question- stock making, and fitting

Does anyone have a home remedy for finding high spots in ur stock when fitting barrel,receiver . what im looking for is to put something on my barrel and receiver thats safe and will transfer to the wood in stock so i can see high spots, problem areas. i know they sell stuff to do this but im sure someone know a trick.
getting ready here in PA for rifle season. checking our shooting spots and possibly going to build another bench!

    What you are referring to is called "inking"
    Permatex makes a blue ink in a tube. MSC and Brownell's sell it.
    Use a small brush to apply it to the action then fit it in the stock. The ink will transfer to the areas of the stock that come in contact.

    There you have it.

    Light a candle under the action, the smoke will blacken it. Then follow the directions in the above post.

    I have also used carbon paper ( They use to use a lot of it when typewriters were around)

    Just tape it to the action or barrel .set it in the stock and move the barreled action a little
    and it will leave marks on the stock in the area thats touching.

    Just another way to skin the cat
