Everything depends on the specifics, but, I have pre-drill holes into the studs and then screwed LONG 1/2” lag bolts into the studs, then cut off the heads and drill matching holes into the mantle, fill up the holes with epoxy, put liquid nail on the back of the mantle and press it into position. Might have to prop the mantle up until everything drys, again, depending on the specifics.
That’s how I did this one.
