There are bedding kits and compounds you can order (midway below). I have used some in the past with good results. That said, search youtube and you will get some good advice and techniques. Many I've seen recommend Marine-Tex and almost all I've watched use simple Johnson Paste Wax as the release agent. Focus on the prep and wax and give it a try.

I've installed 9-10 Boyds stocks on rifles and haven't needed to glass bed any of them. I check the fit on everyone of them, and very few needed any further sanding to have the actions fit in them solid.

The inletting on the Boyds stocks really is amazing. - The best I've ever seen.

Having said that, I bedded mine anyway.

Devcon "Steel" epoxy, plumbers putty, petroleum jelly release agent.

That nutmeg color looks really nice. When it comes in, post a picture or two for us.

Ive kinda grown tired of the black laminate and nutmeg. So many guns out there in that color. I ordered the green camo whatever color on a gun a while back and have grown to like it a lot more lately.

Got this one recently for a win 70.

Coyote.



I think next time I might go for Zombie. (Black and day-glo green)

The critters are color-blind, it's all camo as far as they are concerned.

I wanted the pepper, but now I have another gun with that so I'm thinking Coyote, Zombie or maybe Applejack.

Charlesb, love the coyote color scheme. Thinking of ordering the same stock. Is that the standard or high gloss finish?

I order all of my Boyd's stocks unfinished since I have to enlarge the barrel channels on most of them. I also finish sand and shape each one to my liking,and then put a hand rubbed Tung oil finish on each one. 10 coats,and wet sanded between coats. If a matte finish is desired,then use 0000 steel wool on the last coat after it dries.
6.5-06- Color is Royal Jacaranda



223- Black & Grey



7mm-08 and 6.5 Creedmoor- Nutmeg





308- Blue/Grey/Black The blue is a lot darker than the picture,the flash on the camera made it look really light blue.




Ruger 10/22 Evolution stock- Royal Jacaranda

Gotta ask about the Boyd's Thumbhole VT's...does the near verticle right hand wrist grip help with reducing recoil? or are the calibers these beautimous examples not using sufficient recoil caliber wise to generate much thump.

Really need to find something to compensate with in the future besides gross weight and a Limbsaver for some of the calibers I used to be able to shoot from off my forehead (at least on a dare over campfire whiskey) with the hyper sensitive right shoulder that the docs can't seem to figure out. Sold a sub moa 270 T3 composite last year to a THF'er...and still miss everything about the gun except the recoil that was doable even for load ladders off the bench with a Past Pad AND a Limbsaver at the time, but with no longterm upside in sight.

IMO Stock Shape is the next frontier to explore, beside sub 2700fps MV's aka low 50's K psi chamber pressures in a 260/270...
