    As many of you know I am an avid big game hunter out in AZ. I getting ready to have a custom rifle built and am going to start with a McMillan stock. What all you do you guys recommend? This will be a HUNTING rifle.

    Thanks

    What action are you going to use ??? if its a 700 and you want light go with the edge and if you dont mind the extra 10oz the classic or mountain rifle stocks are nice .

    It's a Model 700 chambered in 300 Win. The barrel will be a M24 contour...fluted of course.

    What about an A3 with the adjustable cheek piece? I really like the look of that stock.

    +1 on the A-3....might not need the adjustable cheek if you are using up to a 50mm scope.

    You can't beat the M40A1/HTG especially with the heavy barrel, the regular hunting stocks won't work with much more than a #5 contour.
    Here's a pic of my 308 with the M40A1/HTG, it has a 24" heavily fluted M40 contour barrel.

    Check out the Rem varmint. I think it's the same as the Sako varmint. I have one on a hvy bbl Howa and it is very comfortable, from all positions, not just prone.

    I´d go with an A3, maybe the lighter version; or take a look at Manners Thumbhole, or the lightest version of their tactical stock

    I am putting together a 300 WM with a fluted Krieger #6 taper on a Predator action and a Mcmillan Rem Hunter. Sort of a tweener for hunting.

    Is there going to be a mcmillan that is better for a dedicated hunting rig than the HTG? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif
