Shilen 6.5 Creedmoor Shoots The Lights Out

Jason K. of Michigan sent us some information regarding his recent Shilen 6.5 Creedmoor Savage barrel purchased from Northland Shooters Supply. Jason purchased a 28″ Bull barrel, NSS precision ground recoil lug, and NSS squared and trued barrel nut.

Jason had the following to say.

I’d say the new additions I purchased are well suited for my rifle.  As you can see in the picture, it shoots the light out.! Here is a good example of seating depth.  Top to bottom in the photo .003, .005 and .007 off lands.  You can see the group dial in each time.”

Thanks for the message Jason and happy shooting!

First Place Finish at Big Piney Sportsmans Club MOST Match

Congratulations to Mike B. of the Northland Shooters Supply sponsored shooting team for his first-place finish at the Missouri Steel Tactical (MOST) match at Big Piney Sportsmans Club in Houston, MO last weekend.

Mike had the following to say about the match.

“Thank you Northland Shooters Supply for your help in making that happen!

My Bighorn Arms TL3 action with Triggertech Diamond trigger match rifle ran absolutely flawlessly all day. A huge amount of credit for my win today, however, goes to a rifle that was not even at the match. That is my trainer .223. It is also built on a Bighorn TL3 with a Triggertech Diamond trigger, with a Criterion Barrels, Inc. pre-fit barrel. All of these parts were sourced through Northland Shooters Supply. This is a rifle that I shoot every day to train for matches, and it is one of the main tools I have used this year to improve my shooting. I would not have this rifle without Northland Shooters Supply’s generous support of Team Green. So thank you again Northland!”

Nice shooting Mike and thanks for the news!

Not Sure If Your Existing Rifle Is Small or Large Shank?

Great news! You don’t have to remove the scope, stock, or barrel from your action in order to tell the difference between a small or large shank barrel nut. Simply grab your tape measure, ruler, or dial caliper in order to know for sure. The most important detail, DO NOT include the recoil lug in the overall measured dimension. See the pictures below for an explanation of the measurement differences between the large and small shank barrel nuts. Do you still have questions? Please give us a call and we would happy to help.
