    You're correct. Like most do (I assume), all the metal gets a good coat of mold release agent including any metal the Play Doh is in contact with. The longest it's in contact with any metal is 24hrs in the stuff I bed. Anyway, many years later no evidence of problems exist.

    Good shootin'. -Al

    I've used Play Doh for over 20 years and never had a corrosion problem. The stuff dries out and shrinks so fast that I let it sit for two days then I just hit it with a blast of air and everything pops out.

    Hot Glue!!

    I've tried something new to me of late. I just bedded 3 rifles over the last week or ten days using hot glue rather than clay, silly puddy, play dough, etc. All I can say is, I have no idea why I didn't try this years before now. It cleans up easier than anything I've used. Most small pieces in small holes etc, just pop right out or I flick it out of the finished bedding. It trims up pretty well too. I'm yet to see a down side. Surely someone has done this before! I'd love to hear why more people don't use it.

    edit to add...For large voids in stocks, I stuff it mostly full of paper towel before squirting in the hot glue.

    Also, I'm sure there are some super duper grades of hot glue out there by now. I just used cheapo Dollar Store stuff. The good stuff might actually stick! Probably not the best for this use.

    I thought so, too. No idea why I didn't think of this a long time ago. It works great, though!
