Will do! As fast as I can get to my shooting bench I'll be posting pics of how well she'll shoot. Looks like that's Monday

Re: McMillan stock

McMillan's are expensive and it sometimes takes a while to get them. I have an A3 on a 260 that I had to wait and wait for. To me they are worth the wait. In my opinion it is the Cadillac of stocks, by far the best available. I have a number of others but the McMillan is my favorite. They do cost more though and you have to consider that.

Kirby Allen did a superb job building the rifle. We selected excellent components and the workmanship was outstanding. Results is a rifle that I am very proud of and love to shoot.

Re: McMillan stock

Well it took me longer to get to my range than I expected even though it is practically in my back yard. I did finally shoot yesterday to break in the barrel and so far it's looking good. Im pretty sure I already know what load the rifle will like but I made up a few extras just to make sure. I'll be posting pics of the new rifle as well as how she shoots when I get back.

Re: McMillan stock

Well I have found the load for my rifle and gotta say couldnt be happier with it. Completely worth the wait. I attached some pics of the rifle and how it shoots. The target group is including the fouler round wich is the top left hole touching the group. Amazingly, including the fouler round the group is .670. If i subtract the .338 caliber to go center to center thats a .332 group. I think Ill take that. Ha. Lastly, I am determined to put a nightforce on it but the burris XTR was a free x-mas gift and I figured it can hold me over while I put some money away, but it seems to be doing pretty good. We will see.

Re: McMillan stock

Looks like it's coming along and will be a performer!
I talked with my gunsmith last night about a new rifle and he sugested we build a 338 Norma. (By we I mean that he would build it and I would pay). I too would use the McMillan A-5 for a stock. I have a couple H-S and really like them, but hear the McMillan is the way to go. I will also will have a long wait. 1 year, roughly. But the wait always seams to be worth it as i imagine yours was.
Nice rifle and happy shooting!

I just received my HS Precission Stock & yes it also took 6 months to get. I am told all the people in the gun business are going full out. My rifle is now off getting Cerakoate on the metal. I can't wait to get together.
