Wood Stock going hunting...
Okay, so I've decided that I'm taking my CZ527 (7.62 x 39) on my Elk hunt. Yup 7.62 for Elk.
This rifle has become my favorite over the last couple of weeks.
I'm concerned that I'll get caught in weather and wondered if I should do anything to the stock before taking it out there. I'm going to be out for three days, then if I don't get lucky I'll be out for another three the following weekend.
I have sealed the barrel channel and interior with True Oil which I think will work out okay. However there is very nice, sharp checkering on this stock and I'z wondering if water will get in through the cut lines? I'm wondering if I should hang this stock up and pseudo-plastic coat it with True Oil... Ideas? do I need to not worry about it so much?
Also I have a deluxe canvas case for it, perhaps I should waterproof that too?
What do you guys do in preparation if using traditional blue and wood rifles?
