Re: stocks for lr hunting

It depends on your budget. Of course, the high end ones are well liked. If you don't mind the god-awful looks of an AI, they get good reviews. Manners and Mcmillan are hard to beat. Grey Bull is very good for the money, and B&C is what I use. The Choate is probably on the bottom of my list. Very clubby, but some like them. Try to find some examples to try for fit, that is the best way.

Your question mentions long range HUNTING. So on that note if your hunting more than shooting I really like the mcmillan game scout and A3 sporter. And if less than a 300 WM you could get edge fill to reduce overall weight of the package. The game scout for more hiking and mountain hunting while still needing to take a longer shot and if more stand hunting or prone shooting at long range the A3 sporter would be the way to go. The greybull is the same concept but built for a heavy barrel while the mcmillans can be had in standard hunting contours and many action inlets.

I am also in the middle of putting together a rifle and the game scout is going to be the stock. It will be a mountain hunting rifle but I want to be comfortable taking longer shots. So Im giving the game scout a try in edge fill.

Me too on the fill and I may add a 2 ounce DE adjustable cheekpiece.

If I like it I may switch to it for my rifle business.
