Stock Repair

My 1898 rifle (the albatross, aka money pit) The wood broke out between the box magazine and the bolt handle.  I've glued it in place but need to make it more secure.  As I understand, drilling and inserting a oak dowel rod can achieve this intended result.  So do I use a Forester bit, drill from the top down, and glue in place?  1/4" or smaller dowel rod?

Is that something like a Forstner bit?

Since there's no stress in that area, couldn't you just epoxy it and that be good enough?

I'd keep it simple and use a small diameter 'hidden' vertical hole: Drilled on the inside of the stock, (where it is radiused for the action).

The hole would go through the glued piece and into the main stock.

Fill the hole with a 'pin' made from a Finish or 'serrated' nail (head cut off) and 'gooped up' with 'Acraglas'.

Make the pin short enough, so that it is recessed into the wood.
