Using JB Weld to Bed Action .... Hear Me Out!
OK ... so I've done my research and want to bed my Remington 700 SPS Varmint that I just purchased yesterday. I've done my research and have heard of guys using JB Weld to bed an action.
I purchased a Brownell's Acraglas Gel kit at the gun shop yesterday, but it doesn't seam to have enough material to do what I want, so here it goes.
I have 10 packets of JB Weld in the shop that I bought last year on sale, and haven't used them for anything else. I have more than enough material there.
Devcon Steel Putty, which is what a lot of people use and like to securely bed an action in a large caliber rifle isn't as strong as JB Weld.
Decon Steel Putty: Flex Strength- 5600 PSI ; Tensile Strength- 2800 PSI
JB Weld: Flex Strength - 7320 PSI ; Tensile Strength - 3960 PSI
JB Weld is stronger and costs much less.
Am I making sense here?
Should I use it , or am I missing something that some of you more experienced users have found by trial and error?
Please give me your input.
