You are right there! I got 2840 w/105s in a 26", 95s went 3005mv, and 70s 3400+.

Neat round it sounds like. How is your accuracy? What scope you using? That in an XP also? Thanks.

I have an rear grip XP, that has been having a new stock being prepared for it, but this is a MOA Maximum (Falling block action/interchangeable barrels).
Scope is a Leupold VX-3 LR/T 8.5-25
The first and only time to date I have shot it beyond 200 yards, was at 500 on steel (3-shots 1.25 inches) no sighters off of a bi-pod.
Here is the post I made it about it and it has pics as well:
McGowan barrel, MOA Maximum SP & Bergers=Great Combo
I am running it real hard right now and plan to back it off some next time around.

Nice, BIG antelope you killed there! Was that a cow elk, different bbl?

Friend long ago, had a 22" carbine MOA, 6.5BR, shot one hole groups, let him sell it for a song....seemed a pain to load/shoot w/safety design, etc...but regret not buying it ever since, trigger great too. Thanks for sharing and good hunting! You're set!

Cow elk & my daughters 5x5 bull elk were both shot with a 14" 260 Rem barrel.

It takes a while to get used to running a MOA, but once you get used to it, it is not as slow as it seems at first.
