Xp 100 is getting close.......now complete with link to pics!
Been waiting years to get my xp built. Gotta make the move! Im getting old. laugh

Mcmillan stock is coming. Talked to my gunsmith today,who has a shop maybe 10 miles from me( don fraley/advanced weapons technology in russell ky ). he builds his own brake. So getting a brake and cap to cover threads when i dont want to brake it. Gonna do a shilen 8” twist .243 With heavy varmint taper....i guess its called.

He builds all kinds of stuff. I sat there and looked at an amazing rifle he had built. Made me want to go back to school n be a dr or lawyer. laugh cry

Gotta come up with half up front and balance upon completion. I think i can, i think i can O

So excited i had to tell somebody. Red Face

Congratulations on starting your new XP. Keep us informed and photos posted.
That should be a shooter. I'm leaning toward a .243 in my next build. I have a stock, barrel, and scope.

Don fraley the gunsmith is just waiting on the barrel to come in. He said it was in stock at shilen but hadnt received it yet. He will start when it arrives.....then just a matter of minutes. Well....he didnt say minutes. Thats what i envision. laugh

Thanks fellers!
Just seen i spelled brake el wrongo. I will edit to fix. I know the difference. Wink

Bipod is stolen off my factory ruger charger. I thought it would work for pics at minimum. Heck i might try it out on the bench.

If anyone has thoughts of how you would do different, or ideas for your own, i would like to hear.

Im pretty happy!....heavy on the pretty. Big Grin

Lol! I would LIKE to have another one. Id like to have a small boltface.....probably 223 8” twist, or a 6mm/223.
Wanted one for many many years. Got it! A lot of things had to take place to get here. scratch head

So Kyle,

you shoot that new toy yet or are you still fondling and drooling over it drool

Rick
February 22, 2018, 09:36 PM
KYODE
Nope.....still droolin here. Aint that pitiful nuts ohboy

Every day at work, someone asks me if ive shot it yet. scratch head

I guess im just waiting until a really good time, when its not raining or muddy, i feel slightly energetic, or im off work with no other distractions. Im a moron like that. Pretty picky i guess.

I have cleaned the barrel and picked up 2 boxes of factory ammo in Federal 80gr and 100gr. Just today i found a lb of H4350. Local shop had been dry on that. Ill likely try that, maybe varget or H4895, or even IMR4350.

I must be patient and strong willed Blam......or just retarded.

Just wait till your barrel break in is over and you have some custom handloads to feed it. Great group either way with factory ammo.
