338 lapua makeover pics

Hey guys just some pics of my new paint job,the rifle was originally all black duracoat,this is my first time using cerakote and i must say it finishes beautifully,i was nervous at first but i am really happy with the finish,i made the switch to this paint because duracoat was getting too hard to find downunder,colours are;

action-H series,graphite black
barrel-H series,satin mag
stock-C series,flat dark earth with black and desert sand splatter.

    Wow looks great! the real test for the cerakote will be around the first set of vent holes on the muzzle brake. That's the most probable spot for it to peal. I know durakote cant withstand that.
