To fix it,Take the action out of the stock and use an epoxy to fill the hole in the stock.
After the epoxy has cured,just drill a hole a little smaller than the screw,and put the screw back in.

Screw it in tight,but not too much,or it will do the same thing again.
Epoxy is your best bet, you can even screw your screw in before it cures
and tighten it a bit more after it cures.

Loctite will not cure on plastics, wood or stainless steel so that is not an
option. You can get a primer for stainless applications. Also for gunwork
Loctite 222 (purple) is your product of choice.
