go on to brownells.com and they have kits for rifles that come with the right length pillars and the counter bore bit. just drill the screw holes out, glue the pillars in and go. im doing that for my mauser also and going to bed the recoil lug and tang also. the laminate on the boyds stocks are pretty good as far as worrying about swelling goes. thats the same i just ordered only i got the varmint with the wide front end in pepper.
