    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.

    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

    It dose track nice that was my goal when I started this project
    My dog wanted out of the truck to go get what ever I was shooting He is a German short hair and loves to hunt I would shoot a group and then let him out of the truck and he would run around looking to bring back a bird or something dead.
