I am going to start looking for a XP100 and even if its not what I want I can make it into one. Just take me a bit more money and time is all. Its that or build one from scratch using one of the Savage actions which that Idea is still in the running. I like the idea of being able to change calibers fairly easily. I kind of wanted a center grip but everyone says stay with the rear grip but time will tell. Don't know what I will get till I find it.
For field use I am a center-grip man myself.
If I all of your shooting will be from the bench then there is advantages for the rear grip for me.
Give me a holler this week and we will talk XP's.
