1st camo paintjob

Okay this was my first real camo paintjob I did on my rifle. Verdict???

Just because I know I'll be asked... it's a Savage 111, 300WM, Choate Ultimate Sniper stock (personally customized in order to add adjustable cheekpiece), 30" McGowen bull barrel, Millett LRS-1, Harris Bipod. Last pic is 5 shot grouping @ 300 yds... one flier threw off my grouping. But I'll still take it

    Thankfully I'm in the northern suburbs, but when you say Lindenhurst, people go "huh?" so it's easier to say Chicago.

    I wanted to play it safe so I taped over the turrets and seams on the scope, maybe one day I'll blast the whole thing. So far I'm pleased tho. Might try a winter scheme in a few months.

    Awesome thanks for the props so far! It turned out pretty good I think. It blends in the tall grass really well... I'll have to get a few pics of that up soon.

    Keep the feedback coming!
