my first dura-coat project

this is a 300 rum i built for one of my friends and the first dura-coat i have used seemed like it turned out great just hope it is tuff

also want to put a plug in for shawn and his muzzle break it works great on this rifle and i also have one on my 7mm wsm and both rifles have very little kick and little to no muzzle rise

    he wanted to shoot 160-180 grn bullets out of it so i loaded up a few 165 btips i had around we found about where the rifle was starting to get a little warm i think it was 102grn retumbo and shot 2 three shot groups that avged 3655fps i shot one that was around .4 and he shot one that measured .291 which he said was the best group of his life
    i am very anxious to work up a load for it when he gets some time

    NICE.... what sort of spray setup did you use? How about reducer or any other additives? Thanks for the info.... I am going to order the stuff soon.

    i used a very small amount of reducer probably did not have to but i was having a pressure problem and thought the paint was to thick but ended up being a plugged hose
