If i drill and ream a hole .0005 undersize for a 3/16 dowel pin, and want it permanent....

If i drop a drop of loctite in the blind hole, will it stop the pin from going all the way in by hydraulic lock?

Dowel pins are sized to be a press fit in an on size hole.

If you made it a "press fit" why would you use a retaining compound at all?
Drill the hole, ream the hole and install the pin with a press, you will then find it difficult to remove if this should be required if it is not a through hole.
