    Putting together my 338 edge and am trying to figure out a color for cerakote. I am thinking about a dark brown (in low light could be mistaken for a black, but in the sun would clearly be brown in color. Im thinking like flat dark earth) for the action, bolt handle, and barrel. Bedded in a olive john burns stock. Wondering what you guys think or if you have a picture of such a color scheme would be a huge help!

    Cerakote's website has a neat online tool that enables you to visualize different color combos. Just be aware the the color shown on your monitors may not be accurate.

    Good point Len.

    Also be aware that changing the mix ration between color and hardener will change the appearance significantly..
