EuroOptic had these Rem 700 SA non-designated barreled actions on sale months ago for a killer price.  I was looking for an inexpensive set-up for a loaner specialty pistol for my WY-SHOT folks that was easy to purchase ammo for, and was not a 223 Remington.
Hence, a 6.5 Creed with a 1-8 Twist, Sendero Taper.
Jim Rockwell made the laminated rear-grip stock.  
Chris Rhodes/Bayside Custom Gunworks did the stock work, bedding, and also chopped the barrel, recrown, installed single-shot follower, trigger guard, and put on and timed a Harrel Tactical solid-bottomed brake.  I had an extra trigger on hand.
The barrel was dirty as expected from Remington.
Shot it for the first time last week after bore sighting on a pd mound, and went to killing dogs, and steel.  Recoil was nothing.  
I was curious to the MV, and how it would group on paper.  Chris put me on to the Hornady American Gunner 6.5 Creed ammo (140 BTHP Match), and it shoots great in every 6.5 Creed I have shot so far...and it didn't disappoint this time either.
Sunday afternoon I went over to Dan's house, and got it zeroed at 100 yards.  We were shooting a number of SP's getting zeroed, chronoing, and slipping the dials, until wind and rain shut us down.  1/4 MOA or less from looking the spotting scope.  I will take it.  Plan to confirm some drops later this week.
Muzzle velocity is 2476 fps.
A Big Thanks To Chris for putting everything together & to Jim for the stock.
This is one of the Loaner SP's for WY-SHOT!

When you are dead, you don't know you are dead.It is difficult only for others.

It is the same when you are stupid.

That is an awesome pistol you had set up Ernie. I am also intrigued by the laminated stock in your picture. The different colors in the layers of the laminate look great.
