Installed the barrel with zero head space and headed to the range. Shots 6-10 @100 yards were "a hole". Approximately .250 for shots. Will be ordering another 6 Creedmoor barrel identical to this one. 26"/8 twist/ .150 FB.

Great barrel. Installs just like a savage with the barrel nut. It took about 5-6 weeks to arrive, which is super fast for anyone that has waited 4+ months for barrels from other companys. I ordered a medium palma profile, 6.5 creedmoor, 26" barrel. Right off the bat it was shooting 3/8" groups with Hornady 140ELDM factory loads. Add this barrel was FAST! Those Hornady factory loads clocked 2845fps. (verified with two different chronys) My handloads shoot a little tighter groups, and I'm getting 2935fps with 140gr Nosler RDFs (43.2 gr RL16.) I will be buying another!
