    Just need some clarifications, I was in my hardware store were I saw Devcon Plastic still epoxy in 25 ml combination tubes, so is it the same as Devcon Plastic Still Putty 10110, I bought one to see how hard it gets and it seems to be very good, takes 6 - 7 hours to harden.

    It is not the same stuff. It will work for bedding , but it will shrink quite a bit as it sets. 10110 is far better in that regard. I have bedded a dozen or so rifles using the stuff in tubes but have never had one come out without blemishes. 10110 comes out right the first time.

    I see, thanks! I guess will buy 1 lb of putty, when I only need 1 oz of the stuff, just hope it will not spoil with years on the shelf. :cool:
