I hear that the slim forend of the McMillan Hunter will pretty well be slammed full if going with a #4. I'd push it back to a #3 if it were mine. If you are wanting to go with a heavier rifle, as it seems that way since you are mentioning a big NF scope and #4 contour, then I would go with something other than the McMillan Hunter. Too many of your parts choices are conflicting in my book.

I agree that the NF will be a tank on a hunting rig, but think the New McM Hunter will do fine on a #4 Rock. I had my Hunter done for a #4 Rock and while it is slim, it seems to have plenty of stock left for a decent look:

*Brux #5 fluted barrel = 1-9" twist, 24" finished length, Kampfeld muzzle brake

*McMillan Rem Hunter stock

*Badger M4 bottom metal, Rem mag box, milled steel follower, & spring

*Jewell trigger tuned to 2.5#

*All metal cera-koted graphite black

*Seekins rings

*NightForce NXS 3.5-15x50 scope
