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.

What kind of hunting rounds are you folks going to use? My rifle will be here next week. I got the predator and 100 rds of 140 led to get used to the gun but an wondering what to use for hog and deer. Thanks
