    I use nothing but heat.

    Filler can seperate and if you sand through the backstrap after filling to acheive your desired results, that doesnt leave much holding things together.

    I have seen this happen at a training school done by a very well known grip reduction company.

    After seeing this, I decided to try a different approach.

    Nothing, not even heat. It was placed in a mill and material was removed a few thousanths at a time until the 15 round mag just clicked into place.
