Re: New XP-100 7mm SAUM by Mac's Gun

I used the 7mm SAUM XP for a benchrest match last week and used it at 500 yards.
I was prone in the dirt with my Harris bi-pod and small rear bag. I made the shoot-off, but came in third.
I missed a wind change that would have put me in second, but I still don't think I would have got first place.

I was pleased that I am shooting this gun from the prone position to be competitive with others while they are shooting from the bench.

I also used this XP for the roving field course and tied for first place with it.
Again, Chuck @ Mac's Gunworks has outdone himself on this one!

Thanks Ernie, you guys mean alot to me with all the help and support. Without people like you my gunshop wouldn't be where it is, I promise that especially after being robbed last summer. Thanks to everyone who has stood by me with my shop and those that have helped to get me closer to putting my feet back on the ground.
GOD BLESS all of you,
Mac

Re: New XP-100 7mm SAUM by Mac's Gun

It is a Dell trigger (Dell Taylor).
They do not have a safety, so you MUST carry the gun unloaded.
Mine are set somewhere between 3-6 ounces.
I have 4 of them, that is how much I like them. Use them on a 284 Win, 6.5 Leopard (WSM), 7mm SAUM, and then my fourth one will go on a 223 (In process).
You will need to take the escutcheon off of the Rem XP trigger linkage and use it with the Dell. It is sort of a like a "U" shaped piece at the front of the trigger that attaches to the recoil lug.

IF you already have a 7-08 XP, did you want to keep that barrel? Length? Twist?
Were you planning to rebarrel?
A 284 Win, say with a 18" barrel will give you about as much MV as a 7 SAUM will with a 18" barrel when using 162-168 weight bullets.
You would not have to open up your boltface of your current bolt or purchase a new bolt for the SAUM head.
The head of the SAUM is larger than the 7-08, while the 284 Win has the same size.
If you have more questions, you can call me: 307-257-7431
