    I really want to buy this stock but im putting a sendaro contour barrel on my rifle and stockys says the stock is cut for a 9.80 contour at the muzzel. My barrel is 8.30 so im worried that it will look stupid with a huge gap around the barrel. Anyone use this stock with this contour.if so how does it look. Thanks for the help.

    I cant comment on your particular situation but for scale I'm running a factory sporter barrel in a HS stock made for a Sendero contour and it looks fine

    morning, I have the same stock on a 7mmwsm. there is a gap, I have a #4.5 contour on the stock. I changed to this stock because of accuracy. the group tighten up to .40. the stock is very comfortable. I ordered one for my custom 340bee. this rifle has a #7 contour barrel. I have this stock on 6.5mag., 257Bee, and 257AI.

    will u have a small gap depending on the #contour of the barrel yes, torque ur screws as directed. this stock will shoot. I prefer HS stock, is the same quality as McMillian. McMillian is way over priced and very hard to get since the company was bought out.

    accuracy is more important than looks, plus u will very much like this stock.

    enjoy

    I do like the stock and accuracy is important but i also dont want a giant gap thats my only worry. .830 to .980 is a big difference thats my only concern

    Given the heavy barrel/forearm relationship of the combo,, proportionally I think you can get away with the gap without looking too bad. The difference in OD at the muzzle of .150" will give s gap of about .075", a little larger than 1/16".

    Just wanted to explain how I came up with the numbers. You had barrel contours of 8.3(Sendaro) and 9.8. I assumed thst this referenced the standard .83" muzzle OD of the Rrminton Sendaro/varmint barrel and the .98" muzzle OD of the Stockys M24 stock. If the muzzle OD of your rifle is .83" those gap sizes should be very close, depending on the gap that the Stocys uses to accommodate the M24 barrel. You always have the option of taping your barrel to the desired gap and bedding the barrel channel. Its an easy job. If the stock is black you can color the bedding compound.
