XP-100 light gun is complete

I worked on the XP-100 yesterday and got the barrel chambered and fitted to the action and brake installed then made the pillars out of stainless steel. Then installed the pillars and bedded the action. I finished up this morning removed the barrel action from the fresh bedding and installed the base and scope. If I can get out in the field to shoot (lots of mud) I will be shoot this afternoon and take some video.

Parts list
XP-100 action
Nawakwa accuracy stock
Lawton 6mm 8Twist barrel cut to 17.950 long 1.250 HV taper
chamber 6x47 lapua
40 MOA Base
24x Leupold rifle scope
2oz Jewell trigger
12 1/2 pounds

Re: XP-100 light gun is complete

The snow is melting and lots of mud where I usually shoot so I went to a farm where I hunt coyotes and set up by the road shooting out to 500 yards is all I can get at this farm. I set up at 100 yards to get a 0 and brake in the barrel I shot one and cleaned for 5 rounds then shot a 2 shot group out of a fowled barrel the group measured .364" at 100 yards


I cleaned the barrel and moved the target to 300 yards and put a rock next to the target for a sighter and a fowler shot. I shot the fowler shot and then shot a 3 shot group of .716".
Vidio shooting 300 yard group


I decided to move the target to 500 yards but only had 2 rounds left the 2 shots went into 1.408

click here for the 2 shot string at 500 yards
