I like devcon metal plastic myself. Job weld will work. Toilet bowl wax has been the best release agent I’ve ever used. Cheap too

90% of bedding pro’s imo are using devcon or marinetex.  The marinetex worked fine for me but you can’t go wrong with the standard - devcon.

I'm only doing front recoil lug not the whole action.

JB weld works pretty well if you get your ratios right and mix it well. I'm partial to Devcon but it's pretty expensive if you only have 1 or 2 rifles to bed. I've done 10 or 12 guns with 1# of Devcon.

I've had good luck with Kiwi shoe polish as a release agent combined with some of the kids' clay to fill any voids in the action. I haven't glued a gun yet, but I was a little nervous on one or two of them. :chuckle:

What action are you bedding?

I got one I'm going to "bed" with no release agent.  It shot real good until I had to pull the action from the stock.  I found out that the previous owner bedded it with no release agent and I decided when I returned it to the stock I'd do it the same way.  It was about the same as a glue in but also using the action screws.

Here's the pic , not as good looking as I expected,but it did take the slip out,i will clean up with dreamel tomorrow.
This is my first attempt so not good looking,but will work.
Glad I took it apart cause I think it might of been glued if I waited any longer.

Marinetex  or Devcon give a much nicer finish.

With JB, I let it sit overnight and pop it loose after 12-14 hrs, that seems about perfect for the temps in my shop.isn't going to lift or change shape but I can still clean it up with a sharp knife and drill out the hole for the action screws.  All I've bedded is the front/recoil lug but it makes a positive difference. 

For those factory stocks that I notice vertical stringing, sand down the contact points, dremel out the recoil lug area so I get more epoxy in there, then bed it.  Reduced the fliers to almost nil and turned a totally factory 700 into an excellent shooting rifle, same with two Savages and a Ruger.  Some people frown on the finish but I think it looks great when done carefully, plus you can't even see it unless the action is taken out  :tup:

Not really practical for hunting.
:fire.:

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield
