I need to reduce the pull on a Remington polymer stock. Any body done this, any different than doing a wood stock?

It depends on which Remington synthetic stock you have. If you have the older one that uses a regular recoil pad, you can cut it down but might want to reinforce it with some epoxy when you re-drill the holes to re-mount the recoil pad. The recoil pad can be ground down to match the contour of the shortened stock.
If you have one of the newer synthetic stocks where the recoil pad actually fits inside the stock, you will have difficulty cutting it down because it is completely hollow inside. I guess you could fill it with epoxy to mount a regular recoil pad but the new pad can't be ground down to fit inside the shortened stock.
The new Remington stocks seem very cheap in my opinion.

I have a newer one w/ pad on inside. I tried to cut & pad no longer lines up:( Purchased a SpeedFeed w/ LOP of 13" & its perfect for me. Also comes w/ side sling adapter.

Hogue makes a reduced LOP shotgun stock. Check out Midway for details.

When I cut a synthetic stock, I usually cut a piece of wood 1" thick and sand it down so that it will fit inside the shortened stock. Then I glass it in place. This gives you something to screw the recoil pad screw to.

Make sure you drill out the wood for the stock bolt BEFORE you glass it in.

Thanks,
