detachable mag question:

I have a rem700SA in a HSPrecision stock and I'd like to have a detachable box mag, the question is how much inletting might be involved and will the alum bedding block be an issue ?
In particular PT&G makes detachable bottom metal and it's on sale now at a sweet
price of 99 bucks.....
Ever since I installed the one piece picatinny scope mount and the SS 10x42 scope
loading from the top is a real bear so the box mag seems like the next step !
Any suggestions would be welcome.

    I guess no one has ever done one of these or it might have been a stupid question ?

    Shawn Carlock w/Defensive Edge put a HS Precision DM system in the .223AI they built me. In fact I believe it was one of the very first 223DM systems HS Precision sold. It started out life as a Rem. LTR 223 with the factory HS Precision stock and standard BDL floor plate but I'm not sure if or how much work was involved in putting that DM system in. I could be wrong but I don't believe there was much if any "fitting" involved to putting it in. I'm very happy with it and it's a very clean looking setup in my 223AI
