Attaching bases to rifle (which loctite to use)

I am attaching Talley bases to my Rem 700 SA and was wondering what Loctite product you guys recommend.

Thanks in advance, Steve

+1 for blue

Also DON'T put it in the threaded holes .After you set the base in place apply "ONE"
drop to each screw and install.

You don't want it inside the recever especially the front scope mount hole over the barrel.
( a gunsmiths worst nightmare ).

Before it dries torque to suggested spec.
