    McMillan stock from FN SPR

    Hello all, I've got a McMillan A3 stock that carried an FN SPR in 308 which was bedded. This stock per McMillan also works for Winchesters Model 70 short action stocks made since 1984. Does anyone know how much trouble it would be for me to have a gunsmith fit the stock to a Win Mod 70 SA...
