GAP Grind Kicks Off Today in Tennessee

GAP Grind Giddings 2015 G.A. Precision

The prestigious GAP Grind tactical match runs this weekend, 16-18 October, at the K&M Shooting Complex in Finger, Tennessee. The 2014 GAP Grind drew a huge turn-out, and this year’s Grind promises to top that — with more competitors and even tougher challenges. Held in association with the Precision Rifle Series (PRS), this year’s Grind features a Pro/Am format with professional and amateur competitors aiming for individual and team honors.

Lots of Action, with 20+ Stages
The GAP Grind is a notoriously challenging, “high tempo” match with minimal down time between stages. Over the course of 20+ stages, competitors will fire 200+ shots at a variety of steel, paper, moving, and reactive targets out to 1,200 yards. Target vary in size/difficulty based on the shooter’s position, distance, and time allotted. Most stages include “stressors” — i.e. time limits or required movement(s).

Hot-Looking Tactical Rig in J. Allen Enterprises Modular Stock

Here’s some eye candy for the tactical guys out there. George Gardner of G.A. Precision sent us some images of a cool tactical rifle. GAP fitted a Bartlein barrel to a Stiller TAC 30 action. The barreled action was placed in a J. Allen Enterprises JAE-700 modular stock by Performance Arms of Witchita, Kansas. On top is a U.S. Optics SN-3 scope in Badger rings, with an Atlas Bipod up front. Very nice rig, and the JAE-700 has some nice options installed, including an adjustable palm rest and rear mono-pod.

6MM Creedmoor Brass Now Available at Good Prices

You’ve probably heard of the 6.5 Creedmoor, an excellent round for High Power and tactical applications. Well there’s a 6mm (.243) version of this cartridge — the 6mm Creedmoor. It has the same external dimensions (other than neck diameter) as the 6.5 version, but it lets you shoot the High-BC 6mm bullets at higher velocities. With a long barrel, you can push 105gr bullets an honest 3070-3100 fps with this cartridge. The 6mm Creedmoor has a large primer pocket and large flash hole (unlike Lapua’s 6.5×47 which has a small primer pocket, and small flash hole — like the 6mmBR).

If you’re interested in the 6mm Creedmoor, Hornady-brand brass is available right now at reasonable prices. Yesterday, GA Precision received 110,000 pieces of 6mm Creedmoor brass. Prices are:

$65.00 for 100 pieces
$325.00 for 500 pieces
$620.00 for 1000 pieces

That works out to sixty-two cents per unit if you buy 1000 cases. CLICK HERE to Order.

We have not tested the 6mm Creedmoor cartridge yet, but we know some shooters have had good luck with it. In design, the 6mm Creedmoor is quite similar to the 6XC, which is a proven High Power cartridge that has won many championships. If you want a mid-size 6mm cartridge, with brass that doesn’t cost $1.00 per case, the 6mm Creedmoor may be an option to consider. GA Precision says this about the cartridge: “The 6mm Creedmoor is an ideal cartridge for large-platform, semi-auto rifle for shooters who wish to utilize the long, high-BC modern 6mm projectiles. Compared to the .243 Winchester, the 6mm Creedmoor case is just under .130 of an inch shorter, perfect for the confines of a short-OAL AR-style magazine. This is an ideal cartridge for competitive shooters — charges easily reach 3050-3100 FPS while coming closer to the 100% volume capacity for powder charge, often resulting in lower standard deviations recorded.”
