Default Burned my M1A

Y'all might think this is absolutely crazy but I'm loving the way it turned out and it looks 10x better in person.

Got the photo off of the web and did a pyro trial run on a piece of pine.





I liked the way it came out so I went ahead and did it to the rifle.





I love the way it turned out.

I like it. Sure others won't but it's your rifle and you did a great job. You will probably have to explain why you put a rabbit on there a time or two. The youngsters no longer see bambi.

I've seen a few odd things on guns. All that matters is it means something to the owner. I didn't get it until I read the comments...Pretty cool

I've got admit, I was skeptical with the first picture but when I saw it on the rifle....I think it looks really nice. Great job and well done!

With hand loaded 168 grn Nosler custom comps it'll shoot consistently 1.25-1.5 MOA at 100, I've had some 5 shot groups at an MOA, 10 shot groups usually yield a couple flyers but most are close in there with several touching each other. It'll do the same with ballistic tips and Hornady 168 A-Max.

This rifle is a standard (guaranteed to shoot 3 MOA from the factory ) with some upgraded national match parts, shimmed gas block etc. I'm very happy with its performance. It's shot pigs, turkeys and several other critters.

Just in case someone wants the load: 168 Nosler Custom Comp, Winchester Case, WLR Primer, 41.3 grns IMR 4895, COAL 2.800
