I have a a McMillan M40A1 (HTG)type Stock which I purchased as the starting point for a long range rifle I am planning. The next step was quotes for rebarrelling a Remington action. I phoned up one well respected Gunsmith in the UK and gave him my spec. His exact words were 'throw the McMillan stock in the bin'. Now maybe this guy knows something that the US marines and lord knows how many millions of civilian shooters don't, but I would appreciate any views from the forum.
