    Vertical pistol grip?

    Hi all,

    Currently gathering the parts for a 26" 7mm magnum build & can't decide on the stock. It's for a big country rifle that'll be carried a lot, shot mostly prone but occasionally from a standing snap shot.

    Tossing up between a McMillan Hunters Edge (700g) and a McMillan Game Scout (800g with Edge fill). The only real difference being the vertical pistol grip, forend is the same.

    Who's using them?

    Advantages?
    Obviously, pretty comfortable from the prone. What else...

    Disadvantages?
    Does it hit you in the kidneys when its slung over your shoulder? Slower for snap shots? More bulky? Anything else...


    Thanks in advance. Putting a fair wedge of cash into this so want to get it right the first time.

    Cheers.

    Track one down of each and fondle it. It's the only way is you will know which one will work or if it won't. I have a HSP vertical and a standard, and the standard would be the better field stock. The vertical is a much fatter grip but feels more comfortable under recoil. They aren't macs so no idea how much difference to the hsp's they are...
