Well, first suggestion, spend $10 on a SC membership and look at the ghillie section. I give some suggestions, and even provide pictures. :D

Now, to answer the question a bit better than that. You do not want to permanently attach anything to your rifle. The camo you will apply needs to be temporary, and the easy what to do that is to wrap the rifle with several strips of burlap of various colors. You do not want to wrap stock to barrel, it can effect harmonics, if you have no choice, do it losely. Its fine to go scope to stock. You'll want to go as far back on the rifle as necessary to blend with your ghillie. Usually to right in front of the trigger guard is good, but you'll have to experiment. There are some other things you can do also that might work, like camo netting, etc. But I prefer burlap strips.

Yes, thats the link to membership signup.

The ghillie section is done
Mil-dots section will be done tomorrow
Advanced ballistics and members gallery are up after that.

After these first few pages, the rate of new content being released will slow down a bit as I get back on the sniper sim project.

Of course, the montly newsletter is part of the membership also, and no banner ads when logged in :D and some more things coming in the future

In terms of the jute/burlap, yes, you can get that from walmart or other fabric locations. There are generally several different colors from which to chose. You can leave some long pieces to "Sway" but not too long, they'll just get in the way and cause problems.

I never used strips longer than 5"

They get caught up in the bush is they are too long. One trick we used with strips:

Hang the rifle vert so the strips are flowing one direction, perferably away from barrel toward stock. Start at the top and spiral some hollow 550 around to secure the strips in place "flat" against the rifle. Put a good knot on the end. Party time? Cut the 550.

I pefer'ed to use brown strips as I can color them with marker / paint to match the mission, or use the stripts to attach vegitation.

USe jute instead of burlap for making suites. Burlap takes a crap load of tiem to fray and you loose A LOT of burlap. Jute just is much easier.
