I also have the hogue stock and like the way it feels. I have a 20" barrel in it and have it bedded to the balance point. after that its freefloated. i had to melt back some of the rubber to get it to not touch the stock at all but it shoots good for me now. I am howver thinking of either scratchbuilding a fiberglass stock or the bell and carlson. I cant afford the mcmillin. i have never made a stock before so im either asking for trouble or will have a nice project.
