    Well, I was finally able to finish my XP-100R project 2 days before hunting season and after 3 years of collecting parts, so I threw a load together with 140 Bergers and it shot! I managed just under 1/2" group at 100 yd. and with a little more practice I managed to stay sub 1/2MOA at 600yd. I must say these pistols are pretty fun to shoot and even easier to carry. I was able to harvest three critters with this pistol this year and got two on video. Took a few picture by a really pretty frozen stream while hunting.


    Here are the build specs:
    XP-100R receiver blueprinted
    PTG bolt tigged on handle and diamond fluting by SSG
    McGowan barrel, 16" 1:8 twist
    SSG mini X-treme brake
    Seekins 20MOA base bedded to receiver with #8 screws
    Holland recoil lug
    Factory McMillan stock modified, painted and pillar bedded by SSG
    Single shot follower
    Bushnell Elite 6500 tactical 2.5-16 mil dot
    Tps rings
    All gunsmithing done by SSG

    Enjoy the video

    Great looking set up you got there Nate. That 6.5 is a terrific performer. I also have a 6.5WSM XP-100 but mine is in a mid-grip.

    Very Cool.
