Everyone seems to use the product "Devcon" generically, when there are
actually about 10-15 different Devcon products. So which one(s) is/are
suitable for bedding a rifle action??????

I've used the 10110 Plastic Steel with good results. I've seen others use different, but this seems to be the most prevalent.

Re: Devcon......which one???

Plastic steel is the most common used, with titanium being the second most common. The titanium being twice the cost, dont know what other benifits it offers aside from maybe reduced weight, and corrosion resistance. I heard guys use stainless steel devcon for rust resistance, but then again I have never heard of plastic steel rusting. Stick with plastic steel, and get the putty. I used the 2 oz liquid and it worked just as good, but tends to run and level out on more verticle areas.

Re: Devcon......which one???

I predominantly used Devcon Steel 2 part, never had a problem and it's dark so blends in with about anything..Titanium might have less shrinkage, can't remember, never used it.
