Okay guys what type/cartridge of specialty handgun(s) are you using for game this year?
30 GNR for hunting in the woods and the 7.21 lazz for hunting over food plot's.
6.5 WSM...if McMillan ever delivers my stock to Kirby in time!
6.5 WSSM for some whitetails, if I get it up and running in time.
prohunter in 243 win i got my first pistol deer last fall it was not a long shot the trigger was a tad over 7 pounds i was useing some cheap cabelas bulk ammo 100gr. btsp the shot was about 30 yards
since then i had trigger job done now im at 1 pound and swithced to some 85 gr tsx its a little under 1 moa @ 100 yards i would be thrilled to get one at a 100 yards . its topped with a burris 2x7 posi lock on it
XP i got my new barrel from MGM thanks for the link
7mm-08 Striker, not an X-P. Kirby did some work on it and just starting to load for it. Shot 1 1/4 MOA 1st time out, had never shot a specialty handgun before, I'm hooked. Watch out Muley's to 300 yds, great horseback gun.
Once u get it broke in, 300 yd. mulies will be DRT every shot, no doubt. If APS built it, it'll do better than that.
I've got an interesting project going. I'm reworking my Savage Striker 243 WSSM. I'm gonna rebarrel to a 6-RSAUM, and as soon as i can get a Unertl BV-20 I'm gonna put it on top, for a long-range coyote sniper. The bullet itself got this all started-- the 117 gr. DTAC polymer tip with .6 BC. Whhhoeee--can't wait.
Twist rate Steve? 7 or 7.5?
Oh, and by the way, who is doing the rebarrel work?
Chunk will be doing it, since he's right around the corner. Don't know what TR to use. I'll need to call David Tubb to find out i guess.
ok this may be a silly question to some of you !!but what SP are out there other than the Encore something with a bolt style action as much as like the encore i would be interested in putting some like the xp 100 together
A XP-100 7mm-08 with a 4-12 burris with ballistic plex cross hairs and useing the 130 gr. SPT sierra @ 2800 fps.
opps i for got to say what i was going to use the XP on . White Tails and Mulies
H-S Precision makes a bolt action SP (Total handgun), and some other action companies make actions that are suitable for an XP style SP. One minor issue with buying a action other than a old style Xp action (single-shot dog-leg bolt handle) is that you will need to find a trigger linkage, which may need to be modified to fit.
If you build it into a rear-grip configuration you can use a number of triggers. My personal preference is center-grip though.
