1000 yard pistol

My only "long range" pistol is a 15-7/8" barrel XP-100 in 260 Rem. I shoot 123gn moly Lapua Scenars. I download it a bit to 2500 fps so it gives the same velocity as my 24" 6.5 Grendel Overwatch AR-15 rifle which shoots the same bullets. The Grendel is easier to shoot with considerably less muzzle blast. The XP-100's advantage is it's half the weight and easier to carry. With the same velocity they (of course) have the same tradjectory and wind deflection. They're supersonic to 1000 yards. Both are set up to shoot prone supported off bags.

The other pistols are a 17 Remington 25" TC, A 45-70 17.5" TC, and a 22 short Beretta.

Re: LRH Specialty Handguns

I found an excellent book describing the development of high speed revolver cartridges, such as the 22-32 Magnum. The development stages for both the cartridge and two different revolvers are fully explained, with drawings. It's called, "Sporting Firearms, A designer's Notebook,' available from Amazon.com The muzzle speeds were above 2000 fps, from a 7 1/2 barrel.

Re: LRH Specialty Handguns

Going to brag on my favorite stock maker, Joel Russo, and his line of both mid and rear grip stocks.

Pistol Stocks

I really like his mid grip Striker stocks about 2/3 the way down the page. I helped him make them, my guns pictures.
