    I've got a Rem LTR that is getting reamed out to 22-250AI. Just ordered a Leupold VX6 4-24 for it. Got Accurate Mag bottom metal/dbm setup.
    Just need to find a good stock to upgrade it to now...

    McMillan Game Scout (available now in a color I like)
    McMillan A-3 Sporter
    Manners MCS-EH1

    Are there any other options in this style category that I might check out too?

    The game scout is on my gotta try list. The A3 is a very nice stock also.

    Just got my first Game Scout, don't think I'll need to try anything else!

    Ordered a Greybull to check out in person. We'll see how that goes and whether or not I send it back to upgrade to a McM GS.

    I have a grey bull and a manners t2. The manners is much better in my opinion, like not even in tbe same league. Another benifit to the manners is as I just found this out. I ordered a seder contour and am now ready to step up to a larger cal rifle and wanted to get the heavier contoured barrel to take the length out to 30". I thought my project was stuck but I called manners and they said send the stock in and we will recontour it for free just pay shipping. So you gotta love a company that takes care of your changing situation like that.

    Never thought I would do it, but this is my first chassis. Takes getting used to but looks pretty sick.
    Jury is still out whether it gets morphed into a more traditional hunting stock.

    That said McMillan or Manners get my vote. I think you may want the slight comb height on the A1-3. I have been looking at it also.
