First, welcome to LRH.
Center-grips involve Strikers (semi-centergrip), orginal XP and the H-S Precision.
I have also taken deer and antelope with a 7-08 XP out to 500 and a tad further. Never lost one with it either that I can remember.
If I had to do it over again, I would bump the capacity up.
For 500 yards on deer I would lean to the 284 Win. family or something based on the WSM.
25 caliber on up to 30 would be my thoughts.
Personally, I like the 6.5 and the 7mm.
Custom XP's are not usually cheap.

I don't think you can go wrong with a 7mm-08 no matter what gun it is in. I really like my 7mm-08 in my 15" Encore. Ammo is east to find,It is priced right if you are on a tight budget. The barrels are easy to change out if you are not a gunsmith. Lots of aftermarket parts around. I am recoil sensitve (sissy) and I don't mind the kick of this round in a hand gun.There are a ton of these around so you should be able to find somebody to let you shoot one before you buy. I personally don't shoot past 200yds with mine because I am not that good of a shot with it yet. I f I sound like a T/C homer I guess I am but they are cheap and all bot one I have ever owned shoot good right out of the box...Jim

Tom has a point about the HS's. IMO they have the finest stock I've ever shot.
I have an Anschutz that was modified to center grip and it has the HS stock.
For silhouettes I prefer a center grip but for hunting the rear grip works too since I use a bipod or shooting sticks.

My 7mm Lazzeroni

Here's my custom XP in a 7mm Lazzeroni it's definitly a shooter. I shoot 168gr Bergers at 2850fps and less than an 1" at 300yds. It was built by Greg Tanel.
