I think I know why the Rem 700 rifles I take the barrels off have goop in the threads. Rifles are right at the threshold of having the barrels fall off with simple receivers like a Rem700 or Save 110. That may mean tightening the threads or putting in Loctite.
The "GOOP" in The threads is not like Loctite, It is a sealer that prevents the bluing salts from
interring the threads during bluing and corroding the threads because they could not be removed.
Barrels and actions are blued at the same time (Together).
Most all stainless rifles don't have the sealer because there is no treatment that attacks the threads.
Also with 65+ foot/lbs + of torque they wont fall off so there is no need for Loctite. you would shoot
the barrel off before it fell off.
