    I was looking into ordering an H-S stock for a model 70 I want to start doing a custom job on. When going to order they ask for the length of pull. How exactly do I get this? I've never done a custom rifle before, and there isn't a gunsmith close by so I figured I'd ask on here. All I have is the factory stocks on all but one of my guns, and the one has a B&C Medalist so I have never had to deal with this. Thanks for the help!

    I have three H-S stocks and have always ordered the standard length of pull which I believe is 13.5". If your factory stocks are working for you, I'd think the standard pull length for the H-S will also. If standard won't work the easiest way to determine your length of pull is to measure the distance from the inside of the elbow to the index finger that is bent to simulate it being on the trigger.
