Re: McMillan A5 for 270 AM

Bill,

Ya mean something like this???



This is not a 270 AM but it is an A-5 with a BAT receiver chambered in 338 Lapua. Has the H-S Precision drop box 3 round mag as well.



Not bad for a freshly machined 338 Lapua with the 300 gr SMKs.

Personally I like the cheek piece height as they come even with a 56mm scope. I must have a long face though [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]!!

I am pretty simple in what I like in my rifles so the standard A-5 fills my needs great as is with standard swivel studs, fixed cheek and fixed LOP.

I would focus more on stock weight to properly balance the rifle with that heavy barrel of yours.

Look at this little beauty. This is the basis for the very first Extreme Sporter V-Block rifle from APS. It will be chambered in the 270 AM and shipped to our good friend in Canada to be put to use as a serious whitetail hammer!!



Will be something special I think [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]!!!

Re: McMillan A5 for 270 AM

Nice looking stick in the first pic Kirby!! Nice looking group as well!
The stock in the bottom pic, I think I know who's it is.
If so we chatted a little about it when I was going through the process of parts picking for my 270 AM.

Re: McMillan A5 for 270 AM

Bill...

some thoughts on my part...

after having several A5's and MCM stocks...

I opt out for anything adjustable and I prefer the Stock Pack with additional padding... easily done with old mouse pads and some upholstery glue

not sure how your face is made but for some reason when shooting some of the rifle my cheek bone gets real sore.. and this isn't with a real tight cheek weld either...

I have the Sub min Solutions stock now with the thumb wheel but I'll be afixing a "pad" to the adj. part..

who knows maybe I am made wrong... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

Re: McMillan A5 for 270 AM

Hey kirby, are these stocks painted or is the color melted into the stock?
