Brownells Acraglas epoxy bedding kit can help a lot to improve the consistency of shots on an old rifle with a loose-fitting or soft wood stock. Acraglas is a VERY strong and rigid industrial epoxy, that seems much harder when dry than the epoxies that you can buy at a hardware store. The kit comes with brown coloring powder to approximately match the epoxy to the wood stock color. Black powder may also be included; I don't recall. There is also a similar Acraglas GEL kit available that is more appropriate if you have a very loose stock or large voids in the stock to fill.

However, I would only recommend this Acraglas kit for someone who is handy in the shop and carefully follows directions. This is not a one-hour project. You need to follow the directions exactly and use the release compound properly. If you make mistakes you can either epoxy your gun's receiver to the stock, or wind up having to grind or sand down excess hard epoxy. One alternative is to find an inexpensive wood replacement stock, say on an auction site or at a gun show, and do a practice job on that stock first.

You'll also really need two well padded gun vises or shop vises to carefully hold the stock as you work (padded ski vises will also work). Or you can improvise with some padded wood blocks screwed or glued together on some plywood.

If you are not up to careful shop work, then epoxy bedding a rifle it is a job better left to a gunsmith. If the gun is very expensive, then in any case I would have a gunsmith do the bedding.

Another thing to consider before buying a bedding kit is that many companies now make fairly inexpensive rigid polymer replacement stocks for many rifles. You can often find these used on auction sites and at gun shows. You may get satisfactory improvement just by switching to one of these stocks (and saving the nice-looking original stock for if you sell the gun.)

Acraglas has long been a staple in the accurizing community. The kit comes with everything you need to get started and the instructions are quite clear if you're a first-timer. I've used Acraglas several times over the years but, as of late, it seems to be too thin to work with easily. In the future, I plan to switch to DevCon Plastic Steel bedding compound.

Great kit for the money. The user must read the directions and follow the directions showing patience. Don't rush the job or you might have a big mess on your hands. The end product will be just as good if not better than you would get from the average gun smith.
