I'm going to use devcon plastic steel putting 10112 to bed a rear tang/recol lug, but also do the entire barrel channel of a stock that is excessively opened up (as in almost 1/4" clearance on each side of the barrel before the channel wall begins). My plan is to apply copious amounts of devcon in the barrel channel, then with a taped up barrel the whole length screw it in, not only to do the normal bedding areas, but to create a full bedding that fills the gap between the barrel and the barrel channel wall. I will then scrape the top so it sits flush and can be sanded nicely to just create a nice line of bedding along the barrel. once the tape is removed from the barrel, it will then have enough clearance to remain fully floated as well. this should also help avoid warping as it is a kiln dried stock which will be used on the hill in the rain.
however,,,I digress,,,I need the devcon to be black or brown to look somewhat decent, has anyone ever tried mixing in a dye with devcon and if so, what results did get and can you recommend a decent dye? also, would brown even work with a chemical grey base, probably not right? just black I imagine.
