Convert Remington repeater to single shot

I have a custom Remington 700 in 7mm STW that was built by John Van Dyke several years ago. It has a Shilen match barrel and Accurate Innovation stock. At the time it was built I requested a detachable box magazine for no other reason than I thought I needed it.

Through the course of finding the best load and seating depth for this rifle it became obvious that the loads the rifle liked were to long to fit in the magazine. I have been using it as a single shot for quite some time. Now in an attempt to squeeze some more accuracy out of this rifle and since I'm not using the magazine anyway, I'm thinking I should stiffen up the action and "block up" the magazine well.

I have been searching the internet for the correct part to insert into the mag well and have found this built by Kampfeld Custom


Has anyone used this and have an opinion on its success? Or are ther other options out there that I have not run across yet?

Re: Convert Remington repeater to single shot

I think the way its usaly done is they dont cut out the stock for bottom metal and then glue in a follower. Maybe you can fill it up with bedding compound glue in a fowler.
