Switching from McMillan stock to wood stock question

I have recently purchased a custom built M1A. I have questions about replacing the stock. But first a little info about the rifle. The Krieger, 22 chrome moly heavy barrel (1:10 twist), was chambered and fit to the SA receiver by Krieger Barrel Inc. Krieger also fit the gas tube assembly, the aluminum oversized op-rod guide, and also glass bedded the McMillan M3A stock. The trigger group, oversized aluminum op-rod, gas tube, and bolt are USGI (bolt is TRW). The receiver is not rear lugged. National match modifications include; TIG weld to gas tube assembly (done by Fulton Armory), trigger modification (done by Fulton Armory). National match parts include; gas piston (polished, National Match; purchased from Fulton Armory) and rear sight assembly (National Match, purchased from Fulton Armory).
My questions are, if I wanted to replace the stock with a wooden one, is there a specific type I should get, how much accuracy would I loose, and any recommendations on who I should use to replace the stock and have it properly bedded? Not sure I am going to swap it out, but I really like the traditional look of the wooden stock with this rifle.

I feel you would be going backwards for function & durability but if you want wood it's your gun. Many very good shooting rifle in wood stocks before & after Mac stocks showed up.
I just went the other way and replaced a new wood stock with a Mac stock.
