Re: choate stock?
It was just bolted in, never skim bedded on Derricks. Dad skim bedded all his though.
Email me and I'll send you a pic of a "real" modified one.
Mods aren't really necessary, just preferance. The grip thinned and recontoured smaller in diameter at the top is all I'd do if I had one.
I'd stir the epoxy/glue up with the shot and make a so it looks like chocolate chip cookie dough that you went WAAAAAAY overboard on chocolate chips with [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] and apply it with what ever works to get it in there, a spoon or somethin.
It's going to set up and won't break loose unless you use too little glue. It's just an epoxy shot glob that bonds in place however you want it, just more flexible to use that way.
Recoil is reduced quite a bit, the muzzle brake was much more effective though. In conjunction, the 338/378 WBY shoots like a 243-308 though.
