Had a rare opportunity to get to the range this evening. I brought the DT with the 6 creed & 22 Creed barrels. Both barrels now have 40 rounds down the pipe and I am impressed with both. Thank You Primal Rights and Travis at TS Customs. Also brought 300wsm.
22 creed 30 inch 7 twist barrel.
39.6gr H4350 and 95smk at .020 off lands. Alpha 22 creed brass. 1 low clean barrel cold bore next 4 nice cluster. 39.6 is the limit as 39.8 blew a primer.
6 creed 40.8 H4350, Barts 105 infinity bullets .020 off lands, fed 205 primer, Alpha brass. 1st shot clean cold bore low next 4 nice group.
Confirmed the 300wsm load with 185 bergers, and 168 smk.
I am liking these new DT barrels.
Thank You Primal Rights and Travis at TS Customs.
Happy to be of service!

Looking good @tpk936, glad to help!
Finally had a chance to do some shooting and I took advantage of the time. It was a beautiful day.
Did some 6 br shooting. I really like this cartridge.
shot a bunch of 22. this is just 2 of the targets.
Worked on dialing in the 22 creed with 95smk bullets. The 36.6gr H4350 seated .015 looks good will load some more to confirm and chrono.
Then swap the 6 creed barrel in and did some work. The 107smk at 40.4 to 40.6 look good will load some 40.4 and 40.5 to see. The 105 Barts needs some more work. 40.4 is close but need to play with seating depth. I sprayed the high one.
I am liking the DT more and more. I must say those new barrels are awesome. Thanks Greg and Travis
Some time range trips are fun and sometimes filled with BS from other shooters. Today had a guy next to me with his 4 buddies borrowing tools and every thing else to get his 6.5x284 zeroed. Piece of junk scope took him an hour to hit paper at 50yrds. I offered to help but he was a genius. When he told me he was going to shoot 2000 yards and he knew everything I just took my tools back and said good luck with that.
300wsm Bench gun. Just fouling the barrel after cleaning.
Some 6 creed with 107smk and 105Barts. This DT barrel is liking the 107. Some 22 creed with 82gr bergers and 95gr smk.
Maybe I should stick to the 107smk and leave the 105 in the box. The 105 are finicky with seating depth.
8 twist 6br with 107smk this was 15 shots at 200yrds. Shot 2 strings and the wind did lie down on second string. I always seem to let 1 slip away.

For some reason I can’t see any of your pictures on any of your post.
Working fine for me.

I can see all your pictures as well as everyone else’s, but for some reason none of his show up
It has been a while since I shot. Was able to do some today. Took the DT with 22 creed, 6 creed, and 6.5 creed barrels. The 40X 22lr and a 300 wsm.
Did attempt a dot drill with the 40X. Shot 150 22lr rounds.
I shot some 22 creed using necked down Peterson 6 creed srp brass. I did not get any pressure signs like I have been with the Alpha 22 creed brass. 36.8gr H4350 with 95smk made a nice whole. The 90grsmk did pretty good with 37gr H4350. I have Lapua 6 creed srp brass on order. The 6 creed did nicely with Peterson brass also.
I had some 185 bergers laying around so I loaded up what I had left and shot them at 200 yards. I just held my aim point and did not correct till the last shot.
I put the 6.5 barrel in after the 22 creed and took 10 shots at 200 yards. It took me 3 to get adjusted but the last 7 worked nicely.
All in all a good day at the range. This was the first time I took all 3 DT barrels to the range. It is very impressive how you can switch the barrels and they all shoot. I could have saved thousands if I would have jumped on this platform earlier.
It has been quite some time since I have been to the range. I definitely had some rust.
Shot 150 rounds of 22 from my 40X. Cheap geco ammo at 100 yards.
This is some 6br and 6.5 creed at 100 yards.
This was my 6.5 creed hunting rifle, the 22 creed and the 6 creeed DT barrels. I am trying to finish up load development. I am closing in on both. Hopefully will get back to range soon.
shot the 6.5 creed at 400 hundred yards.
The weather was a challenge. light rain 47 degress and the wing blowing 9-18mph. When I showed up at range could not see 400 yard target with foggy conditions.
I need to get back out and work on my technique.
Was able to get to the range today. The weather was mid 40's wind gusting and light rain / misting.
Bottom row dots is 6br except the right dot that was 6 creed. I have been trying to get these 105 Barts infinity bullets to shoot but do not seem to be able to be consistent. I loaded some 107SMK at 41.8 gr of H4350 at .015 off lands and made a nice cluster.
The 22 creed is with 90SMK . I seem to be losing a shot. I am pretty sure it is me. I must remember class and make honest shots.
6br 14 twist using 68gr Barts ultra flat back bullets. 4 shots at 200 yards. The 9 was my point of aim. My last shot was the one left.
I will do some more loading with the 22 creed and 90smk. will do 37.1 to 37.3gr of H4350. I am getting closer.
I will also load some 6 creed with 107smk at 41.8, 41.9, 42,42.1.. I think I will find the right load.
I need to keep working with the DT and get as comfortable with the setup as I am with my MPA chassis.
@tpk936 You still remain my singular customer that can not stay in firing position while manipulating the bolt on a SRS. Whenever the question of bolt manipulation comes up, I have them do the "thumb test" we invented when you were here in class. Thus far, you're the only customer or prospective customer that can't do it. ;)
This is about the only thing that I can attribute to your ability to consistently shoot traditional rifles better than you shoot your DT. I bet their performance would be about equal if you were getting up and breaking contact with the rifle in between each and every shot.
For those that weren't there, @tpk936 has one of those "worlds strongest man" type of upper torso's. Big giant arms which don't allow for lots of flexibility. ... and if you can't stay in position properly from shot to shot through bolt manipulation, NPA is going to suffer.
@tpk936, you've made outstanding progress in the last year, and you should be quite proud of your accomplishments and continued training.
@orkan thank you sir. I will continue to work the DT. I take it with me every trip to the range. I like the platform and the ability to swap barrels with amazing accuracy. I have 3 barrels and will look to expand. I just have to keep practicing all the techniques from class and work on maintaining NPA during bolt manipulation. I will get there. Maybe I can get the opportunity to return to class in 2019.
Perfect repetition is the mother of learning.
Was able to go to the range Friday and today. Friday the weather was in the mid 60's blowing around 9-12mph but rain was coming down off and on sometimes hard. Today's weather was low 50's with the wind blowing 21 to 31 making for some tough conditions.
This is Friday target with the DT 22 creed and 6 creed. Had to go over target with marker again because rain washed off. I like the 22 creed with 37.3gr H4350 and 90gr SMK. The 6 creed did well at 41.9 of H4350 and 107SMK. At 42.1 was starting to show some pressure.
Some 40X work both days.
Some 300wsm with 168gr smk and 185 bergers at 200 yards today. The wind was very challeging. I did get into a grove with the 168 but had some poor wind timing. Patience.
Testing the 22 creed load today at 200 yards. Started a little high then put 15 shots into a pretty good groove. Last 4 shots at top of target. Was aiming for the 9. first 3 left then held over on last shot. I think I will continue to use this load in 22 creed. With the wind blowing like it was today I am happy with results.
6 shots at 200 yards with DT 6 creed today. 1st 3 a little high and to the right. the next 3 in center but vertical spread. The spread was me not maintaining good NPA. Even though I break NPA with bolt manipulation sometimes I believe I am getting better with the DT. I need to keep practicing but all in all pretty happy with results today with the conditions.
I am planning a range trip tomorrow and run the 22 creed and 6 creed out to 400 yards with the loads I have settled on. Interested to see how they perform. Did nicely at 200 yards.
I am not excited about the forecast. High of 42 with wind blowing 18-34 wnw, giving a real feel of 30...
I was all excited thinking some 6mm 95gr TMK where showing up today. I prepped brass last night so tonight could load up and take with me but low and behold they are 95gr smk bthp. my fault. I am still going to load them to see. BTW an order was placed today for some 95 TMK.
This has taken me a while to get to my question due to rambling. Has anyone used the 95gr TMK in a 6 creed, 6br etc and if so do you like the performance? also if you have any load data to share would be awesome.
Range trip complete. The weather was tough. The wind was howling 18-34 wnw with temp at 39 degrees.
I was not there a long time.
All guns had clean bores. The 300 wsm took some time to foul back in but once it did performed nicely. I was very happy with the 22 creed clean bore, Produced a nice little cluster. The 6 creed was clean bore and had to rezero after switching barrels.
The 6br with fuzion action just flat out shoots even in these conditions. Took 15 shots at 200 yards. I did not do a very good job with 300wsm until last shot hold over for wind. the 9 was point of aim.
This was 10 shots with the 6 creed at 200 yards. I was happy with this.
This made my day 8 shots at 400 yards with the 22 creed. first time out to 400 with this load. First shot was a little high. Adjusted and was timing the wind being patient all except for the miss right. The shot a little left was a wind issue, just laid down some. Based on dope it would suggest I am pushing the 90gr smk around 3150. Will need to chrono one day.
I am happy with the day overall. I will say not having to break NPA with my 6br does make a difference. I just need to to stay patient and continue to work with the DT. I am seeing improvement.
Been a while but took the DT 22 creed out today. Cold and windy but had some time.
I used new Alpha 22 creed brass, 88 ELDM bullets, H4350 powder and CCI primer.
This is 37.2gr of powder. It produced nice clusters even with new brass.
This is with 37.5 grains of powder. It shows slight signs of ejector mark on brass. May be a little to hot when temperatures come up.
The alpha brass did not like the 90gr SMK. So I will stick to Peterson srp brass and the 90SMK. I need to anneal size and load the Alpha brass to see if it improves. When this brass is new It takes some force to seat bullets.
Taking advantage of the Christmas Holiday and went to the range today. 38 degrees bright sunshine and low wind. I loaded up some some 22 creed with 88ELDM and 37.2 grains H4350 to see how it would do down range. Only problem a few other people taking advantage of a day off. I could only shoot to 200 yards.
first 5 shot had .3 mil adjustment and shot 5. Came down to .2 and shot another 6 at 200 yards. Should have quit at 5. Last shot is the lonely one right. These 88 are working nicely.
11 shots with my 6br at 200
Took me a little bit to get going today. I started on right side of target and came left. It was nice to make a couple range trips over Christmas Holiday.
Went to the range today to do a ladder test with H1000 and 95 SMK for the 22 creed.
This is 36,38,39 grains of powder.
This is 40, 40.5,41 grains of powder. 40.5 hit dead on point of aim. 42 grains had pressure very snug bolt lift. Looks like around 40.5 has promise. Thoughts?
Took 5 shots at 100 and 8 shots at 200 with 6.5 creedmoor.
Took 5 shots withh 22 creed and 88gr ELDM at 100 this was to foul barrel back in after cleaning and 8 at 200 yards first 2 low but next 6 where nice.
Please let me know any thoughts on H1000. Thanks
It has been quite some time since posted. I have been shooting but not a lot. Now that the weather is turning nicer will try to get out more. Today was 64 with winds blowing 20-48 WNW.
The 6br performed nicely at 100 yards. Did shoot a bunch of 22lr at 50 also.
Had my 6 creed barrel in my DT and was shooting a new load with 107smk. I think it is going to work.
100 yards 3
10 at 200 yards.
5 at 400 yards. 1st shot was high adjusted dial. 3 very tight 2 left struggled with mirage..This load is a keeper.
So my good buddy Bob Hart at RW Hart had Hart barrels spin up a DT barrel, there first. He chambered it in his wildcat 30 Hart cartridge which is a improved 300 weatherby mag cartridge. He was nervous and excited to see what it would do. This was a first for Hart barrels and a first for him to chamber. He loaded up the ammo at loads he uses.
3 shots 210 berger VLD at 100 yards
3 with 190 Nosler comps at 100
He was very impressed with the DT platform. These where shot on different days.
The DT platform just performs.
Another 90 down the RimX. The more I shoot it the better I like it. This gun is so much fun to shoot. It feels like a full size center- fire, and is very accurate.
I am using GECO ammo and shooting it suppressed.
I got a little to quick on some and did not maintain NPA. To much smiling.
DT 6 creed 200 yards barrel has 1170 rounds down it. I pulled 1.
DT 308 at 200 yards. This is an 8.5 twist barrel shooting 195TMK.
Hart 6.5 creed shot a couple weeks ago at 400 yards. 142SMK bullets.

@tpk936 Are you shooting Geco Rifle or Match? I looked at prices and that is very inexpensive 22 long rifle ammo and it's in stock.
@bigfoot shooting Geco rifle. It also has worked well in my 40X repeater.
It has been quite some time since posting but wanted to let all know the RimX is doing just fine. Last weekend out shooting and happened to pick off a couple flies. One on target and one on target backer.
I think this 22 keeps getting better. I am not shooting it suppressed and have not messed with the tuner as of yet. It has shot the following ammo well Geco, Wolf match target and SK match. It really liked the SK match.
Have a Happy Turkey Day.
