“I wanted to send a couple of pics and a few comments on the components that I recently purchased.  The assembly was scary easy and the results were scary good.  Yesterday’s trip to the range was really just to test things out and get a few shots down the tube.  I went through a pretty standard break-in, cleaning between shots, and getting it sighted in.  I attached a pic of shots 15 thru 20, the first 5 shot group at 100 yards.  The resulting 1/4 moa group was impressive!  It is going to be a hammer…Thanks again!!”

Gene was using hand-loads, 140 grain Barnes Match Burner over 40.5gr of H4350.  A load that he developed for an RPR and adjusted the length to work with the new barrel. Chassis is a Masterpiece Arms BA Comp in NRA blue. The scope is Vortex Viper HS-T 6-24.

Criterion RemAge 6.5 Creedmoor Build

Tommy R. of Virginia reached out regarding his 6.5 Creedmoor Rem/Age build. Tommy purchased a 26″ Criterion Rem/Age barrel in a varmint contour.

Tommy had the following to say about his build.

“This photo shows the results of my wife shooting with her 700. I can’t remember if we were 5 or 600 yds. The first shot in the group was left. Made a 2 click adjustment and my wife did the rest. Thank y’all again doing such good work. It certainly brings us joy.

The load she shoots is 38 varget under a 123 eld match in fed premium brass. It’s half moa no problem. Shoots factory federal fusion at about 3/4 moa. 

We are 100% satisfied with your products.”

Thanks for the message Tommy and happy shooting!

Father-Son Bonding Rifle Build

Matthew L. of Maine reached out regarding his Criterion 6.5 Creedmoor build. Matthew purchased the following products from Northland Shooters Supply.

  • 26″ Criterion 6.5 Creedmoor Rem/Age barrel in a Varmint contour
  • NSS precision ground recoil lug
  • NSS squared and trued barrel nut
  • Cerakote the barrel, lug, and nut
  • NSS action wrench
  • NSS 11 inch barrel nut wrench
  • NSS taper loc system
  • Forster 6.5 Creedmoor Go and No Go gauge

Matthew had the following to say about his build.

“I just wanted to drop you a line and thank you for a great experience I have had the pleasure of, since doing business with you and Northland Shooter’s Supply. I am a husband to my wife of 20 years and father of 3 wonderful kids. My 2 sons are 11 and 14 and I have a daughter that is 17. They keep us busy with their activities, sports, and interests. The calendar seems to fill up quickly.

With this on my mind, about 3 weeks ago I scheduled a “man day” with my sons”. No electronic devices, no phones, earbuds, or iPods allowed. On this day we opted for torque wrenches, barrel vises, and the tools purchased from you in order to swap out the barrel on a Remington 700P (.308 Win) to a new Rem-Age Criterion barrel in 6.5 CM (also purchased from you). We had a great time disassembling, cleaning, and reassembling this rifle and also explaining and understanding how these systems worked together to allow the rifle to function safely. As a dad, it was nice to share time and knowledge with my sons and to teach them the skills that I had acquired from my dad. We went out to lunch to grab a tool in town and returned back to install our new Criterion barrel. They learned how to set and use a torque wrench, and how the GO/NO-GO gauges worked. It took some attempts to set the head spacing correctly, but overall the whole experience was great. I would highly recommend the entire experience to any dad who wants to get some time with their kids doing something cool instead of them having their faces buried in a screen.

Oh, and an added cherry on top… The rifle is easily and consistently 1/2 MOA or better for two different affordable match factory loads (Berger 130 OTM and 135 Classic Hunter Match). This is a nice improvement for the same rifle that normally held factory Match .308 Win offerings to .653″ and .701″ over the course of a few hundred rounds. Thanks again for a great experience with my sons, good products and information, and great results!”

“My recent purchase consisting of Big Horn action, Criterion barrel, Triggertech trigger, Little B muzzle brake, barrel nut, and tools now sit on a KRG X-ray chassis with a Vortex PST 5-25×50 scope.  This was my first build but it was easy with the tools provided.

This is a tack driver! Shot a 4 group of 0.240 MOA at 200 yds with factory ammo in 12-17 mph wind.  Can’t wait to see how well hand loads perform!

The factory ammo that I shot was Nosler match.”
