    The rifle cover was not coming out the way I wanted it in my head. Then I just messed around with tying jute on some netting.

    I'd be happy with it.

    Do you think it looked okay? I could see the stainless in a few areas under the ghillie. I didn't want to keep piling it on. I'm thinking that the rifle needs to be either camo tape wrapped or cerakoted to subdue and lessen the total amount of material to cover and conceal the profile.

    Put a few strands in the areas you feel need it and call it good.

    That's actually a pretty good wrap. My advice would be to wrap up around your sunshade all the way back to your front scope mount, take it outside and check it in direct sunlight. Stainless can be a pain to subdue, if you decide on cerakote, be mindful of the environment your using the rifle in when choosing patterns and colors,because its permanent.

    ...I would suggest some Krylon on that stainless.

    Step #1: Get a couple rattle cans of camouflage paint and get busy.

    Step #2: Skip the garnish.

    Based on the coloring of the environment here in Louisiana, I would go with a light color when it came to cerakote. I think it would be easier to cover a lighter color with darker than the other way around, but I could be wrong. I'm a little unsure about the krylon spray paint. I'm not sure I would want to try it. I would consider spraying certain areas of the scope before I would the rifle. I appreciate the pointers, and have learned more about how a wrap is actually supposed to be made with a little more research. I was doing it wrong from the start. I guess it's a true saying "it's a work in progress".

    huh?

    WHY?

    Sure, Krylon is not really very "go fast" or "tactical", but it is cheap. It is cheap in both $$, and it is cheap in effect: Krylon will allow you to try whatever you want, and if you don't like what you see, salvation is only an acetone swab away.

    I personally know tons of guns that have a "rattle can" paint job and are about as "go fast" as you can get. Why would you spend a bunch of money to make a gun look pretty so you can throw it around and hit in on things in the worst places imaginable? Melonite then rattle can, repeat as needed.
