    You should get about 3 bedding jobs out of a small tub, I can't remember how much the weight was, the tubs are about 25 quid, make sure you use a good release agent otherwise you won't get it apart good luck. Yes it can be stored no problem.

    I've only ever come across 500gm tubs.

    As above - depending on extent of the job etc, will do 2-3 rifles. Dont tend to get to store it for long, but def does 3 months with lid back on tight.

    I bought the complete kit bedding kit from ballistic studies. Its devcon for one rifle exact amounts no quess work. Release agents moilding clay, and if you need , nathan foster , the guy who runs it can talk you through the process if your not sure of anything. Otherwise he does some very good instructional vids on the subject. Post takes about 10 ten days from NZ.
    ​good luck

    Applying it in a warmer environment makes it a bit runnier but it can reduce work time.

    This may seem like a really silly question but I'm sure someone more experienced can answer it (maybe Jager SA?). Can other compounds be used to bed rifles?I know Devcon and Acraglas are the top two but what about other epoxy based fillers or even car body filler? Do Devcon and Acraglas have certain characteristics that make them ideal for the job, tough, resistant to compression, not brittle etc that aren't found in other products?

    I think you'll find any 2 part epoxy will do the job, Devcon, Marine Tex and Agri glass are all trade names people associate with the job.

    Stuck for a quick bedding job, skint as well, look no further than Plastic Padding, the hard type.
    Did my CZ527 a few years ago now, even stuck the pillars in with it, worked great and is still going strong.
