    6.5 creedmoor accuracy issues

    So, I converted my DPMS to 6.5 creedmoor. So far, I'm not impressed. I'm getting 1.5-2 inch groups at 100 yards. I know it's not me since I'm getting 1/2-3/4 inch groups out of my grendel. Also, the 308 barrel wasn't that impressive either.

    Here's what I have...
    DPMS SASS with Criterion 18 inch barrel.
    Geissele high speed national match trigger

    I've tried multiple bullet brands and weights, but nothing is better. Any suggestions?

    My Bergara Premier Long Range rifle shoots around .25 MOA with Hornady 140 grain ELD Match factory ammo. Barrel twist is 1:8 (26").

    What ammo are you using? What's your barrel twist? Criterion makes good barrels for sure, but it's possible that something subtle on yours is not ideal for precision (e.g. crown, chamber, etc.).

    I've tried 140 grain ELD match along with other brands and weights. 1-8 twist on my barrel as well.

    Have you checked your scope mounts? I know I've fought accuracy issues due to equipment (or my brain) failures.

    Yup. They're tight.

    What optics are you running? Have you checked the glass to make sure it tracks correctly?

    Vortex PST 6-24. It worked great on my grendel.

    Slight update. If things continue to go the way it's going - Criterion will be my first choice on all builds.

    That sounds like some good news.
