I'm seeing HBR listed again in my area.

Question;

Does this stock comply with HBR rules?

Question; Does this stock comply with HBR rules? https://mcmillanusa.com/mcmillan-rifle-stocks/competition-stocks-anschutz-silhouette/ It appears that, presuming a maximum fore-end width, of 2.25", it would CONFORM to the rules: the specs. page is empty from my end. The "normal" Hunter Class stock, per Francis may be easier to make the 10.0 Lb. weight limit (?) - but that's another SWAG! RG

Yup, under 2 1/4 and over on all other min's as far as I can tell

Does your area enforce mag box? Follower? Spring? (I've seen sponge pads)

It's probably way too heavy anyway.

The McMillan HBR stock on my HBR Rifle weighs 35.3oz bedded w/pillars and AL trigger guard AND a rubber recoil pad.....

The McMillan Anschutz is 44.6 with the parts stacked on the scale. so, YES I'm giving up over a half a pound. That Anschutz has a ton of gelcoat on it. And no buttplate.


On the flipside, I was at one time considering putting weight on the back of my HBR.......

have to be a cutout in the stock, but there must be a cutout in the action. The critical aspects of the HBR are the 10# weight limit, 2.25 forend width, and 6X scope. The action cannot be glued in.

(I've seen sponge pads) In the NBRSA rule book, the functional (feed and load from the) magazine died (was changed) a LONG time ago - the action need only have a slot wide and long enough to allow a loaded round, held parallel to the axis of the action/bore, to pass through - somethin' like that. The "follower" may not be attached to either the action, or, stock. The sponge deal has been the default method - probably for over 15 years now. ;-) Good shootin'! RG

One thing to check, is the bottom of the stock textured like the Anchutz stocks were? Looking at the picture it appears to be, and it might be a project to smooth this area for use on the bench

I could imagine worse stocks for a HBR rifle.

But not many..... -Al

I have had a number of HBR stocks over the years, two which were Kelbly Klubs. I liked them better than the McMillins pictured. The Edge is also good but I'd go with a Klub if I were to go again. No sweat making weight even with a thin pad.

Hi Pete. Kelbly's Hunter Class stock (the HCFB model) is a nice one, for sure. They also make this stock in a 3" version, the 'BRFB'. The 'Klub' model is actually a 3" forearm for LV/HV use.

Hope all is well with you. -Al :)

P.S. For me, the best Hunter Class stock is the original Speedy/McMillan pattern, now long out of production. Some years back, I spoke with Kelley McMillan about bringing it back.

Having a great time spending the Nursing Home's money slowly. Shooting less this year, me. Finally sheding some of the stuff I have been dragging around with me for years. Taking great pleasure watching the Oriole eating an orange just outside my window as I write this.

Life is OK.

Hope all is well with you too.
