Re: glass bedding
Over the years, I have bedded , floated and have used a few different epoxies, and glass. I used to like Acraglass gel, but with ALL of them, like you, it seems as though after you get it apart, it is sometimes difficult to re assemble.
Well, I just pillar bedded, and action bedded a 700 LSS. This time, I used plain old JB weld. As a releases agent, you can use Pam cooking spray. I have also used industrial silicone spray. It works great, and will not fail you. As to the action screws, I bought a section of 1/4-28 threaded rod, and made a T- handle. I put a check nut on it, and used that to seat the action into the stock. Taping and using putty is great, but I always remove the trigger as well.
I have bedded six rifles since that time, and I find that the JB weld works well, dries a little quicker, and most of all, it dosen't " shrink" when you dis assemble, and reassembly is easy. Try it, I think you will like it.
P/ S, using a dremel tool to do the relief work is the best way to go. Additionally, after yo take it apart, it will help you dress up the unwanted " ooze" that you get.
