any tips or home tricks to bedding a rifle, can you use epoxy? boat resin? what should you use to separate the barrel from the bedding to form the fit? I have heard people use grey boat resin and foil or wax paper to gap the fit? and last three inches of stock only?

I am open to anything and would like to here some results

thanks

Go to www.brownells.com and find Acraglas Gel. While there are "boat epoxies" that might work, the Acraglas is specifically formulated for rifles, it comes with release agent, and it comes in a kit with instructions that will answer all your questions.
