.223 Criterion Remage Build

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!
