    I'm able to get a McM inletted for a Williams Floorplate ("new style" as I understand). It's a bit unfair to ask Williams directly as I don't intend to buy their product, so the question is whether anyone here knows if the standard BDL bottom metal will fit? From the Williams website the new bottom metal is supposed to be "drop in" for a BDL, which my (maybe overly simplified) analysis tells me should be both ways around.

    Rifle is short action 700 BDL.

    Thanks for any advice and guidance.

    Williams is a regular visitor over on Accuratereloading, and I'm sure he won't be offended by your question. ACCURATERELOADING.COM

    I bought a Williams bottom metal set for a Rem 700 and had no problems replacing the original. I'm sure it'll fit.

    Thanks for the replies.

    I did send Williams an e-mail from their website, but haven't had a response yet. I've decided to take the stock and will see if it works. If not I'll have to try to get a floorplate sent over.

    Thanks again.
