Another trip to VIR’s long range, accompanied my friend Rob and seven of his Dentist friends, a great group and fun to be with. I took my 6mm Creedmoor based on a Rem. 788 receiver and it shot as well as I and my Gunsmith thought it would. It’s a much lighter rifle with a 24″ Brux barrel which they custom contoured to match the factory 6mm Rem. barrel, it will heat up but not extremely fast and is light enough to use as a hunting rifle. It’s accuracy at long range would make it a really good “bean field rifle” as we call them around here. It’s going to surprise some folks in the long run.
Clean up Sunday was a breeze, these Brux barrels properly broken in just don’t copper at all, vigorous cleaning showed no signs at all. I’ve got right at 60 rounds down it now.
