    I am having a rifle built on a stiller predator long action. They are cut for the Wyatt Extended Magazine boxes and I am wondering if I have to let McMillan know about this for inletting my stock. Also if a standard Remington long action BDL floor plate will work with them.

    I agree with asking Kevin himself. No better source that the maker. It has been my experience that Kevin's mag boxes are approximately .110" longer than OEM mag boxes. I always tell McMillian Fiberglass when I am using Wyatt extened and/or extened and expanded boxes (.284 and short mag boxes). It saves me inlett time. I always ask for Weatherby fill in the action area of the stock and have the screw holes opened up to .500" so I can just slide in and glue my pillars.

    That's a nice little combination your having built, very portable.Don't be to fussed with the inletting it took me all of five minutes to open it up for the wyatts.Good luck with your build.
