    That's a very cool looking set up! I love the barrel and the brake.

    What's the total weight on your setup? I just finished a 338/375 Ruger on a Savage Striker and the finished weight is 9.5lb. Your barrel looks like a heavier contour though.

    Also, have you chronographed any loads yet? I'm guessing that the 330 Dakota and the 338/375 Ruger will be pretty close in performance. In fact I'm using 330 Dakota data as a base point for my load data.

    The XP-100 is just under 9 pounds with the bi pod and scope I am getting 2880 fps with the 225 accubond bullet I am a big fan of the 338 for deer and elk hunting.

    Wow! That's faster than I thought it would be. I was estimating 2700-2750. Would you mind sharing your load? The 225 Accubond is one of the bullets I plan on testing. Right now I'm working with the 225 TTSX.
