    Going to build a 24" 270wsm,stiller predator with a #3bartlein{which is equivalent to a # 4 kreiger} The bartlein barrel should end up being .685 at the muzzle when finished. What mcmillan would you go with for hunting? I dont want the stock to look huge, but not small either. mid-range size. so hard to tell from mcmillan web-site.

    I like the HTG(M40A1) for an all around hunting stock.

    I like raised combs, I find most factory rifles are about 1/4" to 1/2" to low to get good check weld/eye to scope alignment.

    A similar option to the M40A1 is their "Remington Hunter" in their field/hunting line
