This is BCG 308 Winchester XP-100, using a Remington Take-Off 308 Winchester barrel chopped to 15.8" Holland's Radial Baffle Brake, Leupold Mark IV 4.5-15, McMillan stock, and a factory trigger.



Video Below: Factory TAP with 168 A-Max.
Reloads: 1x fired Hornady Match 308 Win brass, CCI primer, H-4895, 155 A-Max at 2720 fps.
Groups were at 100 yards.


The last 3-shot group was by Dan Ekstrom, with his MagnetoSpeed attached and the group size was close to mine. This XP-100 shoots great!
Next up is doing some drop confirmations at distance.
Impact velocities will allow me to kill out to mid-range distances.  Impact velocity at 550 yards should just a tad over 1800 fps.
It will be used for my personal enjoyment and hunting, but will also be a loaner XP-100 for WY-SHOT.
In The Video, I am shooting some older TAP 168 ammunition, so we could set up the resize die properly.

When you are dead, you don't know you are dead.It is difficult only for others.

It is the same when you are stupid.
