Stock choices

I am looking at upgrading the stock on my Remington 700 SPS Varmint. I would like to bed the action in the stock. From what I understand, the injection molded factory stock will not adhere correctly to the bedding compound. Is this true for all synthetic stocks or just injection molded plastics?

I've had spotty luck with Brownells Acraglas on the Remington stocks, but have gotten good results with Devcon. Just be sure to rough up the bedding areas to help the devcon to stick. The same release agent for acraglas will work with devcon. Brownells sells devcon, so its easy to get now.

I'm not sure, but I think the release agent used in the stock molds interfered with the acraglas.

Will the stock need any added support to make it more rigid to help the stock from bending or twisting?
