    First round of drop confirmations at a grand.
    Sometimes when you say you are going to take a some drop then you forget to....
    It was a great confirming shot each time.
    Didn't quite double it on the first and second shot, but once I brought it down...that was sweet.

    I also likes the look of the new Nosler, just can't seem to come up with the caliber I want, or the money. Not necessarily in that order
    Customize your 7BR, and have one set-up that will do everything you want.

    Factory 7mm B-R handguns make awesome long-range handguns when rechambered to the 284 Winchester, and adds a good 500 yard effective range to it!

    The bolt actions used to be more popular. There was the Remington XP100, but I've seen more Savage Striker's. They seem to have fallen out of favor, as they are far too big to be practical. They are nothing but stock-less rifles, which is exactly what they are meant to be. They are legal in shotgun hunting areas that allow handguns. Everyone knows about the Thompson Center's. I never could warm up to any of these style pistols. The Encore is close, but I never loved them.

    The only one I did really like was made by Competitor Corp. They made something called the Competitor pistol, very similar to the Magnum Research lone eagle. Unlike the lone eagle, the competitor didn't have the cocking lever. It also balanced more like a handgun, while the LE felt rear heavy. They also had much classier stocks. I do not know if the LE was a switch barrel gun, but I do know the Competitor could be.

    I wish they were still in business. I haven't seen one come up for sale any time I've been interested, or not in a caliber I care for.

    They are out of business. They had a part or two that tended to break if I remember right.
    I have a couple of Dominators that have been customized-Old school fun!

    Since we're drifting around the bolt actions, I used to have an MOA Maximum in 308 Winchester. It was taken in a smash-and-grab burglary. It was a very accurate pistol, and more "handy" than the bolt actions. The falling block action is very strong.

    The MOA's were typically very accurate!
    I still have several.

    I have owned a couple of the Desert Eagle Lone Eagle single shots in 30-30, and with 125 gr. Ballistic Tips, they were both VERY accurate!

    Four or five years back, I sold my last XP100 (a 7BR, like yours) with a McGowan barrel, McMillan stock, and Burris rings/mounts for $825. Off sandbags piece would shoot cloverleafs at 100M.

    I wish I had the .221 FireBall and 7mmBR XP100s that I had in the 1980s. The 7BR would be great for hunting deer from a blind. They are just too costly nowadays.

    I had a B/A 30/30 I shot unlimited silhouette with for a while. It would put five RCBS 30-180s into 4 1/2" at 200M, the rams were not too safe.
    Oh, to be able to see sights that good again!
    I don't think I ever soiled it with a filthy j-word.
