    Cool can of rattle, ready for battle

    Alright...5 cans of rattle I should say. This is my 700 in .308. I'll be upfront this was an aesthetic job--all I do is punch holes in paper so the camo rules weren't as important to me as they are to some of you all. I started with black and added deep forest green, army green, and khaki (rustoleum camo line of product), then I darkened the whole thing a little with a super light coat of the dark green. I did this because I have never liked the mossy oak look (again, it could be the most effective pattern out there but this was more of an art project than a functional exercise). I used some palm fronds as stencils (I live in Florida) and hit it with a few coats of matte clear and 1200 then 2500 grit to smooth it out). Im pretty happy with the results and my friends think I'm the coolest but I thought I'd post some pics here to see what you guys think. I'm new to the forum and having a blast.

    and the obligatory range shot...

    an afternoon at my indoor--I think the paint job really helped my accuracy!

    I like it alot! I really like the sharp lines on it. It looks alot like my rifle. Of course, being in Wisconsin I had to use grass for my stencils instead of palm fronds so.... yeah.




    I just shoot paper with mine also so I wasn't concerned about the camo pattern but I wanted something that "I" liked. I wish it had a little more sharp lines though like yours does. Maybe some day I'll redo it.

    I also used Matte clear over the entire job to help protect it. Looks great and yes... the paint job does help your accuracy. I read it on the internets.
