I've named my 308 rifle "Dino", in reference to The Flintstones' pet. So....well before 1970. If Hornady, Federal, Prime, or whomever markets reasonably-priced 6 BR/BRA/Dasher match ammo, then the 308 will go pretty quickly. Until then, I think I'll keep the dinosaur for training purposes. 6.5 Creedmoor is pleasant to shoot after training with a three-oh-hate.

6 Creedmoor components are at Black Canyon Customs right now. He's backed up a bit with work; I'll have the rifle in a couple of weeks. Having the Bartlein BB steel barrels cut to 26". So I'll probably be above the MV speed limit for some matches. I have Hornady and Federal/Berger ammo in the basement for testing. Over time I'll see how the BB steel holds up, and if the 7.5 twist is an issue. I may need a set of rings for the scope, but should have everything else.

Cool! Look forward to see how it shoots

Ahh…… ditch the persimmon wood, 8-track Big Grin Train with the 6.5, compete with the 6!

I finally got some good groups out of my Savage! I purchased that US Optics 17X scope that BlueDog loaned me. The offer was too good to pass up. Thank you BD!



I went through and re-leveled the scope and torqued the rings. Up until now, I was only getting 3/4"-ish groups out of it and I at least wanted it to shoot under 1/2 MOA.

I loaded up some 168 grain Nosler CC's today and headed out to test some rifles. The rifle was much more consistent today than in previous trips. I got dialed in at 100 and shot two 5-shot groups. The first one was right at 1/2" and the second was 0.412" center to center.

I've always wanted this to shoot ragged one-hole groups and now it is.

Now that I know it's close, I'll tweak the load and take a little more care in case prep.



Tony.
