    Defiance 6.5 Creedmoor

    Here is another 6.5 Creedmoor that I have just got going.



    It has a McMillan Edge Tech A3 stock, Defiance Deviant Hunter action, 26" Proof Research Carbon Fibre barrel which I imported.



    I used a Timney Calvin Elite trigger with PT&G bottom metal



    It really seems to like the 140 Berger Hybrids, this is the middle of the three powder charges I tried tonight, good old proper carbon fibre barrel



    Here is the three groups, it was pretty windy tonight, typical of this time of year here.



    Overall its looking good, just need to sort a hunting load out for it now

    Very nice Greg.

    Why a creedmoor over say a 260 or 6.5/284?
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire

    Fits the magazine really easily, goes very well, nice Lapua small primer brass, is the flavour of the month & its what the customer wanted

    I'm not familiar with Bergers, are the hybrids not a hunting projectile?

    Those were the 140 Hybrid Targets, probably a little hard for our size game at those velocities.

    They probably would work better if the were going 3100+ fps out of a 6.5-7 Blaser magnum or SAUM, WSM etc

    What powder are you using to get those speeds?
