    It\'s Here! It\'s Here! It\'s Here!

    My 7mm Dakota center-grip XP-100 finally made it into my hands today. 18 inch, Lilja 1-7 Twist with a QD brake. Using a strengthened McMillan stock (gelcoat), and a Near Manufacturing 20 MOA picatinny base. Set-up to shoot the 200 WC's, but also will work well with the 175-180 class bullets too. Time for barrel break-in and then off to Nebraska for a LR handgun clinic the first week of May. Conditions and loacation permitting, I will see what it does out to a mile /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif
    Thanks Kirby /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    Kirby did take some pics before he sent it, so hopefully he will post some for me /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif
    BTW Where is this "rule" found? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Hmmm, shooting handguns at a mile, intriguing to say the least. Will definately want a range report.

    Oh yea, how about some digital images of you new firearm?

    There aren't too many rules here, but the old "Rule" about a picture being worth a thousand words is what's being referred to.
    Sounds like you have very interesting intent for that new toy - what scope?

    I am sure XP will get some better pics up soon.

    Hope you enjoy your new LR hammer. It is always fun to build these big handguns. Just for those that may be interested, top loads in my early and limited testing showed that this handgun will break 2700 fps with a 200 gr ULD RBBT and do so with 1/2 moa groups at 100 yards. Not bad /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif!!! Will only get better from there out in range.

    Scope: (Just mounted it a few minutes ago /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif)
    Leupold 8.5x25 (30mm) LR/T with Tactical Milling Reticle.
    We have made connections just past a mile already with a rear grip 6.5-284 XP-100 on PD's.

    That is a sweet looking pistol. I have a question! When you use a center grip pistol like that can u use a rifle scope or do u still have to use a pistol scope? I don't no much about hunting pistols. Mo

    I live in Kansas, North West of Wichita.
    You can use a rifle scope with either center or rear grips, but depending on cartridge, weight of pistol, braked, way you hold the handgun will be dependent on whether or not you can have a full field of view with a rifle scope. I'm 100% sure I will not try to use a full FOV with this one, although I plan to use the Leupold rifle scope (not pictured yet /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif) as my primary scope. I have a Burris 3-12 LER handgun with ballistic plex reticle and target turrets that I could put on if I so desired.
    The TC scope pictured is Kirby's.
    Personally, I prefer the center-grip's for hunting purposes.
