.223 Criterion Remage Build

Bill A

Bill A. of Illinois reached out regarding his .223 Criterion Remage build that he purchased from Northland Shooters Supply. Bill purchased the following products from Northland for his build.

  • 26″ Criterion Remage 223 Rem in an MTU contour.
  • NSS Precision Ground Recoil Lug
  • NSS Squared and Trued Barrel Nut
  • NSS Action Wrench
  • NSS Taper Loc System
  • NSS 4″ Barrel Nut Wrench

Bill had the following to say about his build.

“I purchased a .223 match Criterion Remage and received my order 2 days later and went to work assembling my new toy. I installed the barrel on a bare factory fresh 700 action. First off, this is easier three-fold than even assembling an AR15 and I can do that with my eyes closed, as many of us can. When completed with the rifle, I took it out to 100 yards and including zeroing, I sent a total of 68 rounds down the barrel before it started really coming together. By coming together I mean a .423” group with factory Frontier 75gn HPBT ammo.

That’s ridiculous to perform like that right out the box! Don’t waste your money on a factory built rifle. Buy the bare 700 action and your preferred caliber. Do it yourself and have a WAY better rifle and the pride of doing it yourself. I’m an NSS customer for life.”

Bill was also using a Gen 1 Masterpiece Arms competition stock and a Vortex RZR HD scope.

Thanks for the note Bill and happy shooting!
