Over the years I have tried all of the above. The problem I have with the spray or paint on release agents [although they work] is that they are thicker and vary in thickness more than two coats of wax that have been buffed off.
For the best fit I use Kiwi clear or Johnsons Paste wax. The wax has always given me a easy, clean release with no clean up afterward.

The thing about using wax is that it doesn't build up with multiple coats. The only place a second coat will stay is where you missed with the first coat.

Bow string wax wiped thin has worked for me. And shoe polish.

I have Glass Bedded 30 + rifles and have had inconsistent results with each and every one UNTIL I stated using good old PAM- spray it on and let it set while you are mixing up your bedding compound

Another vote for Kiwi neutral shoe polish. Some of the stuff that comes with kit is nothing more than K1 kerosene.

Hornady one shot spray case lube is easy to use and has worked well for me. Use it liberally.

I've always used Johnson's Paste Wax. Works extremely well.

Devcon 10110 steel putty is the standard for bedding

Anyone try Preparation-H for a tight fit? Al wondered to himself.

Talking

Might work.

True story: I had an older cousin, now deceased, that swore by it for fever blisters. Said they healed right up. I just took her word for it.

I use Johnson's wax for the release agent, but long ago I was told to use the Devcon Aluminum putty instead of the steel putty. It is actually stronger than the steel putty! It is all that I've ever used for bedding rifles.

No matter what you choose, it needs to be super slick, and able to dry. The thinner the better. Too thick of a wax will just make the fit sloppy and no consistent. Even actual bedding release agent will leave a film that needs to be peeled off when done, which means a slight gap. Its worked for years by many, but there are other better ways today that give you a better action to bedding seat that is solid.
