    Custom Primal Rights 6.5 Creedmoor

    So I took this rifle out for some load development this weekend.



    OCW consisting of the following:

    142SMK
    H4350
    Hornady brass (new FL sized)
    CCI 200

    I loaded up a pressure ladder and found pressure at 43gr. I loaded an OCW in .5gr increments from 40.5 to 42.5gr. I test via the round-robin firing method. So I pick one target, fire 40.5, pick next target, fire 41, and so on. Once I have one round at each charge weight fired, I let the rifle cool for 20mins or so, and then fire another round-robin string.

    In the image below, you are seeing 3 shots, fired in 3 different strings, within a time span of about 40 minutes. Those holes to the right and above are single 6.5 holes from other charge weights. This is 42gr of H4350, producing a velocity of 2790fps. Those three shots are so tight, you'd tear paper if you tried to push a pencil through there. That dot is 1/2" and would easily cover that entire group.


    That was no fluke either. I loaded 10 more with that recipe, and ran 10 more dots. 5 were centerpunched, with the other 5 being firm hits on the black.

    If you are looking for a DTA with a ridiculously accurate barrel... we've got you covered.

    Thanks Sully!

    Barrel is 26"
    1:8 twist indeed.

    I'll get back to you on the color.

    So you offer barrels/extentions for DTA? If so do you offer both Gen1 and Gen2? I have the opprtunity to pick up a new Gen1 chassis pretty cheap but I will need some barrels for it. I can't find info on your site so please let me know, shoot me a PM.

    I am in the process of working up loads for my Benchmark 16.5" Creedmoor now (just something to play with). By the way your 44.5gr of Varget was spot on for my 16" 308 barrel shot .3 can't remember the velosity at the moment but it was 10 ES!

    Yup, we offer barrels/extensions for DTA in gen1 and gen2, both factory barrels and custom. We are a premier-level DTA distributor... so anything they offer, we can get.

    Glad that load worked out for you. That 16" 308 is fun for sure.

    So my wife was chasing me around taking pictures this weekend.

    Loading up some creed.


    Testing some creed.


    Seeing that group I shot.


    Shooting some rimfire in between centerfire strings.
