And donít forget, Rob has put out one of the best reloading manuals ever!!! I refer to it almost daily for about the last three months.

On the powder question did he say anything about 11FS in the tcm? I recently started working up loads with it in the 32-20 and the 25-20 just to see if I get any improvement over Ramshot Enforcer (which has been working out extremely well). I need to get back to developing loads for the TCM with TCM and 11 FS.

Thatís some of the best part about this business, experimenting and see what works and what doesnít

I think 1680 might be like magic in the 20 tcm

Default 20 tcm

There was a guy looking for a XP 100 "rifle" stock and I didn't remember where I got mine so I did some digging. Found some at Emma Gun Works.

Been a few years but I had shoulder issues when it came to the "reach" when sighting my scope on the XP pistol. That's the reason I went to the rifle stock from the center grip pistol stock. Man oh man do I love that rifle and it's still chambered in .221 Fireball. Just had it re barreled with a 24" Shilen and changed the trigger to a Rifle Basix. Deadly accurate. Shoulder issues went away so I was back to building SPs.
Drug out the XP converted rifle and did some looking. The question always comes up about feeding of the "20 TCM" in different actions and what would work best?
Just happened to lay a 22 TCM round into the XP action and closed the bolt a bit. Not all the way but just enough to see how it would feed. Smooth as silk.Works like a dream.
Now, if only the XP was a left hand action. Almost tempted to pick up another XP action chambered in .221 Fireball and re chamber in to my 22 TCM. Once you go to a lefty action and shoot it right handed (right hand stays on the stock for control while your free left hand works the bolt and feeds ammo) it's hard to go back. For bench work, nothing better.

Does it not work worth a darned in the cartridge it was marketed for?
It shows for a .22 not .20. Perhaps the smaller bore is why it needs a little slower powder?

It must be a "sniper" rifle Might be more scary than an AR

Just saying the word "RIFLE" makes everybody freak out.
Like nobody has guns in your neighborhood?
