This is my unlimited big bore silhouette XP chambered in 6.5 BR. I needed bullets so I bought 2000
Nosler 140 gr HP Custom Competition blems. Sure glad they shoot. I mounted Burris 3x12 scope on it for load development. Recently installed a Dell trigger in it. Great trigger!
Flyer was thx to the father and and son that decided to shoot two benches from me! I know I pulled the shot from them touching off a round.
I was the only one at the range and there’s 10 benches to shoot from. I was 2’nd from right and they setup 2 benches away. They were shooting Grands and thank goodness no brass hit me. IThis message has been edited. Last edited by: Jay HHI6818,

What, are you unsociable or somthing?
Probably the sound amplifier ya got screwed on the end of the barrel that made ya jumpy
You will make me buy some Noslers sooner or later.
G whiz, it's a Contender or a G2, never was a G One!
We finished shooting at the same time and while I was packing the truck the Dad asked what I was shooting that it was LOUD! Showed him the little 6.5 BR case and chucked to myself and wished I had brought the 375-06 JDJ! It would have made them move to the opposite end.

Nice shooting. Good looking rig too!
ah yes Loudenboomers
Oh yeah. The muzzle blast trigger grab. I've done that a few times before. Had a really bad day once shooting a couple of benches away from a braked 458 SOCOM. As much as I tried to time my shots between his he always managed to get a few off really close together.
Nice rig you have there.
That's a nice pistola
I shot the 6.5 BR for several years in silhouette matches. -Looked very similar to yours other than the color of the stock I shot probably 1500 of the 123 grain Nosler Custom Comp bullets out of mine. They worked great for the full size targets. Never rang a ram with one. Always ran 142 SMK's while shooting 500 yard matches.
Have fun with that!!!
Jay that's a nice XP. Who's brake is that and what thread pitch on it. Thanks.
Hi Jon ,
I bought this XP used so don’t know much about the detailsother than Ralph Bond built it. Ralph was “THE” Silhouette XP builder years ago.
Thanks Jay, That's a great piece of history you have there.
Fantastic looking XP - And precise shooting no doubt. You have mentioned that this is your BB Unlimited and seeing that group at 200yd -- You should challenge yourself to try the Half size targets with it It will give you a rush when you flip back that Ram. Have fun and keep shootin.
I shot a match Last Sunday at Crittenton Ky with an fine Australian shooter who was shooting a 6.5 br. He had it dialed in to a T and sure knew how to use it,was a pleasure to watch him work. This was only the second match I have shot since the early 80's ,sure have missed the sport.
