Maybe this has been discuss before and I can't find it.

Has anyone used the Epoxy that they use in Construction to bed Anchor Bolts? For Rifle Bedding. The stuff I am talking about uses a Cauking Gun typ mechanism and mixes itself as it comes down the tube and you squirt it right into the hole. Any thoughts?

Re: Epoxy for Bedding

That description of the epoxy does not narrow it down. There are many two part epoxies that are used. What you need to look for specifically is how much the product will shrink as it cures and what its compressive strength is. If you look at devcon's website, I would say anything that is close to those specs would be ok.

ETA:
Here are some specs to compare you epoxy against
