That McMillan A-5 is a sweet stock and is worth every dime you would spend on it. Shot a few rifles with one and man oh man. If I could afford on I would get one.
I have found that IMR powders while good provide a lot more fouling than other Hodgdon powders. Might give a loooksee at the Allient RL 19, 22, or 25 for your app as well. I had good luck with RL15 in my 308 and I got some RL10X for my 223.
Here go check out some of these rifles
. They are mostly bench guns but they can offer some different ideas.
Krieger talked up the 210 grain bullet quite favorably. They claimed that their employees that shoot long range have been playing with the 210 grain and have been seeing remarkable results at 1000 yards. Right now I'm pulling my hair nearly out trying to decide what detachable magazine bottom metal I should use. Have any suggestions? I think I'll also start a new thread on this bottom metal query.
