Hi there! I found this thread via google, and am actually looking into building basically the same exact custom rifle. Would you mind if I ask you a few questions / get you to validate my plan?

I headed out the local outdoor range today to see how the new stock performs. Drove up there from Henderson and they were not allowing anyone to put targets out because it was too windy. You could still shoot, but could only shoot at the dirt. I didn't waste any ammo.

One thing I have noticed is the rifle cycles better with the new stock. With the Hogue stock, clambering a round could be less than reliable. With the McMillan stock, it seems to be much more consistent. I have to wonder if that is because the McMillan is more rigid than the Hogue.

I have the same rifle! I started out the same way as you but I got a little crazy with my credit card...
I work out at Lake Mead on the AZ side. There is some scenic Jeeping and a lot of desert to shoot in out here.

I started with the Vortex scope and a cheap bi pod.


Replaced the stock, scope, base, rings, bipod and bottom metal


Then I painted it!!!

So, I wasn't sure if I was going to paint the the rest of the rifle and scope. Thought about it for a few days. Went back and forth. In the end, I decided to go ahead.

Good day at the range. and first day out with the McMillan stock. Good group of four at 100 yds....fifth (which was actually the first shot) not so much. Very pleased with the new stock.



Or I could just do this...

Coyote brown Duracoat arrived today and I tested it out on the tripod I painted FDE earlier...looks like tomorrow is arts and crafts day on the 700.

Another good day shooting between 350 and 525 yds. Rifle looks a lot better out in the desert than in my backyard...

Are you going to use it for big game hunting? Or is it too heavy?

Not a hunter

I have been out of action for the past few months. Back in March I discovered the bolt face was cracked at the extractor. After some research I ordered a new bolt from PTG...after all, might as well upgrade. New bolt on the left with Sako extractor and the old bolt on the right.



I took the bolt and rifle to Bentwood Gunsmith to have it fitted and the work they did was excellent...as to be expected based upon the recommendations I received and work done by them in the past.



Then it was time for arts and crafts and time to break out the airbrush







Since the barrel was removed to fit the bolt, I had to go back to the range to rezero. Wasn't too bad and only took a few clicks to get back to zero. Conditions were windy but temperatures were relatively cool. The difference between the stock bolt and the hand fitted PTG bolt was night and day. The action is smooth as silk.
