Have no problem with 40 degree bevel angle on a bowl gouge if it works for shape of bowl you are turning. 40 degrees bevel angle on a bowl gouge very popular with many woodturners. Think you will find anyone that has been turning bowls for awhile will have more than one gouge and different bevel angles on them.

Stop short of recommending a bevel angle instead say angles can go from 40 to 65 degrees. Use both fingernail and side grind on my bowl gouges and never used gouge with bevel angle over 60 degrees. I have 70 degree angle on all my scrappers because that works for me.
