New toy

I just got it from the smith I am thinking it will take varmints out to 500 yards [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img] if I do my part I have been doing some load development out to 200 yards. It is an XP 100 with a 15 1/2" Lilja 1-12 twist 1.200 HV Lapua 22BR tight neck 2oz trigger leupold 12x.I have a 7-08 barrel also.

    crow mag,
    That's a sweet little rig! I've been thinking of having a custom barrel built for my encore pistol in the same configuration as yours, please keep us posted on your results with it.
