    I've only got one rimrock was before Borden got the company pretty nice stock but have more McMillians like there molded in colors. Don't think you would go wrong with either.

    I have owned about 5 McMillan's and only one Rimrock (current Borden era). I think the Rimrock is good, but would probably go for the McMillan in preference. I have always had good dealings with McMillan - in fact will order a 6th stock off them in the next few months.

    As a general comment, I have had very mixed success in my dealings with many diverse stock makers, but either of the options you list will work very well compared to a lot of other options on the market.

    Ditto on the mcmillans. I have a rimrock and it is a great,..and VERY light stock. But given a choice on new stocks,..mcmillan gets the nod fromme as well.
