60% white 30% dark grey 10% black on the farthest one. The other two are another members and I don't know the percentages on his, but it can't be different by much.

You only have to please yourself....

Those colors do remind me of the old joke "what's black and white, and red all over?"

Agreed. You're gonna want at least 60%.

70/20/10...or 70/25/5 would give you what you want, I think. eek You can change it if you get second guessing yourself, just don't wait too long.

Here's another....

50 white - 25 light gray - 25 dark gray



I've never cared for the outcome.....it seems they all run together making more of a gray stock.... reminiscent of the M40 return "smear" stocks..... while I wanted more of a white overall stock.... hence the reason for the 90% on the other one. Also, the checkering seems to make the stock more dark in those areas.

Quick fix on this one was the stripes using Whiteout. They're not on it now...didn't like that either.

While we tend to fret over colors, in the big picture, it really doesn't make any difference, but I prefer to look at a stock and say "damn, I like that"......
