    Has anyone used a McMillan Hunter with a #4 barrel? If so, would you mind posting some pics, especially of the top view of the forend with the barrel in it. I would really like to go with this stock, but am concerned with getting "knife edges" on the top of the forend. I know the Remington Hunter will work, but am just as concerned with how small a #4 will look in that beefy forend.

    Thanks,

    John

    I am not familiar with a #4 barrel, can you post the dimensions or a link with dimensions? Is it the same as a Shilen #4 contour?

    I don't know if my build fits what you are looking for? I just had a 243ai put together with a Shilen Sendero contour barrel in a McM hunter stock. Send me your email if you want pictures of it.
