30-06. I have always felt one of the Classic Fwt's in SS would make about the perfect all around hunting rifle. I like the new FN rifles well enough, but just trust and prefer the older style trigger more.

I found this rifle still NIB at a gunshow in May. I believe it was probably made around 1999-2000 and it still had the hang tags on it. Got it for $700 OTD.

When I got home I looked on McMillan's Specials page and found this stock. I wouldn't have ordered this, but I could get it "right now" and it was $475 shipped. Now that I have it and see how it looks on the gun It has grown on me. Since taking the photo's I've upgraded the scope to a Leupold 2.5-8X36. It weighs 7.5 lbs as it sits.

On the first range trip I fired 2 shots to get it on paper at 50 yards. This is shots #3,4,and 5 fired at 100 yards.

rj308...good comparison pics

The 2nd picture I asked for the same finish as McMillan's EOL rifles. Olive, with black and tan speckletone.

The other rifle is the McMillan SCI Phoenix raffle rifle. I asked the colors of the SCI rifle stock and was told they were the olive, with tan and black speckltone.

The SCI stock appears a lighter olive than mine. Sure is a nice looking rifle!

Oldguns, the hardcase and rifle is McMillan's picture. Just using their picture for a comparison. Sorry, I don't know which hardcase that is.

I'm going to order another Speckletone stock soon. I think if I go with a 2 color speckletone, leave out the black speckle, should look more like the McMillan stock.

I got tired of looking at the bad photos of my Grey with Black Specs, so I asked my wife to take a good photo:

Thanks for the pics guys.

I ordered the Winchester Hunter Edge in brown with black specks and red pad for my 300 H&H, and a Rem MR Edge in gray with black specks for my Mtn Guide 7-08. Looking forward to 4 months from now!

Just received my Rem Hunter Stock in Olive green with black/tan specs. When I move slightly away from stock...I see NO specs...stock looks flat green(which is ok). I do have tired /old eyes. You may see different. For contrast you might want to go with grey with black specs or light tan with black specs. Sorry fo NO pics..NOT computer/pic savy. Hope this helps with your choice.
