Well It didn't take me long to think it over...and Ernie may have nudged me a tad. 7mm-08 big brother to my 250 savage. Twin center grip heavy bbled beauties. This one has much nicer wood!

I'm going to try a rifle scope on this one and it needs a front stud for a bipod...maybe. I'll keep you posted! I also need to find a new photo host since hunt 101 died...suggestions?

Imgur is what I am using.
Happy for you!
Glad you picked it up, as it saved me from buying it Big Grin

Very Nice! Those Custom Shop XP's are getting few and far between. Right after I got started into this spiraling pattern of Specialty Pistols I found a Custom Shop Xp in 7-08, heavy barrel with break. After one look at it I had the money on the way and now, after 19 years of shooting it I still take it out to the range and hunting most every year. The first time I hunted with it in Casper, Wyoming on a special antelope hunt at the Hat Six ranch with Ernie and many of the SP guys from this site, I took a nice antelope with it. I have taken several whitetail with it also in Oklahoma and a pig in Texas. It is a keeper and shoots like a dream. Will never change the wood stock out. It is eye candy.
Glad you found two of them. Can't get any better than that and you have two of the great calibers covered for most anything you would need for hunting or targets.
Enjoy.

Mike

Great Xp's and the 250 savage CS version has been my bucket list XP for over 25 years. Have 3 CS XP's, 6BR, 7BR and 223, will never part with them. They don't show up very often anymore.

Those are a couple beauties. I've never even seen a custom shop xp around here.

Really nice! Is there anything else besides the stock that is different from other XP’s in your CS versions?

The CS versions have 15.5" barrels on the heavy barrels not sure on the sporter versions. Each gun is built one at time to tighter tolerances as well. My 7mmBR CS XP won't chamber 7mmBR ammo that fits my standard production 7BR unless fully sized and a fired case from the standard XP won't fit in the CS. All 3 are more accurate than my standard production XP's as well, usually groups in the half inch range are typical.

Interesting. Those are definitely my favorite stocks, appearance wise.
