Hey guys, I am going to bed a scope base to a rifle in the next few days. I used brownells steel bed for my last rifle's base but I'm out of that. I've got some marine tex on hand, is this suitable for the scope base or should I go get some Devcon? Also what can I use for a release agent?
To be honest Dave, I don't know how necessary it is. The talk about the stress that comes from torquing a base down that is not an exact fit to the action makes perfect sense to me. I don't know if i would ever be able to diagnose a problem due to a stressed mount system, but I feel a lot better just eliminating any possibility of a problem.
