Need Help with McM A-5 Stock Color

Well I'm trying to make a decision that is gonna affect me for many years. The color of my new McMillan A-5 stock. At first I was going to go with 80% black 20% grey, but now I'm thinking about 80/20 black/OD green with duracoated metal. The stock has been on order for about 2 months now, and I'm probably running out of time to make any changes. If any of yall have a stock, McMillan or not, in any color combination that you could post that would help me decide, I would really appreciated it.
Thanks.

Oh by the way, the new rifle is a 338 EDGE w/ a 30 " Hart barrel, & a Nightforce 5.5x 22 NP R-1 scope.

Thanks again

    Here is some info, for what it's worth.

    The McMillan A5 on their website is 80% Black, 10% grey and 10% White. I ordered this color as well.

    Here is the link to their A5
    Custom rifles, fiberglass stocks, military and police training, tactical and competition gear, hunting accessories.

    Here is a picture of mine

    I forget the color make up but it was built bt Joe Starns of Long Shot Percision in Conrad Mt. If you lie it I will get the info from Joe or maybe he will chime in here.

    I wrestled with the decision, and was going to go with green. But finally decided on a straight black/white/grey to match all the dark metal.

    I like your stock, if you find out what mixture you had them make for it, let us all know.

    Peacock,
    I was wondering why you used 4 rings, instead of just the normal 2. Added insurance?, strength? I've seen that before but never asked why.
    Thanks
