Just wondering if any hide members have done any short barrel 6 creed build. I’m talking 16-20 inch range. Had a 20 inch 308 heavy palma spun up last year before deer season and for hunting off the ground with a tripod I was very happy with it. Ran it suppressed in a mdt xrs on a terminus Zeus action. So was wanting something else to run suppressed off an ARC Archimedes action. So far only have the action and Triggertech Diamond 2 stage. Still haven’t decided on chassis/stock, barrel length or caliber. But really think a 6 creed suppressed would be sweet for deer, hogs, and possibly yote. Plus to me the benefit of the 6 creed or the 6.5 would be lighter recoil as I’d love to get my nephews and my daughter behind something this year too.

I'm thinking about doing a short barreled 6.5 Creedmoor for a hunting gun.

I have a 6.5 Creedmoor barreled action (brand new barrel essentially), sitting around collecting dust. It's a 24" MTU currently, so thinking of getting it chopped down to ~16-18" and having some real heavy fluting done to reduce the weight. Will also be ran suppressed.

Curious to hear others experience on this. Not a 6 Creed, but similar to what you are trying to do.

I just threw one together, but haven't had the chance to shoot it yet. I'm looking forward to hunting with it - should handle very well. Wanted something my kids could grow with as well and I think it's going to be perfect.

That’s a great looking rig there. Let us know how she shoots after you get some time behind her.

    Had a 16" 6creed on a badger action, have a 20" 6creed on a stiller now. Also have a 20" 6creed on an ai. I don't remember speed of 16" but drt'd a nuisance permit doe at 798yds with it and 105 hunting vld. The 2 20" 6creeds run 2920 and 2950, both with 105 hybrids and rl16.

    Nice I appreciate the info man. Sounds like 18-20 inch will definitely get the job done for how I’m wanting to use it.
