It can be round because if it is large enough and bedded into the stock permanently
It will transfer recoil just fine.
The main thing is to have a very tight fit between the action screw boss and the custom pillar
You can make the pillar rectangular but it is more diffacult to build and install but with a
round pillar it is easy using step drills on the stock to get a well centered pillar using the
action screw hole in the stock as the pilot hole.
You can also make your own factory type luge buy cutting a piece of stainless or carbon steel
Angle the length of the slot in the stock, cut the part that goes down to fit the depth of the
slot ,place it in the slot and using the action screw hole mark the center to be drilled for the
boss on the action for later drilling. once this is done test fit the lug to the boss and if
everything fits well then you can bed the lug into the stock being careful not to glue the lug
to the action.
To me it's harder to do this than the round pillar.
