Re: Scope base for a LR XP-100?
dont even bother calling Near mfg, I called them last week looking for a 20 MOA xp-100 base and he told me "too bad so sad call me back in a COUPLE years". I then called Ken Farrell and talked to Dixie "yes we have that in stock,will ship it to you today." I just recieved it and the machine work fit and finish are first rate and as an added bonus it is about half the price of Near. call Farrell at 660-438-9456.
I had a rifle made off this same reamer and have been using 160 AB's and it shoots very well, I wanted to try some higher B.C. bullets so I got some 168gr Bergers to try. they wont even touch the lands so I bought some 180gr Bergers they will work but still have a much shorter bearing surface than a 160AB. you might want to see if someone will give you a few 169.5 Wildcats before you buy some, they might not work. this reamer has a very long throat.
It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
