question on anchor/concrete

I wanted to know if i could use hydrolic cement to anchor bolts in concrete premanently .tapcons havent held up .and the wedge anchors have been difficult to work with in the limited size holes and not a lot of room around them.
Its for railing base right at step corner.
Any info is appreciated

Epoxy would be the best choice to hold a fastener that will not stay in its hole. Have you tried lead shields? Hydraulic cement is used for patching, not fastening things.

I've use FastPlug very often as an anchoring media in concrete. Holds extremely well. Never had a failure. It's especially good as a eye hook to chain the dog to side of building and a long leash. Be aware that it's considered a permanent item. I've used it as tie downs for equipment and as a security anchor with chain and locks.
