Does this PSI rating refer to the hardness and if so would the JB weld I found be better to use for the bedding job.
Hardness and ductility go together and there is a happy medium. I always recommend using a
compound that is specifically made for bedding.
The fact that something will work does not mean it,s best . It can be to hard and brittle, to soft and it will not last. Some compounds are very difficult to work with and with difficulty comes poor bedding jobs.
Buy something that is made for bedding firearms and easy to work and you wont be sorry. Leave the
multipurpose compounds for the experienced.
Just a recommendation.
