Re: 300WSM Stock

Sniperjwt, that actually looks real good. Definately looks like you've done it before but I'll take your work on it. Do you mind posting some of the steps on how you did it. Awesome job.

    Did you use Krylon? I use it on my barrels, trigger guards and scopes. Here is a not so close up of my only painted rifle. It is a Savage MkII 22LR. I did paint the barrel of the middle one and bottom metal also (308 Winny). It turned out really nice. The top is a factory mod 12 Savage in 300 WSM. It had to get a new barrel. I fried the one in the picture.

    Re: 300WSM Stock

    alright i will explain exactly what i did. It is very simple actually. This is step by step. First i took the stock off of the action. Second i took a old white t shirt and cut a section out of it and put alcohol on the cloth and wiped down the whole stock. From there i was careful not to touch the stock with my hands and found a clothes hanger and hooked the stock with the clothes hanger. I then took it outside and hung it up. I took the light color that was going to be my base color and sprayed on a light coat. I then took it in the basement. (the paint says that it needs to be above 50degrees to work properly) I let it dry for about 6 or 7 minutes then took it back outside and put another coat on. I repeated this step 3 times until i got the color i wanted. After getting the color where i wanted it i let it sit about 20 minutes then went outside and got my evergreen tree branch. I hung the stock back up outside and put the branch against the stock and took the top coat color ( in this case Hunter Green) and sprayed across the branch. I repeated this step until i was happy with how much green there was on the stock. I posted a couple of pictures. First one is the paint i used. The second one is the branch i used and the third one is showing how i held the branch up against the stock while painting. I do reccomend getting a branch long enough that you can start your spraying before you get to the stock and continue spraying until you get off the other side so that you are not starting and stopping on the stock. Starting and stopping on the stock could result in uneven or sparatic spray. If you got any other questions ill try to answer them. Thanks again for all the compliments. Now i want to try to paint one that looks like treebark...... not sure how im gonna do that but the gears are turning.

    Just wanted to let you know the clear coat is on and dry. Filled the stock up with sand to even the weight of the gun. It was very front heavy before. Raised the weight up to 9lbs. Feels good now though that the weight is evenly distributed. All is left now is to buy some dies and brass and bullets and see how she shoots.

    I think you will find that the sand will help to dampen recoil as well as adding the additional weight. Sound like a plan with dies and brass. I suggest Win brass and Redding dies. That is what I am using currently. Get the Comp bullet seater if you can. Wish I would have kept it when I bought it. I traded on a full set of Redding dies. I have the Body die, Neck "S" Type, and Standard bullet seater.
