Duracoat

I am considering Duracoating a rifle (or two) that have are bedded. would the thickness of the Duracoat affect the rifles or would they need to be rebedded?

Re: Duracoat

I should have been a little more specific in that I want to duracoat the barreled actions.

Re: Duracoat

Only put one or two light coats on the underside our your action where it makes contact. I do this and then seal with one coat of clear, works just fine. However, I am not going to use duracoat any more for barrels and actions. On metal, I've found it to be just about as duarable as krylon.

Had the same issue then started using more hardener and applying in a drier room and letting it sit for 7 days before use. so far so good.
