    whats your plan wildman?

    I was going to build up a barnard 7mm for fclass/the works, but at this stage a Howa, heavish rebarrel after burn out and a manners stock looks to be the ticket.

    Manners MCS-SL they're about $500AUD from LightForce/APRS

    I want one but can't afford it. That's why I'm going to buy Gordy's Wild Dog off him once his McMillan arrives.

    I am in the same boat for my howa 7mm08. Was Thinking High tech, but Gordy scared me off them, then looked at Boyds, but I want a composite/glass/NOT WOOD stock. The manners might be a decent option. The Hightech Specialties Stock was USD$307 shipped, so not a bad price, but apparently not very good quality, and prone to breaking.

    Gordy has decided to keep the Wild Dog stock so I am in the same boat now. My two options are HiTech Specialties or a B & C Carbelite. B & C is $349 from DED.

    Not sure which one to choose?
