Gray McMillan Marble Stock Color Photo Gallery

The photo gallery below has McMillan stock pictures that are primarily gray or strictly black & white.  These represent some of the most popular stock colors for a McMillan marble finish. Grey stocks especially good with stainless steel actions & barrels.

Green, Blue, & Turquoise McMillan Marble Stock Color Photo Gallery

This photo gallery contains McMillan stock pictures that are primarily green, blue or turquoise.  The green stocks included in this gallery are all primarily a “true green”, but there is another photo gallery for olive stocks.  There is some similarity, but the olive stocks were grouped with the more subdued, earth-tones like tan and brown.  These McMillan stocks are all brighter colors, and very popular among benchrest and competition shooters.  They are more wild and unusual and can really make your rifle stand out. I’ve created several other photo galleries for other colors and also for McMillan’s camo & flame stock patterns as ...

Grape, Purple & Pink McMillan Marble Stock Color Photo Gallery

This photo gallery has all of the Grape, Purple & Pink McMillan stock pictures.  Although these are typically seen as a little more girly … I have to admit some of them look pretty sharp.  These colors will definitely give your rifle a look that is unique to you, and might even convince your girlfriend to go shoot with you.  I’m not sure if that is a blessing or a curse … but maybe it’s an excuse to buy another gun? I’ve created several other photo galleries for other colors and also for McMillan’s camo & flame stock patterns as ...

AI Stock Shootout: AX vs AICS vs AICS with Viperskins

My custom target/hunting 7mm Rem Mag has a McMillan A3-5 stock on it, but I’m also a fan of the Accuracy International stocks and have been considering building my next rifle on one of their chassis.  These are very popular upgrades for Remington 700 rifles.  With the recent release of their AX platform, along with the new skins available for the Accuracy International Chassis System (AICS) platform … there are a lot of options. One major benefit of an Accuracy International stock is it’s folding option.  Precision rifles can get pretty long, especially with a can.  I actually had a hard ...

Detachable Magazine Dimensions & Max COAL

The table below contains the maximum Cartridge Overall Length (COAL) for popular detachable magazines for rifles.  This is important to consider when picking a rifle cartridge to ensure you have enough clearance to “chase the lands”, which just means as your chamber throat begins to naturally erode from use you seat your bullet further and further out so that it maintains the same relative position with the rifle lands.  Many people start with their COAL almost maxed out in their magazine, and as their chamber throat starts to wear they are forced to choose between loss of accuracy from not ...
