    Erik and I will be heading to Holland's in SW Oregon this week for a four day LR field shooting class.
    I will be an assistant instructor and Erik will get to go as a student.

    We are taking two XP-100's, 338AX (built by Allen Precision) and 7mm SAUM (Built by Mac's Gunworks).
    Erik will be shooting the 7mm SAUM with the 162 A-Max's

    I re-did some load development with 250 Scenars, after I had Kirby open up the top ports more on the big Painkiller brake.
    Before I could really tell the difference between the 250's and the 300 grain bullets, now the 300's feel about the same as the 250's.

    Had a four shot group at 100 on Monday with the 250's, just under .6 and the first three shots measured .256
    Don't know the MV yet. Will chronograph once we get there.
    Using H-1000 with the 250 grain Scenars.

    Have a good time, wish I was going along. Too bad I'm leaving next week to go the other direction :) Would of been fun to watch you guys shooting against rifles and getting tighter groups. I will also make sure that if that project item comes in it will be kept there till you get back or I do for that matter.

    Sounds like it should be a lot of fun. I am jealous!
