Ricky had the following to say about his build.

“This is my finished 6.5 Creedmoor with the Criterion varmint contour, 1-8 twist, and the Remington trued action. I used Hd precision bottom metal, a 4-round magazine, and a Vortex pst scope 5-25x5030mm tube held down by night force rings second focal plane. Just my preference as I don’t care for the floating reticle in the first. I went with a Greyboe stock in olive with black and my SilencerCo omega on the end.”

Ricky also included a photo showing his grouping as he dials his rifle in.

Looks like a great shooter Ricky. Thanks for the message and happy shooting!

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.”

Matt W Oryx DIY Solo Hunt

First Solo DIY Oryx Hunt a Success

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.

  • Criterion heavy sporter 24″ .280 AI (Northland Shooters Supply Product)
  • TriggerTech primary trigger (Northland Shooters Supply Product)
  • Stocky Stocks long range – Composite
  • Magpul hunter bottom metal
  • Ziess Conquest zplex 2-10x44
  • Matthews kydex cheek riser

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!

“I’m a little bit tickled to show you this and I couldn’t believe my eyes when I shot this 800 yards three shot group with factory sig elite ammo 140 gr OTM. This is the Shilen select match Savage pre-fit you sold me in a varmint profile 1-8 twist. It’s on my Savage model 11 trophy Hunter action in a B&C stock and a vortex pst 6-24×50 scope. Sweet!!!! I know it looks like two shots but I know the third shot covered 1/2 of the first impact.”

Thanks for the message William and happy shooting!

Savage pre-fit barrel

Barrels Purchased at Northland Get The Job Done for Long Range Hunting

Chris L. of Washington sent us the following information regarding his 4 barrels purchased from Northland Shooters Supply.

“This will be my fourth Savage pre-fit barrel ordered from you (3 Criterion and 1 Shilen). Every barrel is an absolute tack driver. They each shoot bug-holes and have produced countless long range kills on rock-chucks and coyotes. These pictures are an example of my 28” Criterion barreled Savage LRP chambered in .260. I shot these at 756 yards and 847 yards. Both coyotes were bedded and didn’t know what hit them. Thanks for your advice and for selling quality products.” 

Thanks for the message Chris and happy shooting!
