What's the best thing for filling in screw heads or nail holes in wood
these days, before painting?
Most fillers like Pollyfilla don't give a particularly smooth finish and
often show through the paint. And can cause the screw to rust. Decorators
caulk shrinks. Car body filler is too much effort. So is there anything
better now available? Something like decorators caulk that doesn't shrink
would be purrfect.

Maybe an exterior wood filler that is like epoxy would do.
