Picked it up from my gunsmith on Weds and managed a few hours range time yesterday. Only thing missing is the S&B 3-20 that I'm still waiting on along with everyone else. In its place in my PH 3-15 and Badger rings that I borrowed from my .308.
Shot some reloads (5 shots at 100yrds) using the 140amax and H4350 41.5-42.0grs.
specs:
Stiller Tac30
Brux 26in SS MTU 1/8 w/Holland brake
Manners T4A with mini chassis
Jewell trigger
Atlas bipod

That thing shoots terrible! I'll give you $450 to take it off your hands so you don't have to deal with it though...

Should have mentioned him in the first post. 'Smiths name is Randy Ryan. He's a one man show here in WNY. Goes by the name Frontier Gun and Sport.

I'm dropping off my .308 off at the plumber's house on Monday for quick barrel swap for a 26" Lilja barrel in 6.5 Creedmoor. </div></div>\
Didn't get a chance too. Poured on and off so I was lucky to shoot at all.

Re: First custom build..6.5Creedmore

Did you use Hornady brass or did you fire form 22-250 brass?

I used the Hornady brass. I didn't get a chance to try and form any other brass yet.

Great shooting. I love the 6.5CM, it feels like I'm shooting a BB gun out to 1000

It has been very happy with the Berger 140 VLD's and H4350.
