We have all been there. Accraglass or Steel bed or other bedding compound is all set up and hardened and now it is the nervous time to see if the rifle is EVER going to come out of the stock! We remove the action screws, pull off the bottom metal (Hopefully this comes off easliy but....) then we wrap our fingers around the barrel and tug. UGH! No movement! Pull harder and harder then go up the force continueum until we HOPEFULLY at last are holding a barreled action and a still in tact riflestock in two separate hands. WHEW! Another close call! Now it is time to analyze, how much damage did we do to the bluing, metalwork or stock before it came apart for us?

So, to avoid all of this angst, what do YOU all use as a relaible and easy release agent when glass bedding a rifle? I have three of them to do for a rancher who is allowing me to hunt bear and cougar on his large tract of prime bear and cougar habitat and I want these jobs to go smoothly. I have a can of Brownells spray on release agent coming to try out, but wonder if this is THE BEST or if there iss omething else out there that is even better. Car Wax and PAM non stick spray been tried with minimal success so far.

THANKS in advance for the intel and suggestions,

MARK

One Shot case lube from Hornady is what I have used for 7-8 years with 100% success. I usually give the rifle 1 coat and let dry and then hit it with a good 2nd coat.

I like oneshot, being a spray on its easy to get in the nooks and cranies, but it goes on thin and makes for a tight release ( most of my bedding is Rugers, and those parallel reciever sides make for a tight bedding job as compared to a remington.

If you want an easy release try two coats of the stuff that comes with an accraglass kit.

High score release agent is what I've been using. Kiwi is what ill use when it runs out.

I personally don't use the action screws. I've made a few sets of studs to use if not bedding with pillars.I use electrical tape to hold the action and stock together during curing.

Obviously, a bunch of different options work. I'd heard the wax deal for years, just always used the spray release from Brownells. It seems to be the fastest and easiest to use, and works great.

One Shot works really well and it doesn't get any easier.

I heard Pam cooking spray was good, BUT don't try it. Don't ask...

Carnuba wax is what I used to use and it worked fine, used to use a small paint brush to apply it.
