Sure is a nice looking riflegun you have there.
But your pix seem to be disoriented.
Your pix make it look like the bolt is in backwards!
Actually the bolt is on the "right side"... (There are a few perfect people in the world, the rest of them are right handed...
In that case if that backward pistol of yours ever needs a good home just send it here .It would fit right in to my imperfect world. I'll even pay the postage.
Well, that XP-100 actually has the bolt on the "correct side" for a lefty. If I were right handed, I'd want it on the other side.... (Much like a single action revolver is correctly set up for a lefty)
Nice pair, and perfect for you
I am a lefty as well, well except in the shooting world. My right eye is dominant and I have always shot righty since a wee lad. All mixed up
It's not a break, it's a brake, unless it's a break, then it's broke ;-)
I feel ya man. I'm only partially left handed. I play sports right handed. Write left handed, shoot archery left handed (started out right handed, but switched to left side due to dominate left eye). Use to shoot pistols right hand but switched to left handed because I can control the trigger better left handed and shoot better groups (still occasionally shoot handguns right handed but prefer left side).
So I understand your situation.
One benefit of being a lefty:
Among all this people there were seven hundred chosen men lefthanded; every one could sling stones at an hair breadth, and not miss.
Good looking guns, Rog.
Good luck and good hunting.

Great looking stick(s) Rog!
What are you gonna push out of the 300RUM?
Schunter I plan to shoot 210 Bergers primarily. Throat is set for that bullet. I also plan to shoot any of the bullets in the 190-215, 220 gr range but primarily 210's.
My twist is only a 1:10" otherwise if I had a 1:9" I'd run some 230's.
Barrel is a Lt. Palma Krieger 5R.
That is an excellent looking rig and a great addition to your XP! Can we have some more details and a range report?
I haven't had time to do any real range work. So far only 19 rds down the tube for break-in. Still have to do load work up. Soon.
The rifle is a Remington 700 stainless left hand that started life as a LSS LH model in 300 RUM with a standard magnum contour barrel. I bought the rifle used from my BIL, and he purchased it used from a pawn shop. No idea of the round count on the factory tube.
After killing two deer with the factory rifle, I decided I wanted to change it up.
Dropped it off at Beanlandcustomrifles.com last fall, in September.
Jon Beanland did the following:
Pinned 0.250" recoil lug
Side bolt release
Mini M16 extractor
Krieger Lt Palma contour 27" 1:10" twist 5R bbl
300 RUM chamber with 0.098" free bore; 0.343" neck
Karl Kampfeld 3 port brake
Bell & Carlson Medalist stock with aluminum bedding block bedded to action
Factory bottom metal titanium cerakote
Wyatt's 3.825" extended box
Weaver 0 MOA picatinny rail
Weaver Tactical 6 screw rings
Titanium Cerakote by Jon Beanland
Burris 4x-16x-44mm AO BP Signature Select scope (soon, I hope to replace with a better optic - but this one is acceptable for now).
Gun weight with out optic: 8.75 lbs
Gun weight with optic: 10.25 lbs
Before pic of the rifle:
XP-100 info? (I've posted this before in the bolt section...)
7 RSAUM chambering
Beanland trued action
Bolt face opened up from 0.378" cartridge size to 0.532" cartridge size
Mini M16 extractor
Beanland side bolt release
Factory recoil lug surface ground true
Bartlein #4 contour 1:9" twist 5R 17.5" bbl
Ross Schuler 3 port muzzle brake (very effective, I might add)
Ken Farrell XP-100 0 MOA scope rail (with extra slots milled by me)
Weaver Quad Lock rings
Burris 3x-12x AO target turret scope
Aaron's stock bedded
Trigger set to 24 ounces by me
Set it up for longer ranges and killed it's first deer at 10 yards...
First kill with the XP-100 7 SAUM was a buck I wanted gone. A young buck, but horns shoulda been better.

Thanks for the info. I remember when you posted that pick of the 8 pt with the rifle in stock trim. The 300 RUM is a big ol' cartridge but they have a reputation for accuracy. Let us know how it shoots!
Thanks Aaron. I've only shot Retumbo. Every once in a while I think about trying RL33.
100 FPS is a good improvement in velocity. I may have to put RL33 on my list of powders to try.
Should see a similar improvement in the RUM case, I would think.
Nice looking deer. Nice looking rifle. Congratulations on both.

Congrats on the deer!
