Picked up my new 6.5 Creedmoor and drove to the range to shoot. The wind west of Ft Worth was crazy and gusting so I didnt work on loads but just wanted to shoot and clean the barrel. I think I am going to love it when I get the correct scope on it. Here is the breakdown of the build and a few groups shot using 140 gr eld Hornady factory ammo. (planning to shoot the 143 eldx bullets in the future)

Bartlein barrel 1 in 8 twist
Boyd Stock (bedded by garland)
Jewel Trigger
Stiller Predator action.





Shooting in between wind gusts today but I know the gun is going to be everything I hoped for.

Very nice!

My Brother just got his Ruger Precision Rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor yesterday. Mounted a NightForce Scope on it and is bringing it up here tomorrow to break it in.

Should be fun.

Hope to get nice grouping....like what you posted.
