357 max xp it’s done!
The 357x223 is coming soon. (357 rimless max)

We will be using a Douglas 1-14 which we will contour in house. A 5 port muscle brake. Action is a Remington xp100.

There is exactly one person with cut in line privileges. And that’s the wife. If you don’t understand that your doomed to be single forever.

Can't wait to see this one! Not only does she get the bump in line, but I'm guessing there will be a personal touch on this one!!!! Love the color of the stock!

It would really be nice if you could keep us apprised of this build and the ballistics after it is done. We have to use straight wall cases for deer hunting and I really want to know how this works out.

It’s going to be close to or exactly the same as a 357 maximum.

Star line sells 223 brass that’s unformed. Trim to 1.6”. Load. Shoot

First 3 down the tube. Proceeded to zero at 50. Held on the post plex and banged at 200 on 4” steel.

Recoil is mild. A rifle scope could be used. I was using a pistol scope.

Can’t wait to actually work up a load.
