XP-100 in a 6.5 Ceedmoor loads
I have just bought XP-100 in 7br They don’t. Build brass for them any more and dies and forming tools are $$$$ was thinking of taking a friends Bartlein 6.5 Creedmoor rifle barrel Mat at Butch’s Guns Smith it on to the action. I have everything you can think for 6.5 creed oh yes I have owned a 7mm Metal 7r 308win so I know what the heavy recoil is like.

Does anyone have any pet loads in an XP-100 15” barrel. The H4350 I shoot in my rifles would be too fast. Was thinking Varget or H4064

I don’t load for a 6.5 creedmoor but I do load for a 25 creedmoor and a 260 Remington both in an xp100. H4350 will work just fine in the xp. Also if you prefer to leave it in 7BR You can always neck up Lapua 6mm BR brass.

I use H-4350 in my 6.5 Creed (XP-100 and Dominator), I also use it in my 6 Creed XP's as well.

I've had a number of XP's in 7br over the last 30 years and they all shot very well. There is ample load data published for it. Brass can sometimes be found via IHMSA members or on their forum. Brass can be made by necking up 6br brass, either Lapua or Remington if you can find it.

I have read that SSK/Lehigh is going to offer 7mm BR cases. I can not remember if I called SSK or Lehigh to confirm this, but was told that indeed 7mm BR cases will be offered for sale. Call them and ask when that is going to happen. Hope that is helpful.
