Robert T. of Oklahoma recently sent us some photo’s of his most recent Northland Shooters Supply build.
Robert purchased a 28″ Shilen 6mm dasher Bull barrel and was getting a great grouping at 270 yards working with his new rifle.
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.
Northland Shooters Supply is working with Bat Machine Co. for a Northland exclusive action with a Remington 700 thread and Remington 700 bolt nose diameter. This new action will be perfect for your Rem/Age build. Click the link to read more!Bat Machine
Josh M. of Florida recently sent us some information regarding his recent 6.5 Creedmoor Criterion build. Josh had the following to say.
“Great shooter at 100 yards. Wow! I was using Hornady 140g ELD-M #81500 factory ammo, a Savage SA action, a 6.5 Creedmoor Criterion Barrel, and a Bell & Carlson m40 stock. The recoil lug is bedded. I used a lightened Savage trigger spring, an EGW scope mount, Burris XTR rings, and 5-25 xtr11 scope.
That’s a nice looking rifle Josh. Happy shooting!

Matt W. of New Mexico recently sent us a picture of his first solo Oryx hunt using products purchased from Northland Shooters Supply. Matt had the following to say.
“I was using the following components for my build.
It was my first solo DIY Oryx hunt. The location was here in New Mexico and it was off the White Sands Missile Range. They offer once in a lifetime hunts on the missile range. It is a lottery system and I drew out last year but had no luck. I went out and glassed super early and was only spotting the ones on the missile range. They actually sit along the fence line because they know they are safe as long as they stay on the range side. The morning I glassed them up in the range and they walked deeper so I decided to go for a hike and approximately 5 minutes into my walk, I jumped 2 out of a river bed and made an offhand 220-yard shot as it was trotting away.”
Thanks for the message and great hunting Matt!
