Don't forget you can always stain the wood before you oil finish. Just make sure you get pure stain, not stain+finish. But be aware that depending on the previous finish the stain might take unevenly if you don't sand very deep what's not always an option. Good luck
I used to love being able to hit hard at 1000 yards. As I get older I find hitting a mini ram at 200 yards with the 22 oddly more satisfying.
