I am planning a long range hunting rifle on a custom long action (rem clone or not hasn't been decided yet) and I am trying to keep the weight down while still having a significant barrel. At the moment I am trying to pick a top quality stock that is both light enough and strong enough to suit my purposes. Top contenders so far are the McMillan A4, Manners T4, and possibly HS Pro Varmint/Tactical. All are "tactical" vertical grips which is what I want for this rifle, and all weigh in around 2.5-3lbs WITHOUT the optional cheek rests and length of pull adjustments (which increase the weight 1.5 to 2 lbs) Are there any other stocks out there that I should be considering? Anything more economical? or lighter? ALSO - a big Thanks to everyone who has been responding to my questions, I know there have been a lot of them . . . . this is my first custom rifle, and I really want to make it a dream to shoot.
