    GAP 6.5 Creedmoor just came in

    Well the brown clad Santa stopped by a little while ago and delivered my new 6.5 Creedmoor rifle from GA Precision. Specs are:
    GAP Templar receiver
    28" Kreiger MTU contour 8" twist barrel
    Manners T3 stock
    Badger DBM
    Weight as shown 17lbs

    A big thanks to George, Moon and Nick at GAP for all their help and hard work in getting the rifle out to me. Also thanks to Hornady for providing the barrel and Tom Manners for getting the stock done in a timely fashion. Unfortunately I can't get to the range today and have to work tomorrow but Saturday will be the day. My team mate Tony's rifle came in today also so hopefully I can get some pics of his up here too as it is a little different becasue it's built on a Surgeon action, Manners T4A stock and has a Surefire break for his can.

    She isn't flashy but she's meant for business not looks. As some know I love the HTG stocks but when Manners came out with the T3 which has their MCS-T rear end and a forend like the T2 I figured I'd try it out and I'm glad I did. The stock feels great in the hands and with the higher comb, compared to the HTG, it doesn't need any padding to be usable with 1" height rings. If you like the basic style rear end but wanted more up front then try the T3 on your next build or stock swap.

    She certainly has the look of taking care of business, Rob. I'm interested in seeing how the 6.5 Creedmoor performs as opposed to the .260 Rem. A range report is in order ( like you need me to tell you).

    Thanks guys. I'll be bringing it out on Saturday to do a little break in and then next week I'll be shooting it more and taking it to it's first match at the Reade Range match in PA on August 2/3. I'll be doing some chronoing next week so I'll let you know how close the factory specs come. It should be close as we are running 28" Kreiger barrels just like the ones used to test the loads.

    Also my team mate Tony's rifle came in from GAP also. Here's a few pics. His specs are:
    Surgeon SA
    28" Kreiger MTU contour 8" twist barrel
    Manners T4A stock (gota love the KMW checkpiece)
    Badger DBM
    Surefire magnum Brake
    Harris bipod with POD claws from Phoenix Tactical

    I haven't followed the 6.5 creedmoor at all. I did browse through Zac's article of the comparison of the 260, creedmoor, and lapua.

    I was just wondering what your reasoning was to go with this caliber over the 260.

    Nice looking rifle as well.

    If I didn't sell my 300WM I wouldn't have been able to afford it either so don't feel bad Hornady helped out alot by paying for the barrels and installation also.

    Sorry JRP3 but we posted at the same time so I didn't see your post. We went with the 6.5 Creedmoor because we are sponsored by Hornady and they wanted us to shoot the round as it's new and they want to get it out there for people to see. The ballistics are basicly the same as the .260 and Hornady is loading ammo for it also so it's a win win.
