6 Dasher Shouldered Prefit Build
Scott W. of Colorado sent us some info on his 6 Dasher shouldered prefit build using a Criterion Barrels Inc. barrel and Zermatt Origin action purchased from Northland Shooters Supply.
Here are the specs on Scott’s barrel:
- 26” Criterion- shouldered prefit- MTU contour- 6 Dasher- 7.5 twist with muzzle thread
- Zermatt Arms Origin action
- NSS knurled thread protector
- McMillan A-5 stock
- Hawkins bottom metal
- MDT BR magazine
Here is what Scott had to say about his build:
“I shot my Origin MTU Criterion 6 Dasher barrel from you guys in a 600 yard Benchrest match two weeks ago and it kicked ass. I attached some pictures of the targets, this was shot in the Tactical Class in a Western Colorado Freedom Benchrest 600 yard Match on the 8th of July!
The load I used for the Dasher was 31.8 grains of Shooters World Precision powder and a 105 Berger VLD jammed 10 thousands into the lands. It’s a medium load with no pressure and it’s one of my favorite loads for the caliber.
Anyway, that shouldered Origin Dasher barrel just shoots, I have several Dasher barrels in Bartlien and Brux and this Criterion barrel shoots just as good or better than they do. I put a Criterion barrel on my AR-15 Match rifle and it took my son and I both to High Master in NRA Tactical Rifle Class, so Criterion barrels are really fantastic barrels. Here is a picture of the rifle, Origin action, Jewel trigger, McMillian A-5 stock and Hawkins magwell with a MDT 6Br mag that feeds like butter and of course the Criterion Dasher barrel.”
