How is your CREEDMOOR shooting? The only DPMS I have shot (belongs to mtj555) in 6.5 Creed is a tack-driver with 140gn A-MAX. Does yours have a 4-stage trigger like they shipped in Mike's? An SSA-E will get it all fixed up if you haven't already.
Mine came with a J P Enterprize trigger. It shoots really good with the same load . I reloaded the same load that is listed on the Hornady box and shot exactly the same.Dont really need to experiment with loads.It shines with H4350
Just curious but why did you flute it? I have a DPMS .223 with heavy varmint 24 in. barrel. It takes a lot of shooting to heat it up. It will shoot 1/2 inch groups pretty consistently too. I'm not convinced that fluting is worth the effort in reducing heat and there is some evidence that fluting the barrel after it is rifled can be detrimental to accuracy. Some of the major barrel makers will not flute a barrel for that reason. I'm not trying to rain on the parade here just curious as to why it was fluted and if it was done for heat dissipation do you see any improvement now? Thanks for the info.
When you go to a bench rest match and see all the top shelf rifles, one thing you will not see are flutes.........Oh, maybe a newbie who thinks he needs them. Also, by themselves, they reduce very little weight. Now if you were building a bolt rifle for a high altitude sheep hunt and really wanted to get the gun as light as possible.......along with fluting the bolt and skeletonizing the bolt handle along with graphite stock and a few other mods, the total package would benefit from it. But yes, Keith got it right. The look cool
I think I'm going to get a harrels tactical brake installed on mine. That stock trigger was horrific to say the least. I love the Geissle SSA-E. As soon as I am done shooting up all the 140 Amax I purchased. I'm going to mess around with the 140 grain Hunting VLD. The 140 Amax puts a hurting on predators and deer
