I purchased a rough cut semi inletted stock blank from Richards Rifle Stocks in Kalifornee!
This stock was purchased to replace the butt ugly synthetic stock on my Ruger 77/17 HMR! The finish inletting is done and now its time to make it purdy. I don't want a shinny finish but rather a dull oil finish. What would you guys recommend to use to accomplish this? Would Linseed oil accomplish what I'm after? Would it seal the wood and keep the elements out?
