Default BDL Detacted mag vs. hinged

Looking to get a Mcmillian edge for a 300win mag BDL with DBM.

Can I get a stock that is made for a BDL with hinged floorplate and the DBM fit? McMillian said "they think so". Please no guessing. If you know I appreciate it.

As to the DBM footprint exactly matching the BDL,that is not the case,plus you'll need to inlet relief scallops from which to retrieve the DBM out with.

Dick Davis is who you want to talk to at McMillan.
Actually thought about trading someone same rifle but with hinged floor plate. I was never really crazy about rem's hinged floor plate. I see your point on the ADL.

I was moose hunting once and got caught up in the black spruce and that stupid hinged setup came undone. In the field on a stalk is not the time for crap to flying all over the ground, wasn't happy. Started hunting with a sako75 after that.

There are some killer 700 bottoms available,some going so far as to include a secondary "Tactical" latch,that mandates a bullet tip or similar to actuate the catch in conjunction with the more traditional latch in conjunction. Not my cup of tea,though it may swoon some.

For Utility...ADL rules.
Williams I assume? Oh well, well made product cost good money.

Actually confused about that myself. It is a gun forum. Whatever I guess. Got the info I need. Thanks
