They actually make a tool that turns to the left when struck specifically for this type of situation. I have used them for removing screws on airplanes but can't for the life of me remember what it's called.

They are called ez outs, or a screw extractor.

I would not use something that you hit with a hammer to loosen it on a wood stock

I think it stands to reason that being careful is a must but striking the screw is an effective way of getting epoxy to release from the surfaces. Done it myself a few times in a few different circumstances, at least once on a rifle bedding job. Good luck!

What about firing a few rounds through it?  Or putting it in the freezer and then working on it?
