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.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.

Re: mcmillian or rimrock?

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.

Re: mcmillian or rimrock?

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.
