I use Devcon steel putty these days but used J-B Weld a few times. It worked well and those bedding jobs are still holding up nicely. The guy who taught me about bedding will only use J-B Weld and he successfully beds lots of rifles for lots of folks.

Va,

I use JB on all my rifles...but only on the tang.

Reason : I use Marine Tex for the lug area...that would be step one

Step two, next day I pop out the rifle and do the tang area after the front is cured. Because it is the tang, I only need a small amount of epoxy, and JB in the little tubes makes it a breeze to mix up a small amount.

Soooooo.....basically my bedding jobs are two part : lug area first, I build up the tang contact area with tape, so I leave some room for epoxy. Round two has me pull the rifle out of the stock, clean up the front end, prep the tang area for epoxy. I apply the epoxy to the tang area, replace the rifle in the stock and torque the front action screw, and only have a dummy screw in the tang hole. I believe that this method beds the tang area better while the front screw is torqued to the amount of tension that the rifle will be sitting in the stock. Obviously I use a torque wrench on my rifles.

Never had a rifle shift zero if I pull it apart and put it back together using a torque wrench.

Works for me anway.......YMMV.

Tony

Tony;

Good idea. I'll try that with the next one (J-B front/rear, though) and see if it makes any difference.

How many pounds are you torquing?

Dang, almost hoping it would stick just to jazz up the thread on the Campfire page. wink

Couldn't think of a reason why JB Weld wouldn't work but JB Weld has been so abused it just screams BUBBA! to me. Nothing wrong with the product, just some of the things people try to do with it.

Well, I did 'bout phuck it up.

The bedding looks great.

J-B Weld up the front action screw hole into the action, though, didn't look so swift.

Thanks to Northern Dave and Sitka Deer for talking me down, and through the fix.

J-B Weld make marine version which is a bit more resistant to chemicals ect, so might be even better suited for bedding...

Can you bed with this stuff? Should I? Anyone done it?

Thanks.

VA, You inspired me to try this stuff on my Ruger hawkeye all weather. I asked earlier if it has been done before but no one replied. I am liking the JB weld as a bedding compound, but find it a little runny compared to the other actual bedding compounds. Take a look at my thread if you are interested. The nice thing about JB weld is it is cheap like others have mentioned. It is also very strong and well suited for bedding. BSA.

If I do not have acccess to a hair dryer type heat gun I prefer JBW to devcon steel. Without heat I cannot get the barreled action to settle into the devcon steel without a bunch of pressure. They just sink into the JB. Devcon may be harder, but IMO the JBW is plenty hard enough.
