I might have to mill out some of it if I get one, the barltein HV is bigger than .850.

I know brother in law, trying to keep this build in the moderate range. The build is for my son (12) that has been shooting my guns as he has lost interest in his factory setup, he's been shooting mid range (600yds) with a couple of mine. Time to get him is own. Its going to be .243 on a rem700 with a bartlein barrel, looking at about $1500 for the build without the optic which I have already.

I have a Kremlin and their Krux. Both are well built and I like their designs.

Spg sorry I measured hurriedly and must have moved the calipers. I checked near the end of the stock fore end and it measured.950
I cannot get a good measurement at the chamber end due to scope objectives too close and too big but itís a HV contour going from memory.

I couldnít disagree more with BILís comment but really not sure what he means by it? Thatís like saying donít buy a Ford there are better choices?
I have several McMiillan/ Manners/ stocks and have owned HS and Stockyís too and the Iotaís are well made and well designed stocks made right here in Texas.

DStroud, not to worry, a little milling if needed wont be a problem. I too have different stocks, they are all pretty much the same except for my manners, its noticeably stiffer than all of the rest.

Spg, We can do just about any contour you want. Call us at 9792294664 on Monday and ask for Austin he can walk you through the barrel channel and stocks. I am pretty confident we have what you are looking for in stock.

Wow you certainly have a lot to offer on this topic. Obviously you have never handled this stock. I will say it's on the same level as any of my McMillians I own. It's a quality stock and priced at market value of other similar stocks.

Apologies in advance if this more info than you wanted.

There are some difference between the McMillan say the GameScout and the Iota Kremlin which are similar in style.
I have two of each sitting here in front of me. The Iota is a little beefier / larger in the stock portion(where your cheek rests) and it has a wider flatter fore end which rides a bag better IMO than the McMillan but if you use bipod mostly thatís no big deal. As far as quality both are similar but McMillan does have more styles and can be built for more brands of actions.
You have to pay extra on the McMillan to get the Limbsaver recoil pad that comes standard on the Kremlin.
A plus for some on the McMillan is they have a textured palm swell and fore end while on the Kremlin itís smooth.
Priced out with equal accessories McMillan 562.00 Iota 529.00
McMillan 6 months to get one built in your favorite colors and Iota about 1 month.

McMillan has been making stocks for 44 years starting in 1973 making Benchrest stocks based in Arizona

Iota while a newer company itís parent Kaspar Companies based in Shiner Texas started in 1898 so they been around a while.
Point being Iota is not some little outfit thatís here today gone tomorrow.


Not sure how much range/hunting time BIL has spent handling the Kremlin but I shoot both the above described stocks every week and I donít see this glaring difference he is inferring.
