Got it all put together last night and since I was off today started the barrel break in process. Had a box of factory hornady 120 gr amax ammo that shot poorly in my striker so figured I would shoot it up. Looks like it's going to be just fine.

Nitemann,

Do you mind if I ask what specific barrel contour you ordered?
Also who did the build?


Thanks,
Freeze

KYODE the muzzle is .800, it's a Lilja XP-15 contour for their short 15" barrel blanks that fit the stock very well. I was going to have Jeremy build it but he has kinda fallen off the planet since receiving my components for my 20VT build so went with a local smith that works out of his garage in the evenings after a full day of work at his main job. I learned about him in September and this is his first XP build. Best part is he's only 10 minutes from my house.

Derek the gun weighs quite a bit so the recoil in my opinion was very light. Not light enough for a rifle scope but i'll never be using one so i'm very pleased.

Tom it will on work on a javelina if I can find one with a dime on it's shoulder laugh

I sent him pics of the groups and he just couldn't believe it. Kept giggling and asking how far?

Rick I like that. The Lilja XP-15 profile fits very well on that build and looks good. I've got a barrel order sitting in my email for a 6.5 Creed and after seeing yours I feel I'm on the right track. Thanks Freeze for taking the time to give me the dimensions I needed.
