Jon K. Pennsylvania reached out regarding his Criterion Barrels, Inc. 6 BR Norma purchased from Northland Shooters Supply (NSS). Jon had the following to say about his build.
“Just wanted to give a shout out for Northland Shooters Supply and Criterion Barrels. I put together a 6BR Norma with a Criterion pre-fit 28” Bull barrel mated to a trued Savage action and Choate stock. I used an NSS stainless ground recoil lug, headspace gauges purchased from NSS, and an NSS action wrench.
This target is from the first 50 rounds of load development at 100yds. I am very impressed and I’m already starting to gather components for a 6GT. NSS is awesome! You helped me get the right components and were extremely helpful on the phone.
I truly cannot say enough about how happy I am. I never thought this accuracy would be possible with a pre-fit, but WOW!”

“So I have my Rem/Age build all together and it came out really good, to say the least in my opinion. I just wanted to say thank you for all the help and knowledge on everything and will be buying more from you in the future!!!
I’m used the following for my build:
Stock- Stockys composite M50 long-range stock
Bottom metal/mag- Wyatts M-4 detachable magazine
Timney Elite Hunter trigger
Vortex Razor 4.5-27X56 along with their 34mm pmr rings and bubble level.
Area 419 hellfire brake.
Kampfeld customs from Idaho did all the action work, bolt knob and barrel fluting. The fluting is called wrought iron. He also did 8-40 TPI conversion, removed jeweling on the bolt, fluted bolt, cerakoted the inside of the flutes black, helical bolt shroud, and installed the bolt handle.
All the other components not listed were from you, thank you again for everything!”
Andrew J. of Georgia reached out regarding his 6.5 Creedmoor build purchased from Northland Shooters Supply (NSS). Andrew purchased a 26-inch Criterion Rem/Age barrel in an MTU contour with an 8 twist. Andrew had the following to say about his purchase.
“These photos are from my second criterion 6.5 Creedmoor barrel. This is actually the 4th Criterion Rem/Age I have purchased. All have performed wonderfully. My barreled action sits in a Choate tactical stock (sorry, no sexy $1000.00 chassis). It has an Elftman trigger and a Sightron 8-32×56, so nothing super fancy. The barrel currently has 350 rounds on it. The yardages of each photo is listed in the “range buddy” details.
The 100-yard photo is a 5 shot group with Berger factory ammo. Sub. 0.3 MOA on a 5 shot group at 100yds with SD of 12 and an ES of 16. 140 Berger Elite hunter with H4350 in Starline small rifle primer brass in the two at distance.

20″ Criterion 308 Win in a Heavy Sporter contour in a 12 twist
TriggerTech Primary trigger
Joe had the following to say about his build.
“This is a normal 5-shot, 100-yard group size for this rifle. I bought an Origin action, Criterion barrel, and TriggerTech trigger from you. Very happy with it, everything worked out well. I put this together for a carry hunting rifle, shooting 150 grain Sierra Pro Hunters with Viht N140 and ADG brass. I put your action, barrel, and trigger in a Grayboe terrain stock with Grayboe bottom metal, and topped it with a Leupold VX5 scope. It generates a lot of talk at the range.”

This is a 5 shot group at 100 yards using the 6.5 Creedmore barrel and Savage target action. You and criterion should be very proud of the great job you guys do. I know that I am extremely happy!
The bullet is the Sierra 142 gr matchking. H4350 powder, Lapua brass with BR4 primers.”
