Been There, Done That. The Richard's you want to use is on the East Coast. The Richard's Microfit is a big project. But the problem is that they do a poor job on Savage inletting. Check out the Vartac from Sharpshooter supply,
http://www.sharpshootersupply.com . It's a true drop-in:
Brownells also sells a real nice 100% finished stock that, in profile is a dead ringer for a McMillan A3. If you can't wait for the SSS stock, and don't need the adjustable cheekpiece, consider the Zero Stock on sale now at Brownells. A steal at $192, finish sanded and fully inletted, with a bedding kit. Nice Laminate. I suspect it may need a little more tweaking on the inletting, but that's easy to do with wood.
(note: delivered stocks are dark gray, not natural as in picture)
"Resin-impregnated, laminated maple provides stability in all weather conditions or climates. Straight-drop pistol grip with dual, wundhammer bulges gives a natural wrist angle for better trigger control. Beavertail forearm and tall comb. Fully inletted, final sanded, ready to bed and finish. Extra-wide barrel channel for target contour barrels, plus front and rear sling swivel studs and rubber recoil pad.
SPECS: Black-on-black (BLK). 32" (81 cm) long, 14-½" (36cm) length of pull, 2-1/8" (5.3cm) wide forearm, 13/16" (3cm) diameter barrel channel, 3 lb. 11 oz. (1.7kg) wt. Includes GLASBED® kit. Rem. 700 available to fit drop floorplate BDL and blind magazine ADL."
