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 before we finished up 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.
It will be used for my personal enjoyment and hunting, but will also be a loaner XP for WY-SHOT.

Forgot to post one picture.
Why won't it let me edit the original post, when it had been around 5-10 minutes after I first posted it?

Weather and time has been a issue, so I plan to do drop confirmations next week.

That looks like fun. It's been wet and busy here so I haven't been able to get any trigger time in for a while.

Sunday afternoon I went out with a couple of guys from church. One needed to do load development and chronographing and the other one wanted me to chronograph a couple of guns with my Labradar. I wanted to do some drop confirmations with the Dirty Thirty/308 Winchester. We had winds from the north west, which was a quartering headwind for us. I was shooting to the north. After the guys got all of their stuff done, Glen spotted for me while I started doing some drop confirmations. The quartering headwind noticeably pushed my bullets down as I extended distances, but I still had fun.
Even at 300 yards it took me more elevation to hit my target, then it shouldíve. By 400 yards I had a sense of how much I should add at 500 yards. At 500 yards my first shot at the 10-inch diamond target was close to a center hit.

The 5-inch square target to the right was hit by a guy shooting a 7mm SAUM rifle with 195 Bergerís.
I did drop confirmations out to 800 yards, but with wind continuing to pick up, I stop there. We shot Glennís 41 magnum Smith & Wesson revolver, and had some fun. I decided I wanted to shoot one more shot with my 308 Winchester XP. I picked the upper right small dot on the big rectangular target at 500 yards.

It always feels good, when you just have a sense of what it should be and you are right, and the shot is very close to where you were aiming at a mid-range distance.

It is another shooter. Nice group!
Looks like it likes the 155 A-Max bullets pretty well.
How do you work out your Come-ups?
Are you using a Log Book that you fine tune?
Working with a Ballistic Program on a Tablet, etc?

I am old school and use a log book. I have a Drop Chart as well as a Round Count Chart for each of my M48's.

My Tactical Rifles have Wind Correction Charts, Mil-Dot Charts, and Table of Known Objects Charts. I will probably add a Wind Chart to my Handgun Log Book sooner or later.

I use the Shooter app on my phone, and I use Holland's Ultimate Data Card Software.

I use the software for my first time drop confirmation, and then if needed, I can true my software to match my drops.
