Any body use anything special on their beechwood stocks like a certain wax or just a soft clean rag? Thanks.

On my wood stock rifles I put several coats of Minwax floor wax, usually brown in color which goes well with normal stain colors on most stocks. I have also used a wax that was developed for the Royal Museum of History that I believe is called Renaissance wax, it' makes a super tough crystal clear coat over the stock. Between times when I handle the guns I use a silicon cloth to wipe down the action and the stock.
This is what has worked for me for many years now, hope it helps.

Thanks much! I'll give these a try. It seems to me that these beechwood stocks need a little protection but I was hesitant about what to use. Thanks again.

Ron,

Howard's Feed-N-Wax comes close or maybe even tops it. Its a Wood Polish & Conditioner w/Beeswax and Orange Oil. I get it at Lowe's.

Hope you are going to make it to Heflin,

Pat

I'd love to see you guys (and girl) again, but my FT days are largely behind me.

Do plan to shoot Leo's awards match this Sunday though (weather permitting). Hope you guys get decent weather this week-end, but at times like this it's reassuring to have the level of experience running the show that y'all have up yonder.

Shoot 'em up, Amigo.

Boiled Linseed Oil.
Once a day for a week
Once a week for a month.
Once a month for a year.
Once a year for the rest of your life.

A tablespoon of BLO is enough for the entire stock.
Rub it in with your fingers until it dries.
When it feels warm to the touch you are doing it right.

Stay safe
