Mac's Gunworks just got through dressing up my LR specialty pistol.
Scope is a Leupold Mark 4 6.5-20 FFP with Holland's ART reticle.
Love this scope and reticle, and now the outside is great too.
NF Rings, Seekins picatinny base, Carlocks ACI holder with level, and one of Hollands new scope levels too.

I am sort of an odd-duck, when it comes to hunting and LR shooting.

Don't forget the sun glasses so the muzzle blast don't blind you! Nice set-up though!

Not a problem, but I wear eye-wear when I shoot.
Plus, I don't hunt in the darkBandito

162 A-Max @ 2759 fps.
Even with this rifle scope @ 20x, getting hit is not an issue when using this brake.

The base color is Flat Dark Earth
The other two colors are Sage, and the brown is federal brown.
It looks a little lighter in the pics than it is, but I hunt in the snow, and the grassland/sage land.  It will work great in those ares.
I will try to get some different pics later to give a better representative of the colors.

Holland's new Radial Quick Discharge.
It is my favorite brake.

That is a sweet looking rig you have there Ernie.
How far are you planning to take game with this set up?

My XP-100 is still a .221.

A number of factors are involved when considering LR.
When practicing with this rig shooting prone, I usually start at 500 yards, and go out to 1200 yards on steel (100 yard increments).
Animals behavior, atmospheric conditions, constant or switchy winds, how steady of a field rest I have, etc., are all added in.
Last year I took a buck antelope just over 1K with a 7m WSM center-grip XP-100, using 162 A-Max.
Not sure what will happen this year.

Now your are making me want another Encore Bullberry barrel. I have one in 44 mag and one in 45-70 but I'm thinking .308 or 7mm08.  That is a very specalized firearm should be lots of fun.

Love it. That is a nice grown up version of the Possom Popper. See Left. I seem to think the hand rifles tend to be more accurate than most full stocked versions. Not having the stock to your shoulder gives more consistency to the recoil motion. Just observation. Could be that the hand rifles tend to be more custom actions and construction.
