Re: Summer Makeover Time-Warning Gun Porn

WR,
Thanks, the full write up and photos is over in Gun photos. It's a 270wby, Douglas Premium 1-9tw on a 110 action, I just couldn't get the brass to prep scope and Duracote the brand new ViperPA. Let alone a IOR? Wow! that takes a set. Going to change from webbing on stock to gap camo with sponge affect in future. Yep, I've been impressed so far when I do my part. I've been breaking in barrel and getting a feel for powders and bullets it likes. So far 140's B.tips have been most consistant. I'll be ordering some 165's once I'm done breaking in.

    Well it looks awfully nice as it is or at least for the types of foliage/terrain we have in the west. The simpler you keep camo the more effective it is.

    On mine it's just two colors, Dark earth and Sand.

    Always go with the lightest color first and overlay the darker color(s). I strongly recommend playing with krylon till you get exactly what you want and then send it to whomever you want to have do the cerakote/durakote as is so they know exactly what you want in the end.

    Oh, the only stencil I use is a net. I couldn't find my camo netting so for this one believe it or not I just used a trout dip net.

    I apply the darker color varying the amount so that it's not consistent all the way even on an individual pass.

    In nature rarely do you have broad distinctions and clear lines, rather fading from one to the next shade or color. Where you do have sudden dramatic changes of color or tone it tends to draw eyes to that which is standing out.

    It's not a game is a serious concern! (at least on my part).... now where did I put that?!


    I'll have to stick with the tacticool as it would be the only one I can find after setting it down.


    Good shootin BTW-
