yes shoot with and with out. it good for about 1/8 to 1/4 moa off on this rifle. but i had it on a 223 and it opened it up by that much. so if you have one then i would say try it and see but not worth buying

Post by: SJCBLACKIE on October 03, 2012, 12:59:36 PM
The rings are high for sure. I had them on my DPMS. I am saving up for a decent scope with 30mm tube so I figured I would be changing out the rings anyway. I may just buy some so so rings to get that bell down on that barrel.

Post by: Trent on October 09, 2012, 10:46:55 PM
This is my only Sightron and I am pretty happy with it. I picked it up used for $700 and I've been pleased with it so far. With our Georgia humidity and mirage I don't get above 35 power very often though. It is bright and clear at 1,000.

Nice pieces. My wife and I have made the switch to a CM family. Problem is she is LH, but Savage took care of it. Mine is a 16 and hers a 11 both have Leupolds. We just hunt but do they shoot both under moa with factory 140 A-Max. Hers a little better than mine till I started loading. Here is a pic of some of my loads. 300 yards 140 VLD hybrid, I consider that lucky for me.

hunter 67,
one of my best friends lives in seattle. he is a commercial salmon fisherman out of pugent sound (bay) -probobly didnt spell it right.
he is a great hunter,doesnt shoot the cm yet. ive been to the southeast corner several times ...anotone area, close to lewiston idaho. is that pics of your vld load at 300yds?
if so what recipie are you using, powder,primer, seating depth,etc...? great group for sure!! i just got my 1st cm this week and most guys seem to shoot 40-42 gr of h-4350 behind the 139-142 6.5's i will shoot the berger 140vlds
Title: Re: pics of your rigs
Post by: hunter67wa on October 12, 2012, 07:03:04 PM
swampthing; Anatone is good hunting. some decent bucks and 400" bulls come out of that area every year. So here is my load development story. I started with loads of H-4350 at 42.0; 43.0; 43.5; 44.0 at magazine length. They where plum into the lands. I shot all loads at 300y. The 43.0 grain load stood out 2". I was going to go .1 in both directions of 43.0 but I changed bullet depth to just off the lands to gross adjustment of 1/4 turn out per load on seating die. Bang low and behold this is the group with a full turn off the lands. Had one other group at 3/4 at 300y. I haven't measured it yet as my friend has my calipers and he's in Kansas hunting. He'll be home this weekend. Federal 210 and Hornady cases. I will let you know on length. Shot again today 2 almost touching and F-upped next shot 1.5". I'm not the best shot.
Title: Re: pics of your rigs
Post by: limige on October 12, 2012, 09:56:11 PM
That is one sick group for 300 yrds. I was happy to see that at 100 while working my seating test.  Next is powder workup.. mine likes the vld's. 08 off the rifling.  Going to start loading tomorrow ill snap a pic of the new gun once I get home.

My buddy s trying to talk me into an Idaho trip.  Id love to go hunt elk or moose sometime.

Post by: swampthang on November 12, 2012, 12:04:08 PM
how does the handi rifle shoot? over the yrs i bought my boys one 3 total 1 .243, 1 308 and a bull barrell 308 and even with all kinda diffrent handloads i never got one of them to shoot moa. groups were AT BEST 2in if that good.
i like the small frame short handi rifles and i hope yours shoots great!! they just left a bad taste in my mouth.
Title: Re: pics of your rigs
Post by: ibgp3 on November 12, 2012, 02:01:07 PM
First trip to the range should be Wednesday.

As a nearly 6.5TCU wildcat this rig showed promise, but brass was such a pain to make that I never really developed it. The 20 rounds on the carrier are more than I ever made for the wildcat. There are tricks to making a Handi accurate, I don't know them, but I know people who do. Starting with the big Shilen barrel may help. I have a .357Max Handi with the same barrel and it stacks 38's and 357 mag and max in consistently small groups, it just never excited me.

I also have a factory barrel that has been reamed out and chambered for 6.5CMR, and one of my ambitions for this project is the comparison of the two barrels.

This barrel will chamber and eject rimmed and rimless dummy rounds. If that proves out, brass can be made from 303Brit, 30-40 Krag, or most derivatives of 250Sav, 308Win, or 30-06. (As well as shooting factory CM.)

TomN
I've always thought the T/C Precision Hunter looked a really nice rifle, but I didn't think it was available in 6.5CM (at least according to their website). 
Did you buy it from the factory or add a 6.5CM barrel yourself?
Title: Re: pics of your rigs
Post by: TomN on November 15, 2012, 12:56:09 PM
Looked for over a year.  Found out in January that they quit making them in 6.5cm.  Also found out that 3 were in stock at the factory.  Managed to get one.  Factory test target stated .51 inch.  I have been able to get groups down to .35 using factory 140 amax.

NJ.264, Is that a bull barrel and 20moa rail? If so what size rings did you need for your Mark 4? I'm waiting on my barrel/action and my Mark 4 is in but I haven't got rings yet. Was wondering what size.

Nice setup! What is the bored out 55gal hanging drum for? I've never seen that lol
Title: Re: pics of your rigs
Post by: NJ.264 on May 29, 2013, 09:32:55 AM
Thank you Rooks. The barrel is the #7 contour from Shilen with a Badger 20 MOA rail. The barrel has a slight taper to it. The rings are the Leupold 30mm Low rings. I was a bit nervous about them when they first came in, but they work with the rail. I just cant use a lens cap on it  :)

The barrels I'm shooting through have old tires stacked up in side. It is like a huge silencer. I live in Oregon wine country and it keeps the neighbors at bay.  :)

The action is a B.A.T. chromoly model B, 1.35" round with the diamond pattern bolt. I had them buff the action to the max before blueing so it would look wet when blued. The stock is a Richard Franklin #10 pattern in 3 layer laminate. The outer 2 layers are maple. The inner layer that you can't really see is walnut.

I have it on for about 150 rounds and it stays on. It does work. I am able to see the target right after the shot but $250 it is kind of stiff price. After I ordered it I found a cheaper muzzle brake for $85 which i ordered for my .223

This is the rifle I just had built and received.  It's a a stiller predator action.  Jewell Trigger.  McMillan gamescout stock.  Brux #4 fluted 1 in 8 twist barrel.  With a ptg bottom metal.  The rings are 303 stainless that i machined myself and are also pinned.  I have only had time to fire a few shots over the hood of my truck and it looks promising.  Need to shoot it off and good bench and get some load work done for it.  I will try and get some better pictures up when i can.

This is the rifle I just had built and received.  It's a a stiller predator action.  Jewell Trigger.  McMillan gamescout stock.  Brux #4 fluted 1 in 8 twist barrel.  With a ptg bottom metal.  The rings are 303 stainless that i machined myself and are also pinned.  I have only had time to fire a few shots over the hood of my truck and it looks promising.  Need to shoot it off and good bench and get some load work done for it.  I will try and get some better pictures up when i can.

Nice to see shooters reaching to the top shelf for parts to build Creedmoors. Nice rifle. Who was the smith?

Never put an updated pic of my Creedmoor up after getting the stock back from Michael at Controlled Chaos Arms www.controlledchaosarms.com (http://www.controlledchaosarms.com) He did a great job on the stock. Much better than my home hack job I posted earlier. He also did my AR forend and is doing my STI now. If you need any finishing work or gunsmithing he can help out.

The rifle is GA Precision with Templar action, 26.5" Bartlein barrel, Manners T3 stock, Badger DBM, Seekins Precision rings holding the S&B 5-25x56.

How much does your Creedmoor weigh (without a silencer)? 
I get the impression that GAP don't need lots of weight to create very accurate rifles.

Post by: Rob01 on September 13, 2013, 02:31:58 PM
It's about 17 pounds set up like it is in the picture. The barrel is an MTU profile so it's pretty beefy. They built what I wanted.

Lil late entry  ;)

New to the forum and the 6.5 Creedmoor. I don't know if I am more impressed with the cartrage or the rifle but 1/4" accuracy with factory 140 amax out of the box is ridiculous. I can't wait to start reloading for the 6.5 CM.

This is my Savage 12 LRP  :)

Here is my rig: a Savage Lightweight Hunter clothed in a very nicely figured stock. The stock that came with the rifle was pretty lame so I had Savage replace it. The one they chose as the replacement, after I refinished it with a linseed oil-based finish, is a real gem. And the rifle shoots great too! I look forward to deer season later this year.

Hi, new here; just found this site. I though some of you might be interested in my 'rig':

This rifle started out as a Remington CDL that came in .243 Win - 700 rnds later, and some gunsmithing (the usual suspects, bedding, re-crown, trigger work, lapping, etc.), I gave up, I figured I just lost the factory barrel lottery. So I took my rifle to Nightowl Gunsmithing in SLC, Utah, and had Ray install a stainless Shilen barrel, 25" long, I'm not quite sure whta the contour is but it's definitely beefier than the original factory barrel! The rifle is topped with a VXIII 2.5-8x36mm.

(http://i1223.photobucket.com/albums/dd503/goldentrout_one/Rifle1.jpg)[/URL]

(http://i1223.photobucket.com/albums/dd503/goldentrout_one/Rifle2.jpg)[/URL]

(http://i1223.photobucket.com/albums/dd503/goldentrout_one/Rifle3.jpg)[/URL]

I took this rifle to Colorado in 2011 and killed my first deer (a small 2-point) - yeah yeah, I know; but my buddies kept telling me, "you just have to get your hands bloody!" 400 yrd shot, 130gr accubond, through and through, never recovered the bullet, dropped the deer where it stood (I think I demolished one shoulder, hence the drop).

Here's some accuracy results - I give you some good results, along with some just ok results - a representative sampling so to speak...The grid lines are 1" square...

(http://i1223.photobucket.com/albums/dd503/goldentrout_one/Group4.jpg)[/URL]

(http://i1223.photobucket.com/albums/dd503/goldentrout_one/Group1.jpg)[/URL]

Oddly enough, the most accurate bullet I've tried out of this rifle is the Sierra 85gr Varminter - yes, it has to jump a mile to reach the rifling, but for whatever reason, getting all five into one ragged hole is fairly easy with this combo. I've tried 130s (accubonds and the new Sierra Gameking), 130s don't do so well in this rifle for some reason, too many fliers. It seems to really like 140s and 120s though... the nosler 120 BT seems to really be the best, most consistent big-game bullet I've put through this rifle - it's my go-to hunting bullet for the time being... I'll post some 'kill' pics in the appropriate forum.

Anyway, this is far and away the best rifle I've ever owned - love the cartridge, and love this rifle! Albeit, it's probably an 8.5lb rifle now, a bit of a chore to carry, but really no heavier than an M-16 (I think), and you can't argue with the accuracy. Next stop - turn my 70s-era BDL into a 6.5-06!

7mm, welcome  to the forum. you have a nice set-up there and very good shooter. those groups are pretty indicative of the 6.5cm, whatever powder or bullet it always seems to group decently. what twist is the barrel and what loads were you using with the 85grnrs? my barrel is 8 twist and likes the 140's pretty much, haven't tried the lighter bullets yet but getting ready to.
good shooting!

Maverick2, here are a few "before" images of the stock when it arrived from Savage. One could certainly see the potential beauty, but it was hidden beneath a very dark stain-poly coating that hid most of the figuring unless one was in direct sunlight. Why the heck did Savage do that?

Leupold medium.  Not much clearance between objective and barrel .  I had to trim the nightforce objective cover to fit. You may want to find something a hair higher. Hope yours shoots as well as mine - .35 in at 100 yards with factory 140's.  If you can justify the scope it is phenominal. 

Good luck.

I filled a gap in my arsenal early last month with a TC Icon Precision Hunter in a 6.5 Creedmoor. Had seen a few Icon "Classics" but never a Precision Hunter, and ended up buying this sight unseen. Topped it with a Zeiss 6.5-20x50 for now ("borrowed" from one of my varmint rifles until the squirrels and rockchucks wake up and/or I buy the new scope for this one, whichever comes first...) I'm pretty impressed with this so far. I'm shooting 1/2 MOA groups with factory ammo so far, and am pretty sure it's capable of 0.35 or better if I'd quit drinking coffee on my shooting mornings, play with loads a bit, and wait until the wind isn't blowing. This rifle balances very well for a heavy barreled model -- would buy it again in a heartbeat. Looking forward to logging a lot of miles with it.

Yeah, I think I'll follow your suggestions and see where this ends up.  All I've done is shoot it a couple times, so will play a little to see what I can do.  I was sorry to see this line disappear off the market.  I'd like to add a couple more TC Icons in different calibers, and discontinued production makes that a bit of a challenge.  Thanks to all for all the feedback!

It's not a 6.5 Creedmoor but I am still proud of it.  My first build and it shoots as good as it looks, even on barrel break in.  Building up some test loads to wring her out this weekend but I am very happy with how it came out.  It took me a year and that is a good thing as the money was spent over the whole year as opposed to one lump sum.

Thanks, the break is a custom break made by a gunsmith friend of mine.  Because of the 28 inch barrel we wanted a shorter break and because of the fire dangers here in AZ we wanted vents on the top and sides, but not the bottom.  I works very well, with the weight of the rifle and the decelerator recoil pad the rifle is actually quiet pleasant to shoot.

Yessir  2.909 average OAL ..  Feeds great from the AICs magazines with the front plate removed and the feedramp notched.  Same gun shoots same load but with the bullet jumping .110" in the solid low .3s with a silly low ES but the owner wanted to see just how tight it could shoot so We slightly kissed the VLD and wammo it went in the sub.1 area -- He was happy and I told him " If You like it I Love it!!"

This is a Pre-Gunsmith visit.

When it comes back it will be wearing a heavier contour barrel and the barreled action will be cerakoted Patriot brown.

Pics to follow when I am back from a business trip, around June ish.

Looks like pics will be coming sooner. Talked to the smith today. He should be spinning up the barrel in the next week or two the. It's off to paint.

Getting pretty excited.

Gminor   I bet Your are getting that warm & fuzzy feeling!!!   Tell Us a little about the Mcrees chassis pros / cons , ergonomics etc. ????  I have one in here that belongs to a customer but it is a lefty so I can't give it a fair shakedown!!

It's a good chunk of hardware.

As you probly know, it is heavy, but it works well.

The LOP adjustability is in good increments, the cheek riser is super adjustable too. The only thing that I wish it did was cant the recoil pad in order to get to that next level of adjustability. The folding hinge locks up nice and ridged

However, this hasn't been a limiting factor for me.

Bottom line: it is a good chassis that really is plug and play, you don't have to worry about bedding, fitting DBM or any of that stuff.

It just works and it works well.

Now, to the brass tacks, would I buy it again? No. I got this one for about 1/2 price as a personal favor by someone. But if I'm spending $$$ again it's going to be on an Eliseo chassis 100% no doubt.

Well, I finally received all the parts I needed to get this beautiful, Savage Model 12 LRP in 6.5 Creedmoor up and running. I have not had a chance to do any moding or upgrades yet but I have big plans ahead. I will be heading out to the range to fire this beauty for the first time on Thursday of next week. I need to get her sighted in and start the barrel break-in process. I am hopping to be at the range by 9:00AM and have her broke-in enough too shoot bug holes at 100 and sub MOA at 200 by the afternoon, I will have to see how it goes. The trigger may take me some getting used to, definitely not complaining as this is the best factory trigger that I have ever seen or felt.

I am floored by the craftsmanship and innovation that Savage is offering at an incredibly affordable price. I am so glad that I decided on purchasing one of their fine pieces of equipment.

Consider the following to be the before pictures for what is to come...

This the first time I have heard something this positive about a savage... Maybe that's a good thing.

Or maybe you have a fluke rifle.

From what I have seen at the range (savage failure after failure) I wouldn't touch a savage with a 10' stick.

Flame suit on...

Well here she is.

She sits at 18.4 pounds as you are looking at her.

The AR behind her is my little Grendel with a heavy pipe.

That Benchmark M24 profiled barrel is heavy!!!

we have had the 300 yd golfball matches and they separate the men from the boys. backstop is at the 1000yd mark so no need looking for splash. hope you dial it right. but its a known distance of 300 yds so theres no problems with hitting all 10 with the creedmoor and the 12x42 nightforce  and 2dd recticle, its just fun. 
ps golf balls EXPLODE when hit with a hp berger.

Well I went from shooting shotgun so the next logical point n spray firearm is an AR! I don't know what it is but I can shoot a gasser better than a bolt gun all day.

Difference in JP and Mia is the nut on the trigger. One is loose and one is tight!

Here is one of my gassers.

Its a "little" 24" 6.5 Grendel (Bartlein pipe). Some people like to think the Grendel is a good long range round, BUT the jury is still out for me.. It is a hammer compared to a 5.56 though for sure...

Thanks for the compliments guys, I did have video of me shooting golf balls but not sure where they are. I can defiantly get some in the future when powder get more available.  I think the only video I have on you tube is of me shooting a 4" plate about 6 or 7 time in a relativity fast. not sling the bolt fast but one after another with the guys in the back ground talking trash.
Here is the link for the one videos, target it little and is located under the 36" plate, you will see it swing around. also you can see the bullet trace. Hope you all enjoy. will try to get the golf video in the future when I can get powder.

 I did some more work on the stock again today.  I didn't like how the opening in the foreend was
So I touched up the paint and put some clear coat over the camo paint.  I've still got a bunch of white paint on the steel. Last winters fur hunting.  . I got my 144 gr Lapua's in today so I'm goin to the range tomorrow . I just wish I had a long range to shoot at.  I need to go find a place along the river somewhere.

What is the G-1 and g-7 BC for the 144 grain Lapua bullet is this a 6.5 and how long is it? I ask since I thought that the 142 SMK was the heaviest pointed type bullet I have seen the 160 round nose but the long range ballistics suck.

130 gr Barnes TSX
[mergedate]1401391080[/mergedate]
Obviously these are hunting bullets but it does show that the 144 fmjbt's are a little short.  But for.my purposes the shortness is a plus as I want straight line penetration thru animals with it.

Lapua advertises the BC as over. .6 .

I think that may be a bit ( eager) 
Like the 130 Sirocco  .57+ advertised.  Brian Lintz  listed it at  .48+ if I remember right.
[mergedate]1401391851[/mergedate]
Well my range time was cut quite short by a hunter education class showing up. Any more than 1 or 2 friends at the range is too much for me!!  Don't know how some of u guys deal with it.  But so far the 41 gr :o H4350. CCI 200, 144 gr Lapua fmjbt is looking very promising. I didn't get time to chrony it.  But will tomorrow,  God willing. 
And yes,  I did manage to scratch the paint on my stock

I had Bruce Thom at B.A.T. cut down and anodize the rings / mounts so the scope would be closer down to the stock and more closely match the finish of the action. The mounts were originally made for a 56 mm scope objective lens. I'm using a 40 mm objective lens Leupold 6.5-20x40 long range and the scope sat up to high. The gunsmith that built this rifle is Tommy Shurley of Shurley Brothers. This rifle seems to shoot everything I load.  I'm a very lucky, and happy, guy.

Title: Re: pics of your rigs
Post by: Cold Trigger Finger on June 14, 2014, 08:55:45 PM
 Just rattle can light green camo and then clear gloss.  But I went kinda easy on the clear as I didn't want it to be shiny. 
The green color is not very tough so it rubs off fast.  The clear gloss is quite a bit tougher so what is under it lasts a lot better. 
Ime unless its black night out,  the color black is VERY easy to see.  The stock came with a good tough black pebble finish paint on it.  Not what I wanted.

Title: Re: pics of your rigs
Post by: swampthang on July 04, 2014, 04:19:21 AM
its a barrell block. the entire gun is free floated , this is the only place the gun is attatched. the action is or should be completely free from touching anywhere. no torque on trigger screws . this looks to be a very serious shooter/ most all serious bench shooters are using a barrell block because you can control the stress .  by using one, its the only place the gun "touches". i have thought several times about going back to one . had one on a 6ppc and 308. if my creedmoor didnt shoot as well as it does i would have one milled. i did however start to see very light pitting in my barrell but i have 1600 rounds down her,  when accuracy starts to suffer i will set the barrel back and order another one to have on hand. this time i will have a 31 in  finished bartlein.great looking rig for sure, looks like you have pot alot of heart and hard work in her.

Nice Rifle.  The manners EH series seem to be made with helium and cotton candy, they are so light.  I have an EH4 in black.  Plan to drop my Pierce Ti into it for deer season.  Need to do a bit more sanding close to the action, have 2 tiny spots touching.

I roughed it at 9lbs without the bipod or stock pack but including scope and rings. It was a little hoppy if I wasn't dug in straight behind the rifle hence the muzzle brake. Love the grip on that stock. Its just right.

Aussie.  Is that a muzzle brake on your barrel??
Very nice rifle.  Your cheek rest looks similar to mine.

CTF
No it's a barrel tuner
It was on the rifle when I bought it.
The previous owner had shot 1.5" groups at 800 yards with this gun in FClass with 123 grain Scenars interestingly enough.
He said he fitted it to try & get it tighter still but feels it made neglible difference.
I left it on as it shoots pretty damn good I have to say.

Wow!!!  I think that I would leave it on also. . That is pretty amazing.  More than just pretty amazing.  Is that a factory Ruger  barrel ? Your check rest looks nicer than mine!  Every time I see one of the VT 6.5 Creedmoors I tell myself that I need one. 
Title: Re: pics of your rigs
Post by: Aussie65 on July 11, 2014, 04:30:02 AM
Yes it is a factory Ruger barrel
He said he had it bore polished by his smith when he had the rail & trigger fitted.
It is so easy to clean even after a few hundred rounds. But won't shoot until its had about 6 foulers put through it usually.
He sold the gun & moved on to a custom build but told me he was trying a 6.5 x 47 next.
I paid $1080 for it with 200 neck turned cases , dies as is minus the scope of course.
Ill probably sell it once I finish my Defiance. It's been a great intro to the Creed tho.

Title: Re: pics of your rigs
Post by: Cold Trigger Finger on October 22, 2014, 01:52:23 PM
 Bass, one thing I have learned is.  Using the outer edges of the reticle introduces some inaccuracies into your shot because of the curve of the lenses.  That's why most guys dial the elevation. 
Title: Re: pics of your rigs
Post by: basshawg42 on October 22, 2014, 06:23:28 PM
Well I want use the reticle for over 700 that is the furtherest that i will shoot a deer so I hope I don't get into the sides at that distance

Post by: Cold Trigger Finger on October 23, 2014, 01:21:39 PM
 Your drop will prolly be between 4 thru 6 mils.  As long as your within the inner 50% of the lenses you should be ok.  Try it and see.

Mil/mil, which is a first for me. I had an inexpensive nikon while I was developing loads, so this is a big shift. I have used the scope exactly once so far, and I was impressed with the sight picture.

It has leupold rings on it. I have always used the dnz one piece mounts, but they did not have anything in 30mm at my local shop, so I took what appeared to be the next best quality item they had available. I cant believe it only mounts at the front post! Im highly suspicious the leupold rings and bases are going to last.

dead eye,
how do you like the richards micro fit stocks? i looked at them several yrs ago and was interested, especially in the prices. about 400.00 (and more) cheaper than the mcmillans, kelby, shehane trackers.
how do they fit? alot of inletting left to do? i think you are the first one ive seen actually use them. and the main question is how do they track? interested to know more about them. i am a fan of good wood /laminate stocks and for the price could change a few out on some other guns i have. keep me posted.
thanks brother.

  very nice rig.
hey , those little bastard breaks are BADD ASS AINT THEY ?? i have shot numerous rifles with them and in  my opinion for a true reduction in recoil they are one of the best ive ever used. a HARD RECOILING HOT LOADED 300 WINMAG just became very tolerable to shoot with one. warning - WEAR EAR PLUGS THOUGH !!  haha

Swamp - buddy of mine brought one out the other day while one of the boys and I were sitting around camp. Matched to his 308 savage hog hunter. He had some subsonic ammo for it - sounded like an air rifle. Believe I will start the process and already have a 300 Blk, just need some sub rounds and should be allot of fun! :)

I have an 762-SDN6 AAC suppressor and bought it to use on my 300 blk  and creedmoor.  It gets 99% of its use on the creedmoor.  I have read a lot of complaints about the lockup on the muzzle device.  But mine has some wiggle and I still shoot under .2 moa with my creedmoor.

What did you fill out your form 4 for?  you have to fill one out and have it filled out with the serial number of your can or SBR.

Reply for swampthang & Cold Trigger Finger

The Richard's Micro Fit Stock was a very good fit for the action, and required only the removal of a small amount of laminate in the bolt release area to attain proper operation.
The barrel channel requires extensive work for heavy barrels.

Pic of stock bedded with Loctite Marine Epoxy. It's rated at 3,000 psi, and is very viscous. It has a set time of two hours, making it very easy to work with. The epoxy is normally white, but I added pigment to achieve this tint.

I don't have a chronograph, but a guesstimate is ~ 3,000 fps based on published data & the extra 4 inches of barrel length on my rifle.
The guy next to me on the range was firing an 18" barreled 308 (loud enough to make me cringe, even though I have some very good ear muffs), so I expect to shoot some more respectable groups when there is no noise distraction and I get my technique down pat. Thanks for the compliments.

if i were to ever buy a stock rifle to hunt with i would have the same thing- the savage model 10 max 1 really surprised me. bone stock- i adjusted his trigger and it shoots factory 140 amax 1/2 in all day.

Here is a pic of my new build.  Just a few kinks to work out but I think its going to be a winner. It's a blueprinted Rem 700 with an old Kreiger four grove barrel.  6.5 Creedmoor with the neck reamed with a 2.2635 reamer.  (my gunsmith's idea)  He also moved the throat in about .030 so VLD could be loaded to fit in the magazine.  It has a Timney Calvin Elite trigger.  I like it but still no Jewel, but is suppose to be more durable, we'll see.  XLR chassis, with TPS base and rings holding a SWFA straight ten power.  It shoots sub .5 MOA but so far my loads have been on the mild side (2765 FPS) .  With all the mods to the chamber I wanted to start low.

Welcome to the forum Seddo.  You will find this is THE BEST forum on the web.  If you have an issue or need advice help  is here.  There are a number of Australian Creedmoor shooters on this site and they are planning a get together soon  I believe.
Nice looking rifle. 
Let us know how he(she) shoots.

Thanks guys, I hve always liked 6.5's and the more I looked at it the more I wanted a creedmoor. I don't get into the small primer locket issue.

I'll get a few more pics taken after its cerakoted.

Good to see another Aussie on here Seddo.
The Creed shoots just fine with the large primer anyway
Keep those build pics coming.

Thanks to everyone who has helped / advised me on this process. It has been a real learning curve i can tell you.
Picked up one barrelled action tonight. Just finished assembling it.
Pretty excited to see how she shoots.

The other Deviant Hunter is still being cerakoted so a little longer yet.
Stock shopping again now as the carbon fibre Wild Dog stock wont take the #4 barrel. :-\

Aussie,

Nice rifle. I do like a T5A stock, I have a T5 on my whisper.

Our rifles have something in common, they were all chambered with my reamer and by the same gunsmith.

 Aussie;  Right On !  You got it . Very impressive ! 
You've been a trooper thru the planning,purchasing and build process !!  Here's hoping it puts them all in the .1s !!!! And the barrel lasts 10,000 rounds . 
I'm very glad you have a Creed back under your roof.  Congratulations

  You guys have great tenacity !!!!!!!!
I need t get off my duff and get a couple builds done.
Both are great ideas and I have most everything for the first one . 338/375 Ruger
2nd one I'm even more excited about . 400 Whelan .  That would be a great one for you guys if your hunting buffalo or scrub bulls . 400 gr bullet @2150 fps .
The 338/375 should push a 250 gr Scenario at over 2800 and would be fun for truly long range hunting or a Matrix RBT at the same speed.

Cheers for comments lads. I'm pretty stoked.
Jason showed me a photo of his mates new Creedmoor & I knew it was yours Seddo.
BJ is comin away with us in 2 weeks so he'll get to see how it shoots.
Didn't realise you owned the reamer bud. Cheers for letting him use it.
He will be getting all my business from now on he got it organized & done before time.
Finally found someone who delivers what he promises.

Its not hard to get things built here, you just have to know the right people and expect lead times on imported parts.   My Creedmoor took me about 4 weeks to get together from when i decided i wanted to go ahead with it.  Stiller invoiced me for an extra Tac30AW action, i had a barrel and stock on the shelf so when the action arrived it was screwed together. It helps to be a firearms dealer.

If I ever decided to do a custom gun, I'll be in touch with you as any one I know how has built one it's been a long wait.


Time depends on what you want. Lilja take 12 weeks to make a barrel plus post and customs, I get stiller shipments 4-6 times a year and mcmillan take 6 months. Other than that it's pretty straight forward, you can book in a barrel job ahead of time so your not waiting when all the parts are here.

Seddo

Yeah your right the actual build time doesn't take long.

Its the acquisition of all the components for the build that is the killer.
These 2 guns have been my first builds but wont be my last.
It has been a hell of a learning curve though.

I was quoted 4 months for actions. It took 8.
I've since learned that this guy is well known for his BS despite being an excellent  gunsmith.
I found this out after he had my money so....

I was quoted 2 months for the barrels - ordered them together got 1 in 4 months the other in 7??
I copped the 4 but was pissed off about the 7 months.
When i asked this guy where my barrel was he said " I don't know what happened there"

The only luck I had was my T5A was in stock at APRS & Jason had the triggers.

I'm a pretty easy going bloke but I cant stand it when people constantly bullshit about delivery dates / circumstances & cannot communicate.
That last word is key if you want to be in business. People who don't have the balls to deliver the bad news will always fail & lose business.

I just got a refund from the LGS I ordered a HOWA stock from last June for delivery in October & still hadn't shown up by the end of February!!!
It was just a Bell & Carlson sporter !!!
This was paid for in full too.
When you ask the question they don't even look like they give a damn. Your can't get a delivery time that wrong. Not spending a cent there ever again & I've spent some there let me tell ya.

That's why I'm so happy with Jason from Adja. His prices are great , he's straight up with everything & a champion bloke on top.

Bit of a rant I know but it is what it is.

My only advice to everyone doing a build  is do your homework on who you deal with.

Jason gave you a good wrap the other night Seddo 8) by the way.

  There are s ton of things that can get in the way of getting a rifle done and inhand. My last full custom was a 416 Remington on a CZ 550 magnum action . I had McGowan do up a stainless 1 in 10" twist barrel in the factory CZ contour. With the rear sight base and under barrel recoil lug bosses integral.
[mergedate]1426376156[/mergedate]
And a McGowan muzzle brake .  I had  NECG , express rear , barrel band sling swivel stud and banded fore sight installed. . Put it in an MPI Safari Magnum fill stock . had it and the rings Cerra Coated and the stock painted to match the tan brown CC . It took a while to have it all done . But that was OK I had already killed a bunch of game with it before it was finally done.  But boy oh boy was I lathered up to get my new rifle back.  The gs mailed it first class. He insured it fully. But 1st class took 1.5 months to get about 500 miles as the raven flies. If he would have mailed it Priority mail , I would have had it in 3 days , maybe 4 if we were socked in with weather for a day.  I was so  flipped out I Thot I might have a heart attack.
[mergedate]1426376865[/mergedate]
That was the last custom  rifle .   I REALLY want a 400 Whelan but I may just get a 416 Ruger Guide Rifle and call er good .
For a lr 6.5 Creedmoor I'll just get a Ruger M 77 Mkll  Varmint/Target and do any Improvements myself.

The last factory rifle i bought was a CZ550 Safari in 458 Lott, the one before that i couldn't remember back that far. Once you start shooting customs or semi-custom rifles its hard to go back to factory. 
Title: Re: pics of your rigs
Post by: Cold Trigger Finger on March 15, 2015, 06:27:41 AM
 I disagree. I've had over 10 custom built rifles , including rebarrel to wildcat , more than 20 . I can say for sure I don't miss a thing by using certain factory rifles. Alaska has a way of taking really sweet looking rifles and turning them into ugly ole heffers in a couple years steady use. . Biggest single reason I'm not running CZ rifles now is they aren't stainless steel.

Seddo what do you think of your sightron?
is ffp?
What reticle is it?
Just curious, as I have brought 3 sightrons this year and have really liked the m so far.
Title: Re: pics of your rigs
Post by: Seddo on March 22, 2015, 07:34:07 PM
Chaz,

I like my SIII sightrons, all of my DTA's and Stillers have them. I have them in 3.5-10, 6-24 & 8-32 and I'm pretty sure i will get a 10-50x60 MOA for my new F Class rifle when its done later in the year too.  They are all SFP with a MOA reticle.  I like the idea of of the scope being the same when i pick up a different rifle.  For my other rifles i run Vortex Vipers in 6.5-20 and they are pretty decent as well.

I did a test with a mate, we put his 8-32 Nightforce and 10-50x40 Sightron next to each other on a bench and set them both on 30x. At 500y the sighton was clearer and brighter. I know its not a scientific test but it proved they are good value. I have run my SIII 6-24 next to a mates S&B PMI2 and a Hendsolt and during the day there is bugger all difference between them. What i consider to be the benchmark scope is the Hendsolt, i had a play with my mates and they run rings around Sightron & NF when it starts top get dark. 
Title: Re: pics of your rigs
Post by: chazwood on March 22, 2015, 07:54:36 PM
I have came to a similar conclusions, I've compared my S3 to NF, VX6 leupold and vortex razor and it's the same or better.
For the money I don't think you could do better.

Have you owned any of the S Tac sightron scopes
I like the 2.5 -17 I think it is but ave never seen one anywhere to check out.
Title: Re: pics of your rigs
Post by: Seddo on March 24, 2015, 07:20:20 AM
I havent had a STac but i have been thinking of getting one for my 223 so i dont have to change scopes when i want to use NV.  I havent had much luck getting the 6-24 to work with NV but the 3.5-10 works fine.  The downside of the STac series is the lack of elevation compared to the SIII but for what i want to use it for it wont be an issue.

Jason can get them.

Finally got the 2nd rifle assembled
Thought Id put up the pics. This is my first custom hunting rifle so & I'm really happy with how its turned out.
Well balanced the cheek weld height, everything has married up.
Will be stoked if she shoots as good as it looks.

[media id=866 type=preview align=center caption="photo (2)"]

Well the EH3 wasn't a straight drop but after 3 hrs of sanding i managed to modify the barrel channel to suit.
The Benchmark # 4profile  has about .750 extra straight shank than the Remington #4.

[media id=867 type=preview align=center caption="photo (1)"]

I finished assembling the whole thing tonight. Cerakote will be coming later now as we have the trip on the weekend.

 Seddo ; very nice and innovative rifles  !! I've never even heard of a 7615 but it looks great.  Excellent way to get an almost autoloader.  If more people had one of those they wouldn't be missing all over the country side.

The 7615 was pretty popular over here, we have heard stories of how bad sales were in the USA but its not that hard understand. For a few hundred more you can have a black rifle.

As we cant own semi auto rifles its the closest thing we have, the drawback ifs we are limited to 10 round mags as well. My state has a magazine limit  exemption for IPSC Rifle shooters but they can only be use for matches and practices, we are still not allowed to take one hunting. As they come the 7615 isnt a very accurate rifle, 1-3" groups at 100m is pretty much the norm and after a mag ful the light barrel gets too hot to touch but it beats using a bolt rifle for short range stuff.

Older son, 14,  kept his grades up so we went to Robert Gradous to build his rifle last weekend. (Glad I only have 2 sons) 
Like the last build with my 12 year old, the process was fun to watch.  Watching Mr. Gradous teach a young man to use a lathe, mill and paint gun is a sight to behold.  3 days later he fired his completed rifle.

McMillan A5 ;D
Bartlein 5r barrel
Jewell Trigger
Badger bottom metal
Nightforce 5.5-22 MOAR
Surgeon 591 Action

Hopefully I can afford to do it myself one day.  It was difficult not to jump in and help.  Next stop is the local 600 yd f class with both sons.

It's not a Creedmoor but I'm pretty proud of this little girl so I decided to post - 284 Shehane.  Many months of planning and input from a lot of forum friends and some top shooters across the country - special thanks to Tony (Swampthang) and Bryan (bsumoba) for holding my hand while I pissed and moaned and whined about making sure I made weight.  As a light rifle benchrest it had to come in under 17 pounds - I just snuck in under the wire at 16.9 pounds.  My buddy,  Joe Collier in Georgia (Collier Rifles)  did the gunsmithing  - he is absolutely meticulous.


Specs:  Left feed/right extract Kelbly F-Class Panda SA (flat bottom with integral recoil lug and 20 degree rail);  1.25 to 1.00 taper, 30" 5R Bartlein (1:9 twist) - this barrel is heavy and rigid (thanks again to Bryan - he provided both the barrel and the reamer); Harrell's muzzle brake;  Kelbly rings for the Night Force Competition; Jewel trigger set at 3 oz.; custom stock from Johnny Byers in North Carolina (laminate quilted maple and walnut); butt plate by "Jerry".  I wanted something to balance the appearance of the brake up front, so I took my first stab at free hand milling the butt plate.

I'm sorry the bench pictures look so fuzzy.  I had a gubber on the lens of my cell phone and couldn't see the screen in the sunlight.

yall should see this beauty up close and personal. i was there filming the very first shots down the tube while still fireforming the shehane brass...... all one tiny hole !!!!!
then i had the GREAT PLEASURE of shooting the next shots down her and all i can say is we better keep a close eye on the leaderboard when he starts shooting matches with us.
these pictures dont even come close in reality as to the beauty and quality of this firearm. took him FOR FRIGGIN EVER to make up his mind on what he wanted in components but as yall see he made a great choice.
no its no creedmoor but ANY serious shooter should appreciate his efforts and the beauty . i support him 100%- hell.... i babysitted this thing for him while he was working his butt off back home lol ;D

Post by: bsumoba on August 27, 2015, 04:14:13 PM
very sweet!!!!!  Everything turned out great.  I am a big fan of the two-wood sandwhich scheme.  You get good stock strength and good looks at the same time.  I hope it is shooting little bitty groups.  If you are shooting the 180 hybrids, look for a node around 2800-2850.  My gun shot very well there.  It initially was shooting around 2890, but I backed off and found a very nice accuracy node in that velocity range.  If you decide to try the 195s, let me know,.  With a .235 FB, you only have about 5-10K of jump before you go into the donut region.

I retired the barrel that has the same lot # as the one jerry is shooting.  It won its fair share of local matches.  If only I knew what I knew now, I would have saved the barrel more instead of shooting the crap out of it.  Now, 1400 rounds down the tube, it probably has too much down it for big matches, but now I am have a fireforming barrel.  But who's going to blame me for wanting to shoot it more :P

Now, show us some groups.  That's what we all want to see now. ;)

My Defiance Creed with the new scope fitted.
Changed to a Kahles 624i with a Mil6 reticle in a Spuhr unimount. 
I Wanted a Gen 2 Vortex but the prices have gone stupid here.
I'm very happy with the setup now.
The reticle suits my style of shooting better with an open centre.
Rob01 suggested this to me so I checked out a few with this style & liked them.
Target shows 10 shots at 100yards.
I don't get 10 in a ragged hole very often but I do get them.

I want to replicate this at 300 next.

Nice set-up.  I really want to build my next rifle in the "raw" after seeing this one.  My shorty 6.5 has been delayed due to the stock painting.  But its with a deviant and T5A combo like yours.  Good shooting.

Nice Shaun, I just set next my build into motion couple days ago so the shopping has begun...
I absolutey love my 624i (SKMR1) that I currently have on my creed. We can get the last gen 624's with mil 6 ret. for slashed pricing here in states. I'm considering one of these because I have zero doubts about the scope itself.

The Mil6 is still available here but it is probably old stock.
Don't understand why they discontinued it. Its a great reticle , better than some of their others IMO.
I know I read the SKMR was designed in conjunction with well known PRS shooter Shannon Kay so they are probably pushing this one more now & discontinuing others.

Yes then SKMR's come on the Gen3's which is what I have. It was explained to me that they made "internal improvements" as well as the new scalloped turrets. As far as I know the mil 6 reticle came on the Gen2's which is why they are reduced. The $600-$800 savings is very enticing.

Cant ignore that kind of reduction in price.

Amazing clarity edge to edge & bright too.
Might get one in 3-12 yet.They are running the same turrets at the 624 now.

It has the most forgiving eye box of any scope I've used to date also. Although I'm NOT "that guy" (lol) cranking magnification up and down a lot when I shoot. For the most part I shoot at 10-12x and leave it .

No idea. Call the guys @ Europtic, they would most likely know. Also they beat any price. I found the 624i $200 less thru a promotional offer and they beat it no questions asked by me just mentioning it. Good guys.

Here's a pic of my Tikka T3 Lite build of a 6.5 Creedmoor.  Ordered the barrel and it came in within a couple weeks and then happened to find a gunsmith who completed the build here in Canada in about a week for me.  The rifle dropped right into the Boyd's stock and the barrel was already free floating so I didn't have to do any work to the stock.  I might bed it in the future, but it shoots great so far.  I basically took a brand new Tikka 243 and took it apart for the build instead of looking for an action on it's own.  I installed a Yo Dave trigger spring and it's a dream to shoot.

[media id=1586 type=preview align=center caption="Savage 204 build"]

Savage Model 12 low profile varmint in 204.
CDI-Precision out of Florida did the work for the bottom metal.
AI 223 mags, never had a problem with mag lips that has been reported.
Vortex Viper PST 6-24x50 FFP + Vortex scope covers.
Seekins precision mid height rings
EGW 20 MOA aluminum pic rail
Atlas bi-pod
Atlas mono-pod
2x Accu-shot pic rails
(not pictured is the cheap plastic handle that fits the rear most pic rail to help carrying the gun)
Logger Head Cheek Piece - did the install myself.
Black Leather Montana Sling, widest they make - Midwayusa.
Forward sling adapter - no idea - decent hardware.

When the rifle is broken down this winter I'll be adding the Vortex Scope level. I also have the Vortex quick flip lever, I will probably put it back on. But when I originally had it on I could just seem myself catching it on something.

Getting a new stock for it this winter because the Logger Heads height adjustment isn't as fine as I would like. as I would like. Getting the action bedded and trued. After that - I'm DONE with this particular rifle and onto should be picking parts up for the 6.5 CM build.

Weight 14lbs. :P

Here is one of the better 5 shot groups so far. This was with amax 123's with 42.6 gr of H4350.

So far I only have 300 rounds through the rifle.

100-123 amax
100-140 amax
50 - 140 SMK
50- 140 VLD T

All of these were with variations of H4350 and seated .020 from the lands. All of the 140's have been ranging from .450-.800 5 shot groups at 100. The 123's have looked the best in the 42.6-43 gr range.
Planning on trying some different seating depths with the VLD's this weekend.

Hoping to find a 140 gr load that it likes soon so I can strech it out.

How do you like your ATACR? It appears to be the enhanced model, correct? Been looking hard at the F1 for next build. I delivered my barreled action to koter today,  chassis is supposed to be shipping out this wk...

Welcome Josh,  my son lives in winnfield.  He got a cm a few months ago.  Davtac in bossier built his gun.  He just got a scope on it and sighted in with 140 factory amax and it shoots pretty great with factory ammo. 
Title: Re: pics of your rigs
Post by: JChan on December 01, 2015, 09:59:14 PM
This is the ATACR that came out first. They came out recently with a newer model with larger turrets, a built in throw lever, flip caps and a digital illumination push button. I intended on ordering that one but I made a mistake and ordered the older model from Amazon. I liked this one too so I kept it. I guess my next one will be the new model :D. I wish I had the money to buy 3 or 4 of them. The only thing that I don't like is the fact that you have to turn the entire eyepiece to zoom. I normally leave mine all of the way up so its not a big deal to me. I have never looked at a F-1 model but I'm sure they are awesome.
[mergedate]1449028530[/mergedate]
Lee at Davtac is who built mine as well. I haven't tried any factory ammo yet but I'm sure it would shoot pretty well.

Yes I've owned two and the round has always been a fav of mine. With the new pills coming out the G1 and G7 is impressive. Berger reccomends 1:9 or faster
It's a 1:9
Glen check out the new 195gr Berger.

Home built here except for barrel as it was a blank.  I had to do extra work on chassis as MPA missed the boat as a drop in. End milled chassis on Bridgeport for proper clearance at bot. bolt release and shortened the barricade stop by .042" because when sitting in 1.5" slot (2x4) it was actually putting direct upward pressure on the comp. recoil lug I installed. I think I was the Guinny pig for their Savage LA run. Got it to work, just hoping it's a shooter...

Danbonzo is correct,
Its a Desert Tech SRS A1.
I will get the 338 conversion in 16 sometime.
For now I only have 6.5 Creedmoor and so far its
a lot of fun.
Only downer is that DT has put the 10 rounder mags on the
back burner  because of the MDR. Thats my only complaints

Thanks for the welcome Aussie65.
I have had the DPMS LR-6.5 about eighteen months, the Ruger American for about 10 months, and the Ruger Precision since the 23rd of this month.
The RAR is my main deer rifle. The others are for long range gong shooting. Saw my first box of factory ammo last week. 129 SST Superformance. Haven'the seen any of the Hornady target factory ammo in New Zealand yet. This makes the 6.5CM a reloaders cartridge in this country.
It is a bit of a pain being in this part of the planet when it comes to the shooting sports. I am surprised the Ruger Precision models got here this year.

Vortex Crossfire (2)  4-18x50
Not Harris bi-pod

One day I will upgrade to a dedicated target rifle, but not until my skills outgrow this one. If I can save up a little bit, I do plan on changing out the stock to one that fits me better and is perhaps a little lighter for hunting. I'm already toting around 280lbs...

I posted a pic yesterday.  Its would not embed in the text, it was just an attachment.  It worked but I think its better to have them in the text.  There's a grey area below the text are (only when you're posting) that says "Add files by dragging & dropping or selecting them".  I had to select a photo
I'll check it out.
Much obliged

Just go to Photobucket or Imgur and upload the photo and then they give you a link to drop into your post. It's free and easy.

Guys, the easiest way to display pics/graphics on any board is to upload them with an FTP program from your own server space.

Almost all ISPs (Internet Service Providers) provide free server space for all residential customers.  Most people don't know how to use the free resource.

1 - Download a free FTP program off the net.
2 - Setup your free server space with your ISP.
3 - Drag and drop all your photos, graphics, or files onto the FTP window and the files are loaded onto your free server space .
4 - Make a post on any board and place the photo where you want it to display by using 'img' tags at either end of the address to your chosen photo/graphic/file.

This method is the most friendly to the board you are visiting as it uses no data storage space from the board (6.5 Creedmmor) that the board owner has to pay for.  In other words the board is paying for you to upload pics to the board's server space. Also, when you use your own server space your pics will always display no matter what happens with board software changes, etc. Plus, you control the files and can add, change, or delete your photos easily.

Using free photo hosting websites is okay..., but it subjects your viewers to slow loading and tons of advertisements. Plus, adds cookies from the hosting site onto viewers puters.

Here is an example of a photo (my air rifle and chucks) stored on my own free server space and displayed for you to view with the address added to the post using 'img' tags.

Yes I have photobucket account and that's what I ended up using, but I feel it's a pita quite frankly.

Try Imgur. It's easier and less of a pain than photobucket. I don't just post pics here so having a universal link that can be used on many sites is easier than uploading the same pic to multiple sites if they even allow it. I am sure RM's suggestion works fine but too much tech for me to worry about. Imgur works just fine for my uses and never had issues with ads. Get more ads here now than I ever got there lol.

For anyone interested in using a free FTP program and free server space know that it's not that difficult to use. I am 58-years old, use a flip-phone, never owned a 'smart-phone', and if I can use an FTP app, you can do it also. ;D

They did a good job following the gunsmith's directions.  Did all work themselves except thread the receiver end of the barrel.

Created some nice memories there.  Older son shoots competition with me once a month.  Younger uses his to deer hunt.  In a ladder stand he looks like a door gunner in a helicopter.  We rig a sling off of the tree.   ;D

Adblock is broken now. If you use Google Chrome, then get ublock origin and be done with ads. You can turn it on and off for sites that know you're blocking their ads and want you to see them. For the most part though, it is completely seemless. kinda like when I stopped paying for satellite radio when they forced me to raise my subscription price. I was fine paying them for three years at a time, but they finally said, screw you, your price is going up regardless how many years you pay for. So, I told them, actually, my price just went down significantly...

Title: R700 6.5 Creedmoor build
Post by: SWGAShooter on June 30, 2016, 11:41:29 AM
Thought I would share my new 6.5 Creedmoor.  Built on R700 action with 26" #4 Krieger. Bolt and barrel are both fluted. Sits in McMillan compact stock. Talley LWs, Timney, and Leupold top it off.  Not the best pics, but it gives you an idea of the setup. Haven't shot any handloads, but factory Hornady 143 grs five shot groups are about an inch.  Hope I can reload some and shoot this weekend.

I can see why you didn't want to go for the 5th.  I'm likely to start calling my fliers 'pleading the 5th'....cause every time it's please, please, please stay in the group.  Nice shooting and nice rig.

New to this forum. A nephew knows I'm a Creedmoor luva and suggested I join. Was gonna post a pic of a build I'm deer hunting with for it's virgin season, but obviously my trigger finger works better than my computer retarded brain 'cause I sho'nuff can't figure out how to do it. I've looked at the "posting pics" posts but, with all due respect, they were confusing. I'm trying it from a laptop.
Can someone give an old dog usable instructions.
The rifle really is quite sexy.
Thanks in advance.

Post by: bbckfh on November 29, 2016, 10:19:47 AM
Thought I might introduce myself and my new rig.  My wonderful wife just bought me an early anniversary present...

Browning X-Bolt Long Range Stalker (26" heavy-sporter factory tube) in 6.5 Creedmoor, topped by a Leopold VX-R (it was on sale) 4-12x40mm with the CDS system and a wind-plex reticle.  It has the factory brake on it, and is threaded to match my Dead Air Sandman Ti.  I'd thought about the stainless fluted version, but not for $500 more.  That's a Harris it's sitting on (use what you know, right?).

It sure shoots sweet!  At the first 100yd outing to sight it in, the very first group was 1" for 8 shots!  That included the flier that was decidedly my fault for shivering.

It's going to be my hunter primarily (as a complement to my .308 with the 22" barrel), with some longer-range plinking.  Not really into competition yet, but it's a thought.  I've become pretty impressed with the external ballistics of the 6.5, and the terminal ballistics the Swedes have gotten out of the largely similar 6.5x55.

Good meeting you all.  I've been pretty impressed with the level of dialogue and expertise on this board thus far.

 It is only my favorite spot after a bunch of cold weather.  What looks like a grassy field is actually 2-6' deep water when things are thawed out. Most of this country is pretty swampy/wet above real cold. A couple weeks of 0ºF and its fairly easy to get around. Nice ad and flat too :-)

Was pleasantly surprised by the accuracy of a Venture previously, I just had to try this Ruger American Predator. Have yet to load anything for it. Looking forward to seeing what it will do. I find it very satisfying shooting in the factory class at a club locally and giving the more expensive guns a run for the money. Did very well with the Venture in 223 but came up a little short at 500yds. Should be able to make up that lost ground with the 6.5 "IF" it performs as well. It should be an enjoyable adventure.

Haven't figured out how to attach full size pic. /:

Just in, the match rig for next season. PVA build chambered in 6Dasher- reamed for Lapua brass.

Build sheet as follows:
Bighorn TL3 receiver (DLC coated) 30 moa base.
Bartlein 5r 1:7.5" Med. Palma finished @ 26" with PVA Mad scientist brake (jam nut, not blended)
Manners T4-A Elite, pillar bedded using a Badger M5 DBM and milled for EFR (if I decide I want to install). Bed is Devcon.
Timney Calvin Elite SS.
APA Tru-lock rings.
Kahles 624i

A few not so great pics:
(http://i665.photobucket.com/albums/vv18/Danbonzo/Mobile%20Uploads/2016-12/AF6D1B97-20E3-49FF-A228-28D0B56348EE.jpg)

Since I built it for Lapua brass, fire or hydraulic forming from 6mmBR Norma Lapua brass is necessary. To get the best possible form and crisp shoulder I used a ball powder 34gr BL-C(2) which takes it right to bot. of neck and then top it with some cheap 75gr V-Max's seated for a .050" hard jam. CCI400. I got it out to range yesterday for first time with 50rds ready for fire-form.

Before and after FF'ing: 6mmBR Norma Lapua L and formed R (http://i665.photobucket.com/albums/vv18/Danbonzo/Mobile%20Uploads/1FAEC621-8632-4F3D-B6D3-2E4488E14673.jpg)
Sent 3 to zero and ran a patch thru it just out of curiosity, zero copper.
Winds were gusting 10-20mph and it was a steady rain. I sent 5 more at a fresh target and then ran a soaked patch w/ Cu remover and let stand for 10, brushed it out for shits and giggles, zero copper on patch. Break in complete. I sent 25ish more rounds at same target in gusts that blew over the 100yd target board 2x. I managed to shoot thru an intermittent dense fog that at times just barely let me find a point of aim. Illuminated, I just centered crosshairs best I could.

Bare in mind this is just fire-forming using the wrong powder, cheap varmint grenades, a hard jam, and a thrown charge (no weighing after initially verifying charge)

Here is the result: (http://i665.photobucket.com/albums/vv18/Danbonzo/Mobile%20Uploads/2A1F5A1E-529E-4AEE-9030-EAB8EB32C597.jpg)

Got tired of walking out to 100 in the driving rain and standing the board back up so I retrieved target and sent my last 20+/- rds on steels. Headshots on a 44% IPSC at 400yds in strong gusts had me smiling.
I'm confident it will be minimum in teens, hopefully 0 MOA with a tuned match load. H4895, Berger 105Hybrids, CCI BR4 will be worked with a target MV of 3015fps

For reference- 6.5CM and a formed 6Dasher:
(http://i665.photobucket.com/albums/vv18/Danbonzo/Mobile%20Uploads/2016-12/CA3AC160-A2FE-4620-9982-3AE9D9C03DDC.jpg)

First impressions:
 •The TL3 is pure sex, controlled round feed and the mechanical ejector is the bomb.
•Bartlein pipe- I've never heard of a bad one,,, and I feel I've got a great one.
•The 100% Carbon fiber and Med Palma contour is a marked difference in weight under its sister 6.5cm rig w/ standard T4-A w/ mini chassis and the Marksman contour. Without throwing it around props yet, I'm digging it.
•To my shoulder, braked, this rig feels like a AR on the juice. I would rate recoil reduction on the "Mad Scientist" equal to an APA Little Bastard.
•H4895- umm, how much do I want!?... nice change from the H4350 perpetual drought.
•Barrel life- I'm hoping to see sub .5 moa up to 3k. Reports have been in alignment with that prediction.
•Only wonder I have- Curious to see how well it does out past 750yds in a plus 10 wind, although I'm not sweating it as there are some new cutting edge, (double take on the 6mm BC's) match and target pills hitting the market as I type.. 

I think it's worth noting that there is a 6Dasher mag spacer/ new follower conversion kit for the AICS 10 rounder's (they won't work in the Accurate mags without modification) I bought 2 kits, they work well and will help to insure proper feeding. 

(http://i665.photobucket.com/albums/vv18/Danbonzo/Mobile%20Uploads/2016-12/51B3E5E2-C7E6-4AA4-9CE3-2352B1CE77F1.jpg)

Last and by no means least, I want to give an XL shout out to Josh at PVA. The man knows his craft and performed impeccable work on this rig for me.. and totally ON SCHEDULE!  Communication was spot on thru the entire build, and on more than a couple of occasions he would hit me up out of the clear blue with unsolicited updates. Absolute pleasure dealing with him and his assistants (thanks Zach, beautiful bedding work- almost as good as mine LOL) Patriot Valley Arms, professional and top of their game. 

IMPACT!

Well, pics are elsewhere on the forum, but I do like this one. It is my first thread on build using everything I bought with the first rifle but the scope and the barrel, recoil lug, and barrel nut. 6.5x47 Lapua, 26" Shilen. I may have already posted, but I'm drinking and forgot, plus this pic has the 10 month wait can on it... The can is 1.5" diameter BTW.

(http://i1372.photobucket.com/albums/ag352/jeaplano/B2F46856-F0AA-4631-9174-AB032FC1D235_zpsdmkt7dcj.jpg) (http://s1372.photobucket.com/user/jeaplano/media/B2F46856-F0AA-4631-9174-AB032FC1D235_zpsdmkt7dcj.jpg.html)

I'll post a pic of this one when it's done:

(http://i1372.photobucket.com/albums/ag352/jeaplano/15391070_1674390952590479_1671107889088311851_n_zpswrtz69gr.jpg) (http://s1372.photobucket.com/user/jeaplano/media/15391070_1674390952590479_1671107889088311851_n_zpswrtz69gr.jpg.html)

I plan on having the full treatment to it. Cerakote, threaded for can, custom throat for 80 grain CC's, ratchet rifled 4 groove Shilen @ 28", and still not sure what stock to run. The action is a 12 single shot stainless. I've actually considered putting the 6.5x47 Lapua barrel in this action, but that just wouldn't be right. It'll be a 223 Rem, and it'll shoot like I want it too, except when I shoot it because I'm complete trash...

how tight is the action compared to a stiller/defiance ?

why did you choose the t4 over the t6 ?

how is the calvin elite over a jewell ? what weight is it ?


BIG congrats !!! that is sexy bud.

BIG congrats !!! that is sexy bud.

I'd describe the bolt body to receiver clearance as .001-.0015 sloppier than my T30. It runs smooooth. I believe in large part because of the interaction between the DLC on the receiver (body only) and the NP3 on bolt body and floating head. 

A) I like them,
B) I wanted a twin to my 6.5cm setup, along the lines of a trainer ala muscle memory..
It happened that I stepped in shit surfing one night at 1 in the morning, and found it on Manners site- ready to ship. My T4-A but in Elite layup, milled for the BH TL3 and a Hawk Hill Med Palma, EFR and M5 ready, 4 flush cups and and an installed BT-atlas pic rail. I thought I was dreaming when I re-read the specs 4x. Now to back up a few months...My bud bought a Black Forest before I started this build and when he first sent me some pics I almost woofed cookies laughing- I'm like bro it's fk'g pink! He said it wasn't in person.. I'm thinking "Sure it isn't, sure it isn't" lol. Well eventually I saw it at a match and had to eat crow- it's not, more like a ruddy Old English brick color. I instantly liked it....a lot!
So there on my iPhone, my unicorn, just waiting for me. LITERALLY I took off in the dark running down the hallway in a sleeping house to fetch a CC! 4 days later I had the exact stock I would've been forced to wait 6 mos for if I had instead found it necessary to special order.
Planets were in alignment...no brainer. Honestly I would of paid an additional $500 at that moment in time, I was balls deep!
Interestingly enough after some post purchase conversation with my smith, it turns out it was THE stock they [Manners] used to write the program for the new Bighorn, So the fit was literally perfect cause it got the TLC for the TL3! 😬.......Hey, you asked! lol

I like the CE. Crisp break and know exactly where it's at. They run reliably, even in dusty, dirty conditions. I run them right around 15-16oz. and marry them by feel, not a trigger pull gauge.
Title: Re: pics of your rigs
Post by: Kadams1563 on December 20, 2016, 06:59:37 PM
I ended up with my stock from Manners the same way. T6A Elite molded for Deviant tactical, Heavy palma barrel, Badger M5 dbm cut, atlas rail, and flush cups all the way around. I had it in about a week.

It was almost everything I wanted and in stock ready to ship. I also got it for under $830 shipped.

Only thing I would have changed is the GAP camo but it is growing on me.

•Only wonder I have- Curious to see how well it does out past 750yds in a plus 10 wind, although I'm not sweating it as there are some new cutting edge, (double take on the 6mm BC's) match and target pills hitting the market as I type.. 

I think it's worth noting that there is a 6Dasher mag spacer/ new follower conversion kit for the AICS 10 rounder's (they won't work in the Accurate mags without modification) I bought 2 kits, they work well and will help to insure proper feeding.

Last and by no means least, I want to give an XL shout out to Josh at PVA. The man knows his craft and performed impeccable work on this rig for me.. and totally ON SCHEDULE!  Communication was spot on thru the entire build, and on more than a couple of occasions he would hit me up out of the clear blue with unsolicited updates.

Just in, the match rig for next season. PVA build chambered in 6Dasher- reamed for Lapua brass.

Build sheet as follows:
Bighorn TL3 receiver (DLC coated) 30 moa base.
Bartlein 5r 1:7.5" Med. Palma finished @ 26" with PVA Mad scientist brake (jam nut, not blended)
Manners T4-A Elite, pillar bedded using a Badger M5 DBM and milled for EFR (if I decide I want to install). Bed is Devcon.
Timney Calvin Elite SS.
APA Tru-lock rings.
Kahles 624i

A few not so great pics:

Since I built it for Lapua brass, fire or hydraulic forming from 6mmBR Norma Lapua brass is necessary. To get the best possible form and crisp shoulder I used a ball powder 34gr BL-C(2) which takes it right to bot. of neck and then top it with some cheap 75gr V-Max's seated for a .050" hard jam. CCI400. I got it out to range yesterday for first time with 50rds ready for fire-form.

Before and after FF'ing: 6mmBR Norma Lapua L and formed R (http://i665.photobucket.com/albums/vv18/Danbonzo/Mobile%20Uploads/1FAEC621-8632-4F3D-B6D3-2E4488E14673.jpg)
Sent 3 to zero and ran a patch thru it just out of curiosity, zero copper.
Winds were gusting 10-20mph and it was a steady rain. I sent 5 more at a fresh target and then ran a soaked patch w/ Cu remover and let stand for 10, brushed it out for shits and giggles, zero copper on patch. Break in complete. I sent 25ish more rounds at same target in gusts that blew over the 100yd target board 2x. I managed to shoot thru an intermittent dense fog that at times just barely let me find a point of aim. Illuminated, I just centered crosshairs best I could.

Bare in mind this is just fire-forming using the wrong powder, cheap varmint grenades, a hard jam, and a thrown charge (no weighing after initially verifying charge)

Here is the result: (http://i665.photobucket.com/albums/vv18/Danbonzo/Mobile%20Uploads/2A1F5A1E-529E-4AEE-9030-EAB8EB32C597.jpg)

Got tired of walking out to 100 in the driving rain and standing the board back up so I retrieved target and sent my last 20+/- rds on steels. Headshots on a 44% IPSC at 400yds in strong gusts had me smiling.
I'm confident it will be minimum in teens, hopefully 0 MOA with a tuned match load. H4895, Berger 105Hybrids, CCI BR4 will be worked with a target MV of 3015fps

For reference- 6.5CM and a formed 6Dasher:

First impressions:
 •The TL3 is pure sex, controlled round feed and the mechanical ejector is the bomb.
•Bartlein pipe- I've never heard of a bad one,,, and I feel I've got a great one.
•The 100% Carbon fiber and Med Palma contour is a marked difference in weight under its sister 6.5cm rig w/ standard T4-A w/ mini chassis and the Marksman contour. Without throwing it around props yet, I'm digging it.
•To my shoulder, braked, this rig feels like a AR on the juice. I would rate recoil reduction on the "Mad Scientist" equal to an APA Little Bastard.
•H4895- umm, how much do I want!?... nice change from the H4350 perpetual drought.
•Barrel life- I'm hoping to see sub .5 moa up to 3k. Reports have been in alignment with that prediction.
•Only wonder I have- Curious to see how well it does out past 750yds in a plus 10 wind, although I'm not sweating it as there are some new cutting edge, (double take on the 6mm BC's) match and target pills hitting the market as I type..

So I got out yesterday am to fire-form another 50.
It was again a steady rain w/ I'd say a 6-7 W value.
Just shot @ the local $h!t range which only goes to 100yd. cause and I had the warden breaking my stones about getting back in time for the festivities..lol

5rd. Cold bore- I had whistle cleaned the pipe before I put it away last outing:(http://i665.photobucket.com/albums/vv18/Danbonzo/Mobile%20Uploads/2016-12/831CB95E-71F2-48E1-B85E-DB8905B9B8C8.jpg)

Very nice. I especially like all the nods to Savage the actions gives. Much improved, of course. I am starting to like my ejection pattern with the ejector removed. I am pretty good at catching the brass from a Savage action on normal ejection, but it is much easier to just open the bolt and pull the cases out...

Did you price that action, or pay MSRP? Oh yeah, that last group? Shit! That's the only one I would of shown... LMAO!!! Proud of you man, you will be taking home a lot of trophies with that rig next year bro, I know it. Hell, if you don't get sponsored, we're going to have to have a little come to Jesus meeting as well. :))

Thanks for this forum

Very true, old growth Walnut has become quite the commodity.
 I walked into a LGS about 30 yrs ago just to browse. I ask owner if he has any Win 70 Featherweight's in .308. Tells me he has one in back still boxed. He retrieves it and we unwrap on counter, before the tissue paper came to rest I tell him "sold".  Schnabeled forenend with the most unique dense flame pattern for first 7" from the front running into the checkering. I'd call it borderline Supergrade.. Still one of, if not my favorite rifle that I've owned. I'll never sell that rifle.

My RPR in 6.5 CRDMR.  The photos were taken today, February 11, 2017, at my gun club's 100-yard range.

(http://i705.photobucket.com/albums/ww59/AveragEd/IMG_20170211_101132451_HDR_zpsgomxatcy.jpg)

(http://i705.photobucket.com/albums/ww59/AveragEd/IMG_20170211_101109354_HDR_zpswshewc3g.jpg)

The scope is a Leupold side-focus 6.5-20x 50mm VX-3i target scope with a 30mm tube in a Leupold Integral Mounting System.  The only alteration to the rifle so far is changing the grip to a rubber-coated Magpul with a straighter grip angle - the same angle as a 1911 pistol's.  It's a lot more comfortable than the stock grip angle.  I've only shot a box of factory ammo through it to season the barrel but tried six handloads today with one group's holes all cutting one another.  The other five were an inch or slightly less.

I am in the process of loading six more with the same bullet, a 130-grain Berger VLD, and six different powders and hope to be able to shoot them next Saturday (if the weather forecast can be believed).

Thanks jvw.  This is my first experience with the 6.5 CM and I'm impressed.  I'm happy with my setup, but wish their were more and affordable options for Savage DBM in a PRS type stock...short of a chassis, Manners, or McMillan.  My group was a little under .75 in - final 5 shots at 100 yds using factory Hornady 140gr A-Max.  What impressed me was those were my first 10 shots out of the rifle and I was zeroing my scope.  I've only got 114 rounds through it so far and I've been shooting mostly at steel, so I'm not sure what my groups are now.

Danbonzo, I liked it there too, but my wife would have something to say if I left it there. Hard to appreciate something so photogenic when it sits in a safe with my other toys. I think it even looks good in its case.

Just got one of my rifles back from the gunsmith.

http://s50.photobucket.com/user/kilowatts71/media/New%20Bartlein%20Pipe_zpsyjlmizae.jpg.html

Used to have a Benchmark MTU on it which was a bughole barrel but pretty heavy to be throwing around.
With PRS finally getting over here have gone to a Bartlein Med. Palma & fitted an APA Little bastard brake.
My Labradar should be here in about a week so I can start working up a load.
When the next match gets announced I will be all over it.

I always have guys at the range that tell me "your rifle would shoot better if you got rid of the bipod and got a good adjustable rest".

Maybe so, but I prefer the challenge of sub .5 MOA shooting from the bipod.   Besides, it's not as heavy to haul around and I can set up as quick as I can find a firing position.  8)

My sons new 6 Creedmoor.  This is a trued Rem 700 action with a Bartlien 5R, 7.5 twist with a Marksman contour.  The muzzle brake is a lil bastard, not a coincidence...lol.  The chassis is a MPA BA Lite and the glass is the elusive Viper PST Gen 2 FFP 5-25.  Eli's first group at 300 wasn't fantastic but not bad for factory ammo and shooting off of a Caldwell Rock.  We didn't have the bipod adapter yet.

6.5 Creedmoor starting with a Cabelas 12FV, retail $419, on sale for $319 with a $100 rebate, sold barrel for $100. Net cost for action and trigger $119.  Added Bartlein 28" barrel and a Boyd's stock with a few additions to make it more suitable for 600 yd F-Class and 600 yd BR matches.  Shoots good.

Can't say when since its the holiday season but the very first chance i get i will be on the range, thinking about taking it to a local range that has an indoor range that you can shoot up to a 50 bmg in it just to sight it in.

Just threw a new MDT LSS chassis with m-4 style stock on my Howa barreled action.  I have to admit it's on my .308 until I get back north and pick up my 6.5cm barreled action next month (already waiting for me at the dealer). I just couldn't resist posting a pic. I'm REALLY looking fwd to trying this out after the snow melts a bit (March, maybe).  Barreled action, chassis, m4 parts were less than $800 shipped.

Just added a Magpul Gen 3 PRS butt to my 10BA Stealth, didn't use an adapter. The LOP is 15" to 16.5" , the adapter adds about 3/4" of length to the LOP, which would make it 15.75" to 17.25" . Here is what it looks like. I used the original Commercial Tube on it that is .020" bigger than a Mil Spec tube. I recommend buying a mil spec tube because I had to sand out some of the material inside the Stock to get it to slide on easier. It is still tight, without the adapter they sell for around $50.00 it is not as clean looking but it functions better if you ever want the LOP shorter than 15.75" , the stock comes with two pieces that allow it to either go on a round tube or an adjustable type tube like come with the Stealth. Anyways just letting you know what has to be done to use it.

Yup. So far have been very happy with it. I just need to be able to get out on a longer range. My local 1000yd plus range is public, but only for the shorter ranges. The long range is members only, and I'm on the waitlist for that one.

I've got a 100yd indoor range about an hour away, so even when the weather is nasty, I can shoot. Just a bit of a wait for lanes on the weekend, and I won't get there today as I had hoped due to some other issues.

My version of the 10 shot load development (using 12 shots):
All 12 shots are in .54 MOA @ 100 yards.  40.4 gr to 42.6 gr.  Using this process, the upper node looks to be between 42.2 and 42.6 grains H4350.  Velocity spread for that charge range was 10 fps.  I've loaded some @ 42.3 and will hopefully shoot them tomorrow.

  Ya, the eyepiece bumped my ball cap bil and went totally out of focus . and a bunch of specks flew up onto one of the lenses inside the scope . . I can't get the reticle and the scope image to come into focus at the same time. Except on 1 power. So its going back . I'm going to try the Nikon 1-4×24 Black Force on it next. Hopefully it will hold up.

 A 375 is a nice general purpose rifle up here. Atp. I have 250 gr TTSX BT loaded with 82.5 gr Rl17 with a CCI 250 primer. Haven't checked the speed on them yet. I'll also try H4350 and maybe Rl16 and prolly go to a Fed215 primer for all seasons performance.
 It's too much for fox , lynx, and coyote. But it would be fine on a wolf. I've killed lots of deer with the 375. Great for moose. Fine for caribou and good for bears. Like the 338 Winchester. Its a good all around cart.
 I need to get an inexpensive source of jacketed 375 bullets. Something around 50 cents a bullet or less for blasting. But will prolly hunt the 250 ttsxbt.

And yes all my rifles are strictly hunting rifles, i play with shooting steel out to distance but limit my shots to 600 yards on animals as just a little misread in wind is the difference in a killing shot and a gut shot and i don't ever want to lose an animal...

I love my HS stocks. They look great, and the webbing really does give a solid purchase when you're holding them by the stock. Even with the full length aluminum bedding blocks, they're still relatively light, but incredibly rigid. I do not think I've ever seen one of my HS stocks flex at all. They'll float straight taper barrels without any need to inlet in my experience as well. I run my silicone cloth under the barrel back and forth all the way to the lug when I wipe them down before storing the rifles as well. Great stock!

I know this is in the Bolt Action folder but this is too sweet not to share:)  Just received my Dead Air Sandman TI out of ATF jail and oh man does it look sweet on my custom 6.5cm Aero Precision M5 build and really makes it complete!  Shoots better then almost every one of my bolt guns too.

Borden BRMXD action, Bartlein 31" 8.5tw 5r barrel, Ezell PDT tuner, Bix'n Andy Bench Rest trigger @ 2oz., McMillan Kestros ZR stock, Hart R.A.D. recoil reducing pad.  Will be topped with a March 10-60x56 HighMaster optic with fine x-hair- 3/32 MOA dot reticle.

I wanted LSU colors but when the gelcoat blended it came out not purple/gold but, as I described in another post, gay disco nightmare pink/yellow :o  :o  :o .  I was going to name her Tiger but I think Nightmare will be more appropriate ;) .   Shade your eyes!!

If you saw it in person you would likely hold that comment Grant....LOL

Yes, the aluminum rail that is offset from the forearm is a bag rider to allow a lower CG in the bag and a longer 'wheel base' to help stabilize the rifle while aiming.  It also increases the flex in the system which is supposed to be a good thing....it will be my first flexible competition rifle.  The aluminum cylinder is a prop my gunsmith uses for photos.  Again, trust me, this thing would only look good through beer goggles!  But...if it shoots good I don't care.  The reigning national F-class long range champ (and record holder for 200-22x socre) Norm Harrold shoots the same rig to great effect. (his is a Shehane improved case...mine will be straight .284)  He said the flex is a little weird at first but it is easy to tune and I saw his waterlines when we were squadded together at the last National and they were incredible.  I am going to shoot a few cases tonight to get velocity readings to find where the charge is for 2800-2900 fps with a 184gr Berger Hybrid.

I am going to test RL-23, 16 H 4350, 4831sc.  It seems like H4350 plays real well with the Berger 180/184's in the .284 but I will work with RL-23 first.

Back on page 40 I posted a pic of my Howa in an LSS chassis BUT I snatched that chassis off, added a folding stock attachment and mounted an 18" .308 barreled action and came up with a nice little travel/backpack/bugout rifle so the 6.5 Creed need a new home and this is how it landed:

(https://i.postimg.cc/7LcC2Jdr/DSC-1168-Edited-1.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/mcY2xkTm)

I also started a new project, I got a hankerin' for a light weight mountain rifle. I don't NEED one just WANTED one.  Howa light weight 20" barreled action in a boyds light weight thumbhole stock. The goal is 6.5lb unloaded. So far it's 5 3/4lb without mounts or scope.  Talley light weight mounts on the way and I have a 6x Nikon scope on the shelf. Should meet the weight easily.

I could not get H4350 to play nice in my Shehane, but it’s happy with 4831SC. For the Berger 180s there is usually a nice node around 2830 fps. Robin are you going to be ok with that velocity or are you going for the next node up?

I am going to settle on the low/mid 2800fps node...unless the barrel and brass beg for more.  I want to remain under 4" waterline at 1000yds over at least 25 consecutive shots.  The guys running in the low 2900's don't have very good brass/barrel life and most say their waterline opens up a little by the end of a fast match.  I tested RL-23 over 6 charge weights shooting into a stump with the MS attached.  Upper 2700's with 54.0gr, 183gr hybrid at 0.015" off lands...was just compressing in the new brass.  I will try again in once fired brass but for new brass I am going to run another velo test with H4350 to find the 2825fps 'charge' and start seating depth testing.  I want a new brass charge that gets me in that ballpark that is good enough for local matches.  I have about 1300 new cases to form :D .  Actually, if this barrel is a great shooter I'll form about 400 (enough for a one week national).  If the barrel is average I'll form about 180...enough for a 2 day match.

Got the MPA 6.5 Creed today. Pretty gun. Heavy AF, but prolly not much heavier than my 223 or 6.5x47. Anyway, here’s a couple pics of it with my AR scope mocked up since my rings are too low. I’ll have to get some 0.96” rings for this rifle to accommodate a 50mm objective and sun shade. The rail is pretty low profile compared to the one I used on the rifle I sold. Anyway, here she blows!

Jack is that a Curtis...

As far as I know from the website it is. It isn’t branded Curtis though, so it might be sub-par for Curtis. Smooth though. It has a 3/8 MOA guarantee, so we’ll see. I’ll do a break in and some load development soon. Need some brass and dies though.

No not sub par. Curtis and MPA were tight even 5 years ago. Bet you’ve got a really good action there. By the way - that’s the first black chassis that really looks sharp to me. I am trying to tell myself I really NEED another 6.5. You’ve got me starting to drool! 😋

Spend the money Jerry. :)) Those groups were shot with factory Hornady 140 American gunner and 140 ELD ammo. Plus, it was me behind the trigger, so, a real shooter should be able to manage much better group consistency easily. Once I get my modified gauge, I'll be able to start loading some rounds for testing. I'm sure after I get used to the chassis and a solid bipod for the front, this thing will sing.

Oh and I almost forgot the cheek piece is a Hawkeye Customs, bought on Amazon Prime and not shown is the bi-pod it works wonderful but I don't remember who made that one.

That's about all I can tell you about my rifle with out swearing all of you to Secrecy, LOL.
