I'm bedding the lug of a rifle that I had to remove a small portion of the Alluminum Bedding block on the sides to make the Oversized recoil lug fit as a result I want to restore as much of the strength of the lug recess as possible and get the precise fit. I'm not seeing any need to bed the rest of the block at this time.
I was wondering if any body has used J-B Weld as a bedding material. I have bedded a few stocks in the past using bedding kits with good success. So I'm not new to bedding actions. I've never tried this stuff and was looking for pros or cons and past experience.
I would recomend the Brownells Steel bed for many reasons, It is made for that purpose. It is easy
to use, working time is good. It has metal in it making it very tough and hard and it doesent run
like some of the others.
There are many different types of bedding compounds that are cheaper but the difference in price
is not not worth the difference in trouble.
Just my opinion.
