    There isn't a good kit, in my opinion.


    Devcon 10110 Plastic Steel Putty
    Popsicle sticks and/or wooden shishkabob skewers
    Entire Box of 50 pairs of Nitrile Gloves
    Lots of paper towel and/or little rags
    Small bowl of mineral spirits
    Bottle of NuFinish Car wax
    Entire Box of GOOD Q-tips
    One straight razor blade and/or an exacto-knife set
    A roll of 1" and a roll of 2-3" Blue 3M painter's tape.
    A container of Acetone
    Paper plates
    Kids Modelling clay
    Newspaper
    Latex tubing
    Slave bolts
    Small table fan to blow the fumes from the chemicals away from you
    Timer or watch
    Electronic reloading scale that can be tared
    Dremel tool with appropriate bits to remove stock area to be bedded
    Pillars, if desired
    Piloted counter-bore bit or forstner bit, if installing pillars
    Small flat-bladed optical screwdrivers can be handy

    --Wear old clothes.
    --Do not attempt this job on your kitchen counter for the first time.
    --Do not be stingy with the gloves.
    --Do not be stingy with the wax. Do not rush the wax drying.
    --Wax and/or tape EVERYTHING you don't want epoxy on.
    --Don't mix the epoxy until you're truly ready to go down to the last detail.
    --Other than backing the screws off a 1/4 turn at 4 hours, don't touch the rifle for 24 hours after gluing it. Just don't.

    The PREP and CLEANUP for this job take about twice as long as the actual process.

    Except for the Devcon and the pillars, most of this list should be available between your home town Walmart and hardware store.

    Amen on the Devcon and other kit mentioned. I do like Kiwi neutral shoe polish for my release agent and adjustable pillars.

    Great list, Nate.
    You just picked up a hitcher...a prisoner of the white lines on the free way.

    I second the Devcon 10110 and Kiwi neutral shoe polish. Worked perfect when I bedded my .308.. Thing about that Devcon is its not runny. It stays where you put it, and its as tough as nails.

    My bedding kit:

    Put rifle in box.
    Send rifle to TS Customs in Miller, SD.
    Have Travis put a world class bed job in there, which he will stand behind, for an outstanding price.
    Receive rifle, professionally bedded and stress free.
    Smile.
