    Smear of grease works a treat. I havnt dome a remington but quite a few other plastic stocks. Drilling some holes in the plastic to lock the bedding is a good idea.

    Kneedit metalic works really well to, drys in 5minutes. Need to put vaseline or mold release on the steel work to get it back out again.

    I have used international brand epoxy (boat builders epoxy) with the light weight filler powder on a couple of hunting rifles, seems to work ok. Havnt used JB Weld. Lots of things will work as mold release

    Brush in some kiwi shoe polish, a light coating is enough. Clean afterwards with wd40 comes of easy.

    No never used jb, but have done them with straight araldite, devcon, and brownells bedding compound. Devcon is i think similar to the jb weld. Araldite and the brownells seemed easier to use, a bit more liquid and a long set time.

    I bedded a 22 with JB weld. Used shoe polish as a release agent, worked well.
    This is the stuff.

    There's a thread on here somewhere covering how I did it.

    I love jb weld. Bed everything with it. To get it to stick to a tupperware stock can be tricky though. You'll need to create mechanical locks in the bed area by drilling holes horizontally into the side of the stock and perhaps adding screws to bed around etc. Shoe polish for release agent, don't be stingy with it.

    Avoid 5-minute setting compounds. Less forgiving of delays.
