I found that birch laminated stocks tend to spread under strain from rounded receivers when stock screws are tight, so I use pillars and pieces of stove bolts transversely embedded within the epoxy, near screw holes. I've also seen factory plastic stocks crack near the front screw.
Several companies use horizontal through-bolts to keep heavy-recoiling rifles from splitting or spreading stocks.
