Criterion 223 Rem/Age Success

Les V. 6mm

Les V. of North Dakota reached out regarding his Criterion Rem/Age 223 barrel purchased at Northland Shooters Supply (NSS). Les used the following components for his build:

  • Remington Short Action
  • 26″ Criterion Rem/Age 223 Rem Bull barrel purchased from NSS
  • Rifle Basic Trigger purchased from NSS
  • Nightforce 20 MOA Rail
  • Burris XTR II 4-20X50 FFP
  • Burris 34mm Signature Rings
  • ORYX Chassis

Les had the following to say about his build.

“Today we went out and shot 16 rounds through my build to sight it in and get an idea of how the desired load would work.

The brass was sized and primed with CCI small rifle primers. Hodgdon Leverevolution powder pushed Hornady 75 grain ELDs at 2975fps.

After getting on target at 100 yards, I shot two groups. The second group was significantly smaller than the first.

Buy Criterion barrels from Northland, tighten them onto untrued Remington actions and you will shoot bungholes!
