Matt V. of Tennessee recently sent us some photos of his 6.5 Creedmoor Criterion-Savage build. Matt had the following to say.
“I spoke with you about my 6.5 Creedmoor 26in Criterion heavy barrel a few weeks ago that I bought from you. I recently bought a Bell and Carlson Savage M40 stock and that solved my problem with weird groups I was getting and shots being strung out vertically. This barrel is completely free floated from the recoil lug on out and the stock has an aluminum bedding block in it. Anyways, this is just more or less a feedback about the barrel which prints incredibly small groups now and with about 800 rounds through it. Here’s some pics that I wanted to show. Anyways, thanks again and I will definitely be buying more criterion barrels from you.”
Joseph K. of Georgia recently sent us a photo of his 2016 deer hunt where he took down his doe at 1000 yards with his 6.5 Creedmoor Criterion barrel. Joseph had the following to say.
“I took this Doe last evening at 1000 yards with the 6.5 Creedmoor. Amazing rifles, can’t say enough about the CBI barrels. Every one that I’ve built has been perfect 1000 yard accuracy, even with Hornady factory ammo. This was with my hand load -Berger 140 VLD bullet. Perfect heart lung shot and she ran about 70 yards.”
Jamie L. of North Carolina recently sent us some photos of his 1000 yard shoot with his 6mm Dasher Shilen barrel. Here is what Jamie had to say.
“Savage 12 target action using a Shilen 6mm dasher with an 8-twist. With NSS trued barrel nut and recoil lug. Pacific Tool and Gauge bolt face and Dave Lambert lift kit.
Shot the targets at Harry Jones range and won the 6 match Agg. My load is RL 15 with EPS 106 bullets.”
Donnie C. of Florida sent us some photos of his handmade stock he is putting together for his new Remington 783 Criterion barrel. He started this stock from a bare piece of wood. That is some phenomenal handy work Donnie!
Dan A. of Idaho recently sent us some photos of his Pronghorn Antelope hunt for the 2016 season. He was using his 300 Win Criterion Rem/Age barrel. He shot this antelope at 720 yards using 215 grain Berger hybrids at 2865 fps.
Joseph K. of Georgia recently sent us a few pictures of his recent 6.5 Creedmoor Criterion barrel and Savage target action build. Below is a picture of his 1000 yard target. The diameter of the red dot is just about 1.5 inches and the group is a little over 3 inches at 1000 yards.
