28 Nosler XP build Updated


Started on the new 28 Nosler XP-100 this weekend.
Got all barrel work done. 18" McGowan 1-8 twist throated for the 195 gr Berger EOL bullets. Had PTG build me a .321" neck, with .288 FB Match reamer. I fit on a 4 port Magnum Muscle Brake.
She's going in a McMillan center grip stock. Will post more as the project progresses Big Grin

I wonder if this is the first 28 Nosler SP???

Looking good! Keep us posted and I believe you've broke new ground in the XP'S with the .28 in an SP.

Nice start Mike. If that one is for yourself I have this gut hunch its not the only one being built on an XP action for use in Wyoming next year.

That looks nice Mike! I'm sure it will be a hammer. For some reason I thought this was going to be a centergrip though... Might think about putting an extra screw hole for the base too.

Aaron,
This is the center grip build. Need to open up the face on the extra bolt that I have for the switch barrel BR gun. That will be a straight 1.200" x 20" barrel.

Bret,
This a McGowan #8 taper. Finishes at 1.00" at the muzzle. The barrel will be going to Cerakote this week. You will have to wait to see the finished gun Big Grin
I think the chucks are going to have a rough spring this coming year! We need to plan an SP get together somehow? I know Aaron is going to make it down, and it would be fun to get Steve (Shaggy357) back out again happy There's some new goals to be met thumbup

She's all together now and ready for a trip to the range. I'll be starting load development with RE33 and Retumbo.

Hope everybody has a Merry Christmas!

Mike,
That looks sweet!! Cant wait to see the range reports and even more can't wait for the opportunity to shoot it!! Big Grin
May have to find a new rockchuck spot for that baby that will allow longer than the 1000 yards of the one spot.
You should take a video clip on your phone when you shoot it and send it to me. I want to see that baby in action.
All these pictures of new builds just builds the anticipation for my next one. Patience Grasshopper Patience. laugh
