hollow Savage stock

Talking about the 111 Trophy Hunter. I'd like to know if anyone has done anything to improve the stock by filling in the buttstock and fore end spaces. Maybe some sort of resin? It just has such a hollow feel to it.
I can't just out right replace at this time.

Thanks,
Andy

    This is for the Axis series but the same principles apply.

    Made my 7-08 Axis shoot the best groups of all my rifles, so I just did it to 300wm Trophy Hunter XP. Haven't been to the range yet due to crap weather but I am hoping to make it out in the next couple o days.

    I have used spray foam and silicone before with great results. Have you ever bumped your stock walking or in a stand? It's loud and carries. I used silicone on a couple of rifles that weight wasnt an issue on. I used spray foam on one that was heavy enough. I did really like the silicone over the foam though.
