fng question on stocks

1127 7
I know this topic has been addressed many times, I just can't seem to find the answer I'm looking for. My question is this- I have a new M1A with walnut stock. Yesterday I applied 4 coats of Behr tung oil finish, buffing with an old t-shirt between coats. I did not sand the stock at all, should I have? I was really hope the grain would show more than it has.
Do I just need to add more coats? Right now it has a nice matte finish, but like I said, I'd like to see more grain from the stock.
BTW this is a Boyd's stock.
