As some of you may be aware, I'm a big "X" gun fan.
My 1st "X" gun was a 30-06 that is the 1st gun I ever owned that would shoot multiple loads under .75" and some well under .5".
My 2nd "X" gun was a 308 that was sent to the 'smith for a trimming. I had the barrel cut back to 18.25" and a recessed crown done. That gun has shot the single best 3 shot group I've ever shot with any rifle of any sort. .101" at 100yds is something I doubt I'll ever beat.
My newest "X" gun started out as a 7-08. Once again I sent it to the 'smith and this time I had him do something different. I had him rechamber the gun to 284win. While he had it apart, he cleaned up the bolt lugs, replaced the ejector spring, faced off the recoil lug, and set the headscape to the minimum side [3-4 thousanths].
I mounted a 6-24x40 Tasco High Country scope on it for load developement and put it in a set of B-Square rings for the time being. I plan on using some Millet Rings and either a Nitrex TR2 2-10x42 scope or a Bushnell Trophy XLT with the DOA 600 reticle.
Here is a picture of it ready for the range.
I'm going to try some 140gr Nosler BT, but will also investigate the 120 BT, and the 130 Speer SPBT.
