Criterion 6.5×47 Lapua Build

Art C Build

Art C of Massachusetts reached out regarding his 6.5 x 47 Criterion build. Art purchased the following products from Northland.

  • 28″ Criterion 6.5×47 Laupa in a Bull contour
  • NSS precision ground recoil lug
  • NSS squared and trued barrel nut
  • NSS 4″ barrel nut wrench
  • NSS action wrench

The photo is Art’s target at 200 yards with .12 MOA.

Art had the following to say about his build.

“The Criterion barrel was a cinch to change!  I set it up with the identical headspace as my 6.5×47 PRS rifle.  Shoots the same load, same dye settings. same performance!! The only difference is the Criterion has an additional .0005” of BTO which makes no difference in results.  This rifle will be my 200/300 yard Egg Shooter.

Thanks for your assistance! I’ll be ordering a barrel for my 6.5×284 hunter in the next couple of months.”

Thanks for the message Art and happy shooting!
