Lilja makes a special 20 inch XP barrel if that winds your clock.

Thank guys, will the 6.5X284 be able to be a repeater or single shot? BB, the 20 barrel sound pretty tempting.

I would use it as a single shot, so you can throat it properly

Thanks for the help. The only thing I have on the way for it is a new Huskemaw scope.

"I am after something to get my feet wet." "so I can go out and shoot to see if I even like it."

Howdy , These guys as always give excellent advice ...But ...I take it that you are very new to all this ..
You mentioned you have a 260 Rem in a XP100r .I'd suggest to you , to see if the gun will shoot good groups at 100 yds .I'd have someone sweeten up the trigger , load the lighter bullets , and play some before spending a bunch of money . The 260 is a very good cartridge , and will shoot way out there .
Just my 2 cents
