I had actually considered quite a few from a bell and carlson synthetic, to a boyds laminate, to a custom wood and have finally decided to go with a mcmillan fiberglass with the molded in marble colors. After I get my LOP figgured out I'm ready to put my down payment on the stock. Then it's a wait till they are ready to fit and bed it for me.

Well, if it makes you feel better, I think you made a fine, fine choice... The Mc's are some of the best.

I think you should have one mixed up to match your bowling ball.

Then you should get a bowling ball to math your stock when it's done.

My 7mmWSM is still in the box.

QB...

Just a question, what "percentage" of your hunting occurs where and when snow is on the ground and in the trees?

Just wondering if light gray or even white should be a consideration for you...
