Re: varmit pistol

that would be great if i could find one around here. i never see them. I've pondered the idea but was wondering which way I should go. Maybe I will look harder after college. Not saying if I could find an striker or xp I wouldn't buy it for the right price if I found one around here right now but the right price would be ridicously cheap for college is going to take a pretty penny.

Re: varmit pistol

I borrowed this Contender last year on the antelope hunt and got this pd at 611 yds. The gun owner is up to 725 yds last I heard, is that correct Ray? It's a 22-204 custom OTT barrel.

Re: varmit pistol

I was with yotefever when he shot this PD. he and Doug both nailed them little bitty targets way out there, very impressive guns Ray has there. There is a HS 2000P for sale in gunsamerica site. ( with a burris 2x7) a little pricey but has been there several months now.

Re: varmit pistol

in you're opinion, is the striker or xp100 more accurate when customized

Re: varmit pistol

This is from a full custom XP-100...222 Remington (23gr H322/50gr V-Max) Hart barrel, HS stock, custom trigger, Weaver base, Burris rings and Burris 3-12x32 LER scope.



This is from a Savage Striker 22-250 (35gr Varget/50gr V-Max)...factory stock reworked, factory trigger reworked, factory 26" varmint weight barrel cut to 15", Redfield bases, Burris rings and Burris 3-12x32 LER scope.



Both targets are official IBS 100yd centerfire to give you an idea of the 10 ring size. The only difference in the two guns...the Striker will do this kind of group on a good day (it's a .5MOA while the XP will do it nearly on demand with every group! IS the cost in building the XP worth the .2-.3 difference in group size? Not for me if I'm only shooting critters. But when someone lays bills on the bench...out comes the XP .222 Remington!!

Re: varmit pistol

Screech

My pick would be the XP. Mainly because stocks are MUCH better as is trigger mechanism and receiver rigidity.

Being able to tell one is more accurate then the other may be tricker to see but I would lean toward the XP every time.
