    Does anyone have any experience putting a Proof Sendero Light barrel in a McMillan Rem Hunter stock? I have a 7mm Mag currently on a Borden action with a 4.5 contoured Hart barrel and I would like to rebarrel this rifle to a 28 Nosler with a Proof tube. McMillan said #5 maybe #5.5 contour is the largest BUT they have some that are inletted to Rem Varm/Sendero contour I’ve seen online plus there are several smiths out there that advertise these stocks to fit a Sendero Light. Thanks for the comments...

    I have a 7RM with a 26" Proof Sendero Light barrel in a McMillan Remington Hunter stock, McMillan says up to a #8 contour.
    I've attached a picture of my rifle so you can see what it looks like.

    20180707_143003.jpg McMillan also make a McMillan Hunter stock with a slimmer fore end and they say up to a #4 contour for that stock.

    Are you taking of the hunters edge stock, or a Remington hunter "edge fill" stock? They're two different types. The "rem hunter edge fill" will take a larger barrel than the hunters edge. Personally I'd look at the game hunter, designed for the sendero contour, high cheek weld, and comfortable.

    You should be able to get that to fit the sendero light nicely.

    I was able to fit a Sendero Light into a Game Scout, Edge Fill which shares the same barrel contour size as the McM Hunter.
