    Thought I would post this project up. I am not quite done yet but needed a little break from this project. Installed the loggerhead cheek riser and then came up a paint pattern I wanted to try out. Let me know what you think. Seems like there is an endless amount of ways pattern and colors to match.

    Some stock features. Standard accustock with DBM
    Loggerhead
    Paint scheme
    Cerakote clear coat
    flush cups

    Rifle
    Savage 116
    Schneider barrel 28.5" 8 twist

    Is that a sponge job or a pattern?

    Well, technically it is a sponge job. I do test patterns with different material until I come up with a pattern I like. I then use that pattern with the paint combo I like.

    It shoots ok. .3 to .5. I have shot better with it but not consistently. I played with a ladder test last week but don't have a plan yet as to what to do with the results.
