    I am having my stockade stock painted and I really like this color, I think their tan is to light and their earth brown is to dark, would this be like a weatherby brown?

    Looks to me like the military "Field Dark earth"
    I have a couple of things done in it.
    It seems to go to the brown side when placed next to browns/tans , but goes to a green tint when near other greens/shadows...kind of like in your pics.

    A close match is the Rustoleum [IIRC] in Nutmeg
