I just got back my factory Browning stock I sent out to Bell and Carlson to have camo dipped for my 300 Ultramag Stainless Stalker . I had it done in Mossy Oak New Break Up, and it looks great. The picures may not be the best ( I shot them with my phone ) , but for less than 100 bucks delivered, it looks absolutely perfect. My Father-in-Law had one done 2 plus years ago and it still looks new, so I trust this will be just as durable. I know you can't repeatedly poor solvent on it , but it seems to hold up to brush scrapes really well. I added a Limbsaver pad and nickel swivel studs, and topped it with an 4200 Elite 2.5-10 x50 . It shoots a consistent 1 moa with factory Remington 180gr Scirrocos . Basically, it'll get'r done !

im in the process of saving for one, the wife is due in mid june with child no3 so money could be tight this summer, but with the tax stimulus deal and our tax return we may do ok, i may have to borrow  a scope to put on the 7rum so i can hunt with it this fall but after xmas i should be able to buy one for it. we will see how good of a summer i have.

Got 3  myself ( 14 , 11 and 10 ) ..Nothing cooler that when my oldest took his first deer. He whacked a 10 pointer after missing a doe earlier that day when he was 10 ...proud moment! ( not the missing the doe part )
Good Luck with the 7RUM..Those coke bottle size cartridges are just cool .

 That is an awesome camo job, Martin 3175!
 It looks fantastic, but for full camoflage effect, you really should complete the job  by doing the metal and the scope, too.
 Unfortunately, it probably won't look as good as it does now...

It kinda looks like a Browning Mountain Ti  now.. I kinda like it as is , but it would help to reduce any reflection of the stainless.
I mentioned dipping the scope to the Mrs and she was good enough to let me know I wouldn't be able to swop it around with another scope anymore. I have a bad habit of switching optics around between rifles.

That looks good, better than most of the factory browning camo.
