6.5 Creedmoor Remage Build Success
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.”
