Any specific brand recommendations? This project will mainly be used for target practice so the "warn off critters" doesn't concern me
I used two fingers...you can feel it get warm, when you have used the right pressure....it takes about me about ten minutes to do a stock... then its almost dry in 30 minutes , but its not.... I wait an hour, then apply again... after five coats... five hours, I let it sit overnight... the next day I lightly scuff with OOO steal wool, then a tack cloth, then five more coats, over the next five hours, then over night, when I have it were I want it. I use 1500 wet n dry, ( wet ) wipe it down, tack cloth, then I thin final coat... let it sit for a few days before you remount the action. If you are doing pillar and post, or glass bedding.. you do this first, and make sure the gun shoots like it should.. before you do the final finish.Evil-Twin, Did you just rub in the tru oil with your finger or a cloth, or did you use the spray version?
BTW, that is a really nice stock;
