If you have a stainless barrel are you a LOT more likely to spoke a coyote or just a little more likely to.


Or will they just go inviso and fillet your innards?

i dont think you would have to worry much as long as you take them out at around 100 yards

The only thing i would worry about is the sun hitting it and making a visible glare, which its the same with a blued barrel. I would just try to stay in the shade

you could always wrap the barrel in tape. i wrapped my stainless ruger 30-6 in camo tape and ive never had a problem at all with glare

Bead blast, tape of some kind or spray paint would make it a non issue !! up

Cheaper than dirt sells some camo wrape that won't stick to your gun, but sticks to itself. That way it's not permanent and won't leave a residue on the barrel. Its cheap too.

I just picked up a 20" RRA Varmint upper that's a little shiny, that why I asked. I'll look into the temporary wrap, I would think they could effect cooling in long shooting sessions.

some gun sites have material socks/sleeves to fit over the barrel, i used tape & it was great. have also had a beat up truck gun that the barrel was just too shiny so it was sanded down & spray painted dull camo color. or hunt at night. many easy ways to get around it.

this is just my opinion on things (gun & trucks mostly) if its all nice, shiny & pretty...its not meant to be used (shot, hunted with, taken off road)

Just keep the wind in your face and the sun to your back and it will be fine.

+1. Setup and being still are more important by far than how shiny your barrel is. Relax and go calling, that barrel won't matter!
