Devcon 10110 plastic steel putty, it's exy but it's what a lot of people use.
I got a price for 500 grams & it was $180 :S

I used a similar product from devcon that comes in 50g tube which does 1 to 2 rifles depending on what you are doing.

I'd be interested to head how much the in weld is!

A lot of guys also use acra glass I think it's called?

ive used nathan's stuff, works really well but if you have a plastic stock, burn the shit out of it, also go overboard with your release agent.

thanks!!

Another +1 for Nathan's matchgrade bedding compound. Easy to work with, good/detailed instructions, and to top it off he's got some good vids as well.

Just go and buy some Devcon Plastic Steel Epoxy in the home use package.

Cost is between $12 and $18 depending on where you buy it.

Simple 1:1 mixing. Let it sit for a couple of minutes and get it on the stock. Insert action. Torque and let sit.

FFS don't forget to put some release agent on the barrelled action. Glued in really sucks.

I use PVA release agent from my local fibreglass supply place. Easy to apply, easy to remove (hot water).

Others seem to get by with Kiwi natural boot polish.

I did a 204 yesterday, should have done a tutorial on my method. Maybe next time.

The Devcon gives really good results, I bought 500gm on Ebay from the states and it was $60 delivered I have bedded 3 rifles and have heaps left. It is a heavy product so if your working on a rifle to match weight be aware of that, its very good to use and has a slow enough curing time to get everything cleaned up without having to rush, its very strong so check everywhere and make sure you have no mechanical lock that will hold the action in the stock. I use dubbin which is basically a wax based boot sealer/polish on the metal work as a release agent and it works a treat, once everything has cured a simple tap under load and the action pops away from the stock. you can tape up or put wax anywhere you don't want the devcon to go. The finish is a perfect fit and glossy, the result is no movement and combined with pillars you cant go wrong.

That's what I use, its $30 for the 2X25gr tubes, cheaper if you can get some sort of trade discount ;)

In regards to Nathans stuff,
Dont let it set too long, and use plenty of anti-sieze.
If you use a lamp or hot water bottle to help cure it, dont get it too hot, it will set quickly!
Dont over torque action down. Bungee is fine, cut up inner tube, physio bands etc.

A while back in one of my projects it siezed up, I didnt use enough anti-sieze, over torqued, and too much heat, and left it too long.
result was a snapped stock, a waste of 60 hours of hand rubbed tung oil and a beautiful piece of maple.

In take 2, It turned out much nicer (american walnut this time too)

it's only a boyds stock so if worst does happen it's not that hard to get another one and think i'm heading towards the JB weld stuff just that 10 hour setting time should allow me to fix any f@#! ups that happen
