6.5 Creedmoor Remage Build Success

Gary V 6.5 Creedmoor

Gary V. of Missouri sent us some photos of his 6.5 Creedmoor Remage build using a Criterion Barrels Inc. Barrel purchased from Northland Shooters Supply (NSS). Here are the components Gary used on his build.

  • 28”- Criterion- Rem/Age barrel- bull contour- 6.5 Creedmoor- 8 twist- 11 deg target crown
  • NSS precision ground recoil lug
  • NSS squared and trued barrel nut
  • Forster Products headspace gauges
  • Remington 700 Receiver
  • KRG Bravo chassis
  • MDT AICS magazines
  • Weaver 20MOA base
  • Athlon Ares BTR Gen 2 Scope

As you can see, making sure your action is within spec can make a huge difference in your accuracy.

Here is what Gary had to say:

“I wanted to touch base with you and let you know I finally got my RemAge build figured out, turns out on the bolt, I only had 75% contact on one lug. I trued the lug interface, lapped the lugs to 100% contact, and squared the face of the receiver. She hammers now! Shot a .126” 5 shot group today behind 140 Hornady ELDM with 42.4grains of H4350 powder @ 2.825”, and Lapua brass. Thanks again for the quality components and phone calls when I was having issues.”
