Nice build as usual Jason.

This stock is larger than the standard A-5L. It was designed to be proportionally correct to accept the Lawton 8000, Stiller TAC 408, Hall, BAT10", and the other larger actions.

Beautiful rifle. Shooting the 350gr SMK's, I would want a 21# stick also.

Nice looking rig. I Know you mentioned the shank at 1.375, what contour and barrel length?

Joel,
you make it to easy when it comes to your stock. I wish some of the drop in stocks were inletted half as good as yours.

I've got a Krieger on order 1.250 for 5.0 then taper to .900 @ 31" so I was curious as I thought your barrel contour might be similar and appears to be except yours is thicker/wider. Thanks for responding it has helped me get a feel for what my barrel contour/shape might look like. Good luck and Enjoy.
