    Yep. I believe McMillan has three different "standard" fills, and does combinations as well. Basically, it is the density and corresponding weight of the fiberglass "foam" they fill the stock with. Sniper fill is the heaviest of the bunch..

    Correct me if I'm wrong on any of the above. ?

    Well, there may not be an "official" name for it, but McMillan knows exactly what a sniper fill is, in fact, the stocks with sniper fill come with "sniper" stamped on the inside of the barrel channel. The "sniper" fill is more dense and heavy, and if you plan on torquing your barreled action down to 65 inch-pounds, then you better get the sniper fill. If you do not, you will crush the interior of the stock when torquing it down. (Don't ask me how I know this).

    Pillar bedding will take care of the torque crushing so anyone with a standard fill stock don't worry. Just have it pillar bedded.

    According to McMillan, they saw no difference with anything from 30-70 in-lbs, just make sure the front and back are the same. If you do not have pillars I would just go with 45 and call it good.
