Load Development for the 284 Win XP-100

This XP was built specifically for hunting. Eric Wallace (Nawakwa Accuracy) built it.
Developing a load for this was way overdo, but I had time in the middle of the day to shoot.
It would have been better with no mirage to fight with in early morning or late afternoon. But I have a good idea what it will do in less than ideal.
All shooting was done off of a bi-pod and small leather field bag. I was shooting at 100 yards.
I had a really great group with 51.0 grains of H-4350, but I forgot to take a picture. Just one large hole! A blackbird interrupted things...
Bullet 162 A-Max

Ernie, That is a great looking XP. Isn't that a Taylor trigger poking out of the bottomside? Great groups! Dan

Yes it is a Dell trigger.
Shot it 485 and 704 yesterday.
Turned in a three shot 1/4 MOA group at 704 yards off a bi-pod.
Yes, I had good conditions.

Ernie, do you have the exact model of that Weaver base? It doesn't look like the Weaver #70.

I'm needing something similar to your's.

Nice shooting. I like the gun. Very similar to what I'm wanting my XP to look like.

What contour is that Krieger? Or at least muzzle diameter?


Regards,
Rog

.611 @ the muzzle.

It is a SSK TSOB base.

Re: Load Development for the 284 Win XP-100

I'm pleased with the groups I shot, considering I had bad mirage and I was shooting off of a bi-pod. Spectacular? You are correct, they are not.
I just missed your scope question.
I responded to a few posts, but I was out of town on Wednesday and Thursday at a LR shooting school.
Group shooting at 100 is boring to me, but I like my loads to be in the 1's and .2's when developing loads in good conditions.
If I can do that off of bi-pod, I am even more happy.
You may just whip my tail at 100 yards from the bench
I have been beat before and I will be beat again
It is not a plex reticle.
It is Holland's all MOA ART Reticle. I had the windage CDS turret added.
I am glad you got the information you wanted from Leupold.
They have some good folks there.
I'm not sure why you seem to have the desire to challenge me or down my equipment. Did I somehow offend you?
I am not a fan of the Striker, because I do not like their center-grip trigger.
Not light enough for what I want to do.
You won't have that problem with the Target action.
I hope you have a better day.

I wont forget your kind help in the future when I surpass your antiquated, outdated Remington actions with the Savage target actions. Too bad we live so far away from each other because Id challenge you to a shot-off at 100 yards even with a puny 3x12 magnification Burris!
PS.those groups arent that spectacular after all, I got better groups from my stock XP 221 in the 60s!
Best regards,
SSP
