" In Theory " you should be able to just drop this on . Another option would be to change that order to a Accu mark style stock . I have not worked with the newer Fibermark stocks yet but I thought that the AccuMark 30-378 style stocks would be fine after bedding the action with aircraft epoxy . Just an observation .

No matter which stock you end up with please post when you get it. I always like to hear "the end of the story".

300; if you do bed the rifle into the fibermark, I recommend Brownells Steelbed. With no dye mixed in, it will come out a medium gray color. Takes about a week to get full cure, but can be worked after 6-8 hrs. Doesn't drip or run all over everything, either. If the stock is brown, it's hard to get any kind of a color match. If it has to be brown, I use Accraglas Gel.
No matter what you decide on the recoil lug, remember not to get bedding in that hole. I use a headless 1/4"-28 screwed into the hole and pushed down through the bedding compound, then clamp the action or pull the headless bolt and replace it with a bedding screw or an action screw. When you clean up the stock, be sure and clean out the pillar holes so that only the recoil lug takes recoil, not the action screws.

Let us know how it goes. Tom
