Unable to remove stock. Any ideas?

I have a Savage 12fv and I cannot remove the stock. The front screw is stuck. I have went through many allen wrenches, luckily the bolt doesn't strip out, my wrenches give way before the bolt head does. Any ideas how to get it out?
And yes I'm turning it the right way, and yes I'm using the correct size tool.
Any help is appreciated!

    Put some Kroil oil on it, let it sit overnight. Try a hammer impact tool with the correct bit.

    If it rounds hex wrenches a drill bit most probably won't touch it.

    May have to grind it. Gotta be careful with grinding. Very careful!

    It only gets worse from there. Especially when you reach for the vise-grips.

    Try "Grabit Pro", I got mine at Home Depot for under $20 ... best screw removal tool for the money.

    Use the removal tip first before drilling, I didn't have to drill mine.

    Good luck!

    Thanks for your input! Sounds like I have a good excuse to get some new tools. Grinding and ruining my stock is my last option, good thing I am making a new one for it.
