JB Weld worked OK for me, but it was a bit runny. If you let it set up a while first, it is easier to work with.
But the peanut butter like Devcon 10110 is my favorite.

Yep, that's the quick stuff. It works great in barrel channels, but I wouldn't recommend it for bedding compound on the receiver (recoil lug/tang) of the rifle. The regular ol "industro" type works well for that....I buy the 15 oz tube and use it when I'm out of devcon 10110...

I have used most of the stuff out there. I cannot say I like devcon or any of the others better than JB weld.

I've used JB and it worked fine. It is a bit runnier than I like. Devcon, warmed up a bit with a hair dryer, is easier to work with in my opinion.

Exactly the reason I prefer JB. I like for the barreled action to find its own level. Devcon steel does not compress as much as I like. I like Devcon Aluminum better than the steel, but prefer JB weld. I have not had a problem with any of the bedding I have done with JB weld and I think I first started using it sporadically about 4 years ago.

I've used it a couple of times. Let it setup just for a few minutes first if you don't want it runny.

For mine, in exactly two hours you can remove the action without disturbing the bedding.
