My Bergara B14 6.5 Creedmoor in its I'm done (for now) state.
KRG Bravo with Aluminum Arca Forend, Spigot, T-Slot Weight
Area 419 Barricade Stop
Area 419 Bolt Knob
Burris RT25 5-25x56 (Suprisingly good for under $1k. But I sure would love an NF or ZCO...)
F3R Machine Mount
Timney Hit trigger set to 12oz
Bergara Muzzle Brake
GG&G Tripod with some "I hate panning" JB Weld handywork
Sitting on my super stable camera tripod...

I recently came across some Hornady Black 140g in Academy Sports and I wasn't expecting great results so I only bought one box to try. I shot 4, 5 rounds groups all under 1/2 moa. This one being my best by .006 moa. I'll be picking up more i guess. I also had some Copper Creek Cartridge Co. 140g Barnes Matchburner that this rifle didn't like, with results of 1-1.25 moa.

So how do you like the Whiskey-3 vs the AT chassis?
I like them both, but they area bit different in feel.
The AT is idiot proof, solid as a rock with good feel and ergonomics. It has a shorter pistolgrip and needs some add ons to have the same adjustability as the KRG.
The KRG is more refined, better ergonomics and all the adjustability you could ever want right out of the box.
There is no difference in accuracy with the same barreled action used between them.

Thanks, I'm considering an actual AI AT and I'm trying to gather as much info as possible.

I am also considering upgrading my Bravo to a W-3 back end.

The AIAT is a great rifle, the action is slick as snot. Your Bergara build looks nice as it is, but if you feel that you need the extra adjustability and maybe the hinge so you can fold the stock, then the W3 backend is a great option. I run one on my Sako Trg 22 as it is.

Finally got out to the range today, been about 2 months.... It was late in the afternoon and really sunny out, almost blinding...

Added a new bag rider that pfl338 made for me. Only had time to put 10 rounds down range @ 200 yards.

Cleaned the gun and the first 5 on paper (200 Yards). Really hard to see with the bright sun :(

Whoa, you've got me salivating!

Can you give any idea how much a Bartlein re-barreling including smithing should run on a RPR in 6.5 CM? Thanks kindly......

Nice rig, love that mini Badger bolt handle. What BR kit are you running in the mag?

    My first post on Sniper’s Hide was in this thread, of this gun with 3 different 6.5CM barrels from PVA on it.
    I just received a custom 28” x 1.25”Ø 6BR Norma cut rifled barrel from KS Arms in Edmonton Canada, and later this month, when my Archimedes action and two stage TT Diamond gets here, one of those 6.5 barrels will go back on my Nucleus, and I’ll have 2 rifles to drop into this JAE-700.

    I got an AT in .308 a while back and then bought a couple of 26" Bartlein .260 barrels. Best rifle I've ever owned and was 1/3 MOA accuracy out of the box. It's one of the few rifles where I've never once thought..... "I just wish this one thing was different". There's nothing I would change about it.

    What's the weight on that thing?
    Right at 10 lb as shown.

    I was really hoping XLR would make the carbon chassis with a magnesium option to shed another half pound but no luck. I just really liked the look and feel of the carbon versus the element or envy.

    Include an 18-20-in barrel (not available in proof research prefit) and a lighter than current 22 oz scope with chassis savings could have put me as much as a pound down.

    Throw in a titanium action and fluted bolt for good measure and I'd have pulled about as much as possible out.

    My latest rifle is in, and I hope to shoot it tomorrow. I ordered a barreled action from Caleb at Alpha and Omega and my God it impressed me. I can't recommend him enough... my 9yr daughter wants to use this one for her black bear this year now.... even she is smitten with it. The Rex Silentium can matches so well..IMG_20210405_161134_701.jpg20210405_144237.jpg20210405_174354.jpg
