6 Dasher Shouldered Prefit Build

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.”
