Awesome shooting and love the XP's. I tried to go to the Mcree site those pistol stocks are awesome. I couldn't find the link once there for pistol stocks.

Re: Load Development for my 284 Win XP

It looks like on ur xp pistols with the McRee stocks that your trigger is even further back than a normal rear grip xp. I was curious as to what is needed to convert a center grip to a rear grip. I think I'm going to have to get one of the McRee stocks. I just can't find them on his website. I see the Remington 700 but now pistol stock button or something related.

He does not have that link anymore, but as far as I know he still makes a XP chassis. Email him and see.

The trigger is the same-Just any trigger that will work with a Remington 700 will work with the XP in the McRee Chassis.
You will have to remove your center-grip trigger first though to replace it will a standard trigger (rear grip)
I have used standard Remington triggers, Jewell and Kelbly with no problems.

We had several guys help me pick up steel yesterday and we did some shooting first at 775 yards.

Just got off the phone with him he is sending me info now. He did say he had a 9" or a 12" version. I'm trying to think about what barrel length is best for each length so I can figure out which size I like. I would think the 12" needs like an 18 in barrel while the 9" only need like a 15" barrel.

Next time you talk to him, tell him "Hi!" for me.

Looks like I am going to have to do more practicing after watching those videos
When it comes to the Mcree stock do you like the 9" vs the 12". Or does it depend on the barrel length. I was planning on a 12" but keep thinking maybe it is to long. I'm figuring on a barrel between 16-"18"
