I am building a 338 Lapua with a Surgeon action and trying to decide on a stock to go with. I found the XLR and really like the modular design. I was hoping to see if there are any issues anyone see with this type of design for a hunting/carry LR hunter. I like the fact that I can add a folding stock and other options, yet keep the weight close to a traditional stock with adj cheek. What I found is with removing the bottom metal from the Surgeon action, the weight is virtually the same as a Manners T6A, which was my first choice initially. With the folding option, this gives me a little more mobility for the carry in, I would think. Any input would be appreciated. Specs: Surgeon 1581 XL Krieger 28" #7 Break: Painkiller Jewell or remington trigger XLR HD Chassis or Manners T6A stock 5.5-20 NF Scope Also, would anyone have an XLR in the Houston area that I could take a look at before I buy?
