Re: Need advice for XP build

The 6x47 lapua is a good one I have been shooting one for a few years with good accuracy.

Re: Need advice for XP build

Ewallace, what kind of performance are you seeing? What are your weapon's specs? What kinda use does she get? Thanks for the opinion. Been doing quite a bit of reading and really think the 6x47 is the ticket. Looked into the 6SLR a bit and liked what I read there too.

Re: Need advice for XP build

My xp has a Lawton 8t barrel 18" with a brake and I am shooting the Berger 105 g bullets I can remember the velocity. I have shot it out to 1500 yards. I also have a custom SP that I shot in 11 pound class in 1000 yard br it has shot 10 shots just over 10" in competition finishing 1st place with rifle shooters. Both SP were smithed by me.

The XP-100 (bottom) has a 15-7/8" barrel in 260 Rem. It can deliver 123 gn Lapua Scenars supersonic at 1000 yards.

Re: Need advice for XP build

Awesome pics. Love em! Sounds like you guys got me goin in the right direction! TY! Lou your XP looks alot like what I'm shooting for. I'm also goin with a mcm center grip and a similar barrel length. What diameter did your muzzle finish at? Mine's gonna finish at .900 and I'm wondering if I might have gone a little too fat and it may limit my muzzle brake options later, if I choose to get one installed down the road.
