Not sure really what stock i what to put on it , I like the bell & carlson but i think i what to go with a tech stock and they don't have one that will work with the action i getting . other choise if mine is the a5 from mcmillan. or a thumbhole stock . I gone to use it for a 1000 yard gun for deer probly shoot off of a bipod and sand bag . gone to have to carrey it around .

    check out Tom Manners stocks , their very well made and he offers several style suited for long range.

    His F-class stock is an awsome desgine and stiff as an I-beam , perfect for shooting from a bi-pod at long range and they generaly use Bat actions for , it ain't cheap due to it being all carbon fiber but if you want the best you won't be able to compair ir to much.

    I am putting one of Manners' T-2's on my new coyote rifle. And later this year I am doing a 7 WSM in either his T-2, T-1 or the T-3. I am waiting to try my T-2 before selecting the next one.

    I toured his operation a few days ago. Very impressed. His shells are slightly thicker than McMillan's. The forends give the stiffness we all need for long range accuracy off a bipod.

    FWIW, I ordered my 7 STW with the GAT stock. I've always had better trigger control with a thumbhole stock.
