Nice video review. Love the hydro dip. I've never held a McMillan A3 but I have had a Game Warden. They look similar but I think the comb on the Game Warden isn't as high and the forearm on the A3 protrudes or has more surface and is flatter along the bottom although it didn't appear to in the video. How well did you like that part?

You compare the A3 to the EH1. I have a couple EH1s and love that stock but acquiring them is a bit more time consuming than a McMillan. Would you consider the A3 over the EH1?

I prefer the A3 over the EH1 for the reasons I mentioned in the video. The fore end does not matter much to me as I almost always shoot prone. I will say I don't really notice the difference between the A3 and a true sporter stock when it comes to off hand shooting. Here are some of the popular stock specs given to me by McMillan.

Thanks for the video, Who did you have paint/dip your stock? it looks great! I have that same stock on a 6.5 Sherman and that would be a great face lift!!
