Mine does the job on my .17 HMR, but I haven't had it long.

Why does the propellor have to be in front? Put the prop on the trailing edge of the vane.

Question VQ Stock Replacement

My VQ stock is not really a benchrest stock. I want a wide fore-end and very little slope on the underside of the butt where it rides on the rear bag. A pistol grip or thumbhole would be nice too.
