    Greetings,

    I would appreciate anyone's input regarding the two following rifle stocks by McMillan.

    A-3 Sporter and HTG (M40A1 sniper design).

    I'm building a rifle and can't decide which model to choose as I have no experience with McMillan or alot of experience with long(er) range hunting and shooting. The rifle will sport a #5 Broughton barrel which is similar to a Sendero contour and will be used as a hunting rifle in flat and steep country.

    Thanks for any rifle stock advice you might provide.

    Both of the stock a you are contemplating are great ones. The m40a1 model is similar to the sendero stock, while the A3 has the near vertical pistol grip. Each have their vertues . McMillan stock quality is awesome, and if used as a " drop in" you are fine, but if / when you bed it, it will really shine. You can't go wrong with a MAC, you just have to decide which is better for your need! ( hint, the A3 is tacticool).
    PS, nice barrel choice too!
