Kind of looks like a Stippling,,I like the stock it looks more like wood I have a Savage Sillouette that has a Similar pattern,,Enjoy
Shot my McMillan-stocked Model 70 .375 H&H for the first time today since getting it back. First 3 shots (Hornday 270 gr. Superformance FL @ 2,780 fps chrono'd) landed in .80" @100 yds. Again, bedding work was done by Brad at Phoenix Custom Rifles, and I can't recommend him/them highly enough. McMillan shipped direct to them and Brad installed oversized, 5/8" pillars and bedded full length, due to the forward recoil lug. Also installed a solid carbon fiber rear "cross bolt".

Thanks, Marvin. Couldn't be happier with the end result.I am always in the market for another rifle in my safe. I like what you have done even though the factory stock looks good. Winchester has always done a great job with what they make. The more I look at that McMillan stock, the more I like it. Thanks for showing. Marvin
Glad to hear you had the same experience with PCR! I wouldn't use the Hornady if I take the rig to Africa; I just purchased 3 boxes of the Superformance ammo with the rifle for break in, etc.Nice looking rig. There are no better stocks than those made by McMillan. I have 5 of them and they are both indestructible and impervious to weather.
I've also done some business with the guys at PCR and they are great guys to do business with.
I was personally less than pleased with the performance of the 270gr in the .375 Ruger. It killed everything stone dead but the bullets broke apart and didn't track true all the way through. They shot very well for me though so putting them in the right spot was no issue.
If I shoot factory Hornady next time around I'll probably shoot the 260gr Interbond. Expansion with them is usually about the same as the Interlock but I've never had a problem with the separating on me. The only big/tough game I've shot with the .375 shooting the interbond is one very large boar. He was running away and my shot split his pelvis and the bullet was found intact in the sheild of the left shoulder. I'd be confident using it in Africa on the next trip.
I could not get the DGX 300gr to group well with the suppressor but it is just fine without it and so for buffalo or anything else dangerous I'll keep a box of them in the gun case as well.
Believe it or not they sell for just 300.00 and there's no licensing or restrictions. Of course getting a firearms permit at all there is about as difficult as getting approved for class 3 items in the US.That is very cool! I have several cans but nothing over .308". Great pics!
