Does the type of rifle stock affect accuracy?
Yes. The accuracy fanatics at McMillan discovered in 1973 that rifles made out of fiberglass produced the most accuracy as opposed to their wood or inexpensive synthetic counterpart.

What does it mean when a rifle stock is labeled as synthetic or composite?
The term “synthetic” merely means fabricated from artificial materials that lack fundamental rigidity and strength, along with element resistance to moisture and harsh chemicals. Whereas “composite” denotes a fiberglass stock that has been laminated using a graphite cloth producing the ultimate strength, durability and accuracy that we find in stocks like the McMillan Edge.
What is the importance of bedding a stock?
Bedding a rifle stock is imperative to overall accuracy and stability. When you fire off a round, the recoil and vibration ripple through the entire firearm, from the barrel and action to the butt of the gun resting on your shoulder. This produces stress and movement that can drastically affect accuracy and reliability. Epoxy glass bedding provides peak stability by forming a perfectly tight seal between the stock and action resulting in consistent accuracy, consequently providing a robust lifespan for your long range rifle stock.
Why is fiberglass a good material for stocks?
The advantages of fiberglass are not only accuracy – imperative for long range rifles – but they also provide rigidity and are non-warping, as well as being resilient to an array of weather elements. Additionally, research and rigorous field testing has proven unequivocally that reinforced fabrics combined with resins comprise a stabilizing quality that acts as a shock absorber.
