+1 on the Kiwi neutral shoe polish. Buy it at a shoe store, WalMart, whereever. Put it on everywhere, let it dry, buff it with a paper towel to get it polished and smooth. Put some on a Q-Tip to coat the inside of the pillars and rub it all over the action screws. Works great.
I normally use alignment studs so there is no chance of getting any epoxy into the bolt recess of the rifle. If you use the receiver screws, plug the holes with plumbers putty that will be forced into the action when you insert the receiver screws - it minimizes getting epoxy inside the bolt lug recess.
