What Stock to use?

My new project needs a stock. Here is what it is and you guys can give me your input on what you like.

action is 1.600 dia x 11" long
bbl is 1.345 tapered to .950 at the muzzel 35"
It will be pillar bedded, three screws.
cal .338-408imp

I want the stock to be tactical style, no benchrest.

Ok...i have looked at the McMillan "McHale" &
the Lone Wolf "unlimited" stocks. Any opinions?
Graphite, Kevlar or both? I want it to be light if possible

Total weight of the rifle under 20lbs.

Thanks to all that respond!

Black Diamond 408, Haven't used the McMillian, but own a Lone Wolf. Anything that Bob makes will be first class. Price & weight may be bigger, but his bedding and finishes are first class. I've been to his shop several times, and he is great to work with. He can do anything you want done or modified. Good luck. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

BD408,I echo wapiti13's sentiments. Everything he said is true, in spades. I have a Lone Wolf "Howler" on my 7mm Rem A-bolt and I love it. Bob will treat you really well, he is very customer orientated. If he has something you like, you can't go wrong.

I'd go with a Mcmillan A5. Can't wait to see your final project.
