is this accurate?

I've been to McMillan and seen the stocks, but looking for feedback from owners.

Thanks,
Scott

PS. I posted this at Snipershide and didn't get much feedback.

    Scott, I picked one up about a year ago and really like it. It's on a factory 700 BDL in 300 WM and is the Rem Sporter style. The weight savings was actually right at or near 3/4 lb which was perfect for this rifle as it is used for carry/packing. The stock seems very stiff and durable, theres nothing I don't like about it and the weight savings was incredible. It's been pillar/glass bedded and the gun is a one hole gun @ 100 yds. The one thing that was a little hard to get used to was with the weight savings, the balance point change and the gun is now a little tip heavy. Not really a big issue, just different.

    From what I've gleaned from a couple conversations with McMillan is that you will save about a pound on average with the edge fill. I haven't heard of any durability issues, but, they did tell me they won't do an integral or saddle type cheek piece with the edge fill. It's not strong enough for the hardware. So it's obviously not as strong as the regular fill.

    I have been running an Edge A5 for about four years now and love it. No problems.
