603, I just checked my can of MinWax -- It says "Finishing Wax".
Maybe were wrong!! But guess what I'll continue to be wrong by using poly, varnishes, and linseed oil for my stocks.
I'll use the finish that I think thats appropriate for the gun. My Lyman Great Plains Rifle has a oil finish and every six months or so 6-8 drops of linseed oil gets rubbed into the stock. The varnish on the 870 gets JPW as do the Ithaca's
