338 xp-100 project

UPS dropped off a 9.3 twist 338 20" fluted Broughton barrel today. I am going to use it for a XP-100 build for elk hunting in Montana this fall. I have a 330 Dakota reamer I am going to chamber the barrel in the morning. I also have a Jewell trigger with bottom safety 40 MOA base to mount a 3.5x10x50 Leupold scope and a walnut rear grip stock I am going to use for this build.

Very cool! I have a 338/284 XP100R with a 16" barrel and 3-12x Burris scope. It shoots the 180 gr Ballistic Tip bullets ~2400 fps with Varget. Great gun with a hefty kick.

I chambered the barrel today and installed the brake I desided I wanted the barrel 18" to make it easier to carry in the mountains on the 330 dakota here is a pic


I am planning on using this for a wilderness backpacking hunt in Montana where I will be packing in and setting up camps along the way. This will be very rugged country with most of it being off trail so I am trying to keep the weight down a little.
