Took the 6.5 Creedmoor out for the first time today, the rifles an absolute hammer...
The Badger action is smooth as butta, and the thing performs flawlessly, as expected... The groups aren't stellar, but I think they reflect well on what the rifle will do. I messed with it last, and had been shooting for 4 hours doing load development for other rifles prior.
I think next time out, I'll be able to sit down behind her and produce sub .5 MOA groups consistently.
Crappy cell phone pics b/c I forgot my camera...
Here's some targets
This was the first shots fired... The first two were sighting in the scope, then a 4 shot group of what was left in the mag.
This was the the first 5 shot group I shot
Next 5 shot group with 2 "flyers".... I need to check my form, b/c throughout the day, my "flyers" were consistently hitting to the right. Doubt it's a coincidence...
3rd 5 shot group in the middle, and a 10 shot group next to it. All 15 shots fired in succession, only stopping between the 5 and 10 shot string long enough to load the mag.
I love the new rifle, only thing I'm dissapointed with is the velocity (Avg. 2640 fps). I didn't think the 25" barrel would slow it down that much, but oh well.
I think GAP built me a winner here, we'll see how she does at HardRock this weekend!
