The problem is that the remington stocks are a thermo-plastic and they DO move with temp changes. We made a quick jig, that held the rifle stock from the bottom, using the action holes. The jig was made from a 2" x 6" x 18" piece of hardened steel plate. After attaching the stock and tightening the action screws, the jig and stock were set outside overnight on a night that got down to 8 deg. Brought it into the shop, set up a number of dial indicators and allowed the stock to begin warming up. As the stock slowly warmed to around 50 deg, the dials looked like they were detecting an earthquake! Then put the heat on and let it warm to 80 deg. Again plenty of movement. The stock actually lengthened through the mag box area as it warmed. After seeing this, I would sure choose a pillar bedded wood stock over a rem factory synthetic, bedded in any fashion.
