Nice work! Check out rimfire central, several of us over there build stocks. It a nice place to pick up ideas.
If you sealed the wood well I wouldn't be too concerned. You did well in strengthening the stock with threaded rod and jb weld. Only other place you might need is a cross bolt to prevent it from splitting with repeat recoil. Look at older mil rifles like the 03 Springfield or the moisin nagant. They used the cheapest wood that would do the job with a crossbolt.
Wood is the cheapest part of building a stock. Judging by your workmanship you'll move up to a better stick for the next one. There is always a "next one".
