My .375 barreled action arrived last month. I planned to drop it in the McM Classic I had on hand, but the one I have is a BDL. After thinking about it, I really wanted a blind mag on this rifle. A buddy ordered up a few Rimrock ADL stock blanks (unfinished), so I figured I try one.
The Rimrock stock needed a fair amount of work. I needed to do quite a bit of sanding, bed it, fit a recoil pad (Limbsaver) and paint it. I've been putzing with it for the last couple of weeks, and I'm happy with the results. It's a nice lightweight stock, and it's stiff as all get up.
Here is a shot of the unfinished stock:
And, here is the finished rifle:
After a few changes from my original plan, here are the final specs:
Blued 700 action (previously a 7-Mag) w/ factory trigger
#3 Douglas, chopped at 21", chambered in .375 H&H
Rimrock stock, bedded w/ SteelBed, Krylon paint job
Leupold 2.5-8x in Talley LW's
All up, she weighs 7-1/2 pounds on the nose.
I hope to get out and shoot it a bit later in the week.
