New 6.5 Creedmoor Rifle from Ballistic Advantage, Aero Precision | SHOT 2017

    Ballistic Advantage

    Ballistic Advantage and Aero Precision teamed up on a number of projects recently, and had the fruits of their labors on display at the Industry Day at the Range event just ahead of the 2017 SHOT Show. One of these projects is a short barrel 6.5 Creedmoor carbine.

    The Creedmoor rifle is a gun designed for accuracy, even though the company went in the opposite direction than one might think when it came to barrel length. The new gun has a 14.1″ barrel yet carries a 1 MOA guarantee. The barrel is made by Ballistic Advantage.

    When TFB’s own Patrick R. was shooting the gun, he was able to place rounds exactly where they need to go with regularity. One of the Ballistic Advantage reps called it their “boringly accurate” gun. While I can appreciate the humor, I’ve never found anything boring about a quality firearm, which is exactly what this rifle appeared to be.

    As shown in the photos, the rifle is equipped with a Vortex scope, Magpul Precision Adjustable stock and an Aero Precision KeyMod rail system. The upper and lower are also from Aero Precision.

    Right now, this rifle is a prototype model, and does not have a release date or suggested retail price. However, the company rep I spoke to said that interested shooters should watch the company’s website in the coming months for a potential run of these rifles. I’d say if you are interested in them, you might want to e-mail them and let them know.
