Hunter P. of Washington sent us some pictures of his elk hunt using an NSS Criterion Barrels Rem/Age barrel purchased from Northland Shooters Supply (NSS). His barrel was chambered in 300 Win Mag Match using a Remington 700 action.

Here are the parts Hunter purchased from NSS.

  • Remington 700 action
  • 28” Criterion Rem/Age barrel
  • 300 Win. Mag. Match in a Varmint contour 10 twist with muzzle thread
  • NSS precision ground recoil lug
  • NSS Squared and trued barrel nut
  • NSS action wrench
  • NSS Taper Loc Tool
  • NSS 4” barrel nut wrench
  • Forster belted go and no-go gauges
  • NSS knurled thread protector

Here is what Hunter had to say about his rifle and his elk hunt:

“I got my first kill with my rifle I built through you yesterday. Little further than I’d have preferred but practiced to that range a good amount (just under 1,000). Shot a spike elk (that’s all we can shoot in our general season around here) at 955 yards, one shot there. I was using 212 grain Hornady ELD-X bullets with 72.5 grains of H-1000 powder, GM215M Primers, and ADG brass. Consistently shoots in the .4’s if I do my part.

We also did a Montana deer hunt we went 5 for 7 on Mulies. Didn’t get any good pictures for you on that one. That was a great trip besides the -11 degree weather. Thank you again for everything”
