I wanna give it a try, but I'd hate to screw up new Manners. Or glue something together permanently. Any tips or tricks? What bedding compound do ya'll like?

You can watch three or four youtube videos and get the main points...it's really not all that complicated.

I think Marine Tex is the favored epoxy these days, but just about any good two-part epoxy should work. If you choose Acra-Glas, get the gel formulation.

I use Johnson's Paste Wax as a release agent. Works fine.

Here are some utube Glassbedding vidieos

First I sand prep and clean stock.
Then mask and apply release agent on the metal.
As far as the bedding agent I like a thick material.

This is what I used.

Do you have any less expensive rifles around to practice on? Old savage 110s can be had for $250-300 if you donít and they make great project rigs.

Pc7 and cheap kiwi wax based shoe polish in the tin works well. I used to use devcon and marine tex but last 10+ rifles I've done for myself and people I can't tell a single difference. Comes out to about $7 a rifle.

Brownels release agent is better.

I have proof marks visible in the bedding material.
