Tommorrow morning that xp should be on my doorstep and then it will be traveling to wyoming next week. Hurray Hurray and thanks to Ernie and Kirby for all of the help they have been and the patience they have had with me.

Kirby:
I notice that's a rifle scope on that XP. How do you get extended eye relief from that scope? Most rifle scopes have ~4" of eye relief where 'true' hand gun scopes have ~20".

Re: Couple new rigs from APS....

With good muzzle brakes LR specialty pistol shooters are going more and more with riflescopes.
I can see almost a full field of view (actually I can-but don't encourage others to imitate me) with my 7mm Dakota XP--Scope is a 6.5-20 FFP Leupold Mark 4.
200 grain Wildcat with a MV of 2700 fps.
Typically you see a full FOV get oriented and then back off a bit and hte outer FOV will go black.
But with Holland's new Radial brake and I suspect the same with Kirby's PK brakes SP shooters can safely see all or close to a full FOV.

Companies like Leupold, NF, S&B and a few others have a pretty good eye relief for high magnification scopes.

Re: Couple new rigs from APS....

There is literally no recoil to these big XPs. I was getting full view with the NF NXS 3.5-15 scope and never came close to having it touch my forhead. In fact, many rifles have a better chance at hitting my brow.

These muzzle breaks REALLY Work well on big handguns.
