Re: building first SP! help please

Ok guys! Thank you a bunch for all the help and info! Another quick question and I will leave you alone for a while. What's the best caliber xp to build off of? Or is there a custom action that clones a xp and just uses the center grip trigger linkage?

    Ok guys, might be stupid question but where do you have the best luck finding XPs for your builds? Kicking myself for not buying a 221fireball a guy offered me for 550

    Patience and steadfastness is the key.
    If you can find a XP for $550 or under is a good deal today.

    Most are being sold in the $625.00 to $695.00 mark. Gunbroker has a few on it. Just have to look around for them.

    I had a carpenter tell me once " The only way to spell 'COOL' is with dollar bills". This applies to guns. Patience will get you a base xp for $650 delivered from Gunbroker. There are several 7BRs in UTAH for $700. They punch out to 7-08 or 284Win easily. Rebarrel to 6.5x284 easily to. WSM and SAUM cartriges add $$$ for the bolt conversion. 400 yards is easily attainable with conventional optics and cartriges. Brakes, high dollar scopes, big cartrige conversions enable the range to be streched, with the next $2000 gone quickly. This is based on my own experience. I hunt with a JDJ that will reliably hit and dispatch game to 400. Accuracy is 1/2 min. and remains stable at much longer range, but terminal velocity will not expand bullets beyond 500. I currently have a 6.5x284 xp 100 in the works to strech some things out distance wise. Serious Investment. As they say,costs less than a snowmobile or a boat, to keep it in perspective.
