6.5 Creedmoor Build

6.5 Creedmoor Build

Jason R. of Texas sent us some photos of his 6.5 Creedmoor build using a Shilen Rifles Inc. barrel purchased from Northland Shooters Supply.

Here are the specs on his build:

  • 26” Shilen stainless select match- small shank Savage- varmint contour- 8 twist with muzzle thread
  • NSS precision ground recoil lug
  • NSS squared and trued barrel nut
  • AT-One stock made by Boyds Hardwood Gunstocks
  • Sierra Bullets 130gr. Game Changers

Here is what Jason had to say about his build:

“3 shots from a 6.5 Creedmoor 26” Shilen that I bought from yall. Originally a Savage model 11 LRH 6.5 Creedmoor. I bought the Shilen from yall and put it on that action and put it all in a Boyd’s At1 stock with a Witt Machine brake. Shooting 130gr Sierra Game Changers with 43.0 grains of Reloader 16 powder, it does this on command…

I’ve taken several deer and quite a few pigs using the Sierra Game Changer bullets. (East Texas) good ballistic coefficient for a hunting bullet. I love em!

I’ve also got a 26″ Shilen 6 Creedmoor barrel that deserves its own email. It’s wicked accurate, too. Also built on a Savage and is built nearly identically to this 6.5. Thank yall for selling such high quality barrels.”
