Sorry I haven't gotten back in here sooner, got sidetracked.
Anyway, I haven't tried heating the action. Ain't got time, basically. With our bedding puller it pops out pretty easy anyway.
I use Brownell's release. Don't like the wax, to easy to miss a spot and I have seen way too many actions stuck with it.
So while we are still talking about this I would like you guys to comment on using Imperial Sizing wax as a release agent. I to had to pull very hard to get my barrelled action out of the stock when I used the Johnson's paste wax. By the way the smith told me to use the big soldering iron if the action gets stuck, just lay it on the action and let it heat up for while. The expoy will come loose from the expansion of the metal.
Anyway, the two bedding jobs I've done since then with Imperial sizing wax popped right out. We all know how slippery that stuff is.
So does anyone see an issue with using Imperial Sizing wax as a release agent?
Yes bed the lug. Will probably help and sure won't hurt.
I would think Imperial would be a little costly to use for a release agent. The $13 can from Brownells will do at least 20 rifles maybe more. A really cheap alternitive is Pam or any other non-stick cooking spray.
