You could always get both forends, so regardless of barrel length you are good to go.

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"

    That is the way I did it.
    Sort of the "cry once" mindset

    Hate to say it but your right. However you are also the reason I'm crying I've wanted to customize my xp for a couple years now and at the same time seeing all your awesome xps. I couldn't take it anymore. So I gotta lot of crying coming. I just need to decide on a caliber. I like 6.5x284 but I'm afraid of short barrel life plus I prefer a heavier bullet. That 284 win is very interesting to me but i dont know much about it. That might be what i like about it. Or just a plain old 7mm mag. Hard to go wrong with that. All 3 are caliber a I don't own so I guess all will be fun.

    The 284 Winchester is just the 6.5 – 284 necked up.
    If you want horsey: 7 saum, 7 WSM, 7LRM, and 7 Dakota
    I would stay away from a belted case if it was me

    You are only looking for 600 yards, and the 284 Win does that.

    The more I read about it the more I like it. What would you consider an optimal barrel length. 18"?
