I’m in the process of building a 16” 6.5 Creedmoor on an Aero M5 set. Faxon midlength barrel. I’ll be using a Sentry 7 adjustable gas block and a aac SDN6. Plans also include a mid magnification optic in the 3-15 range.

Who has a 16” Creedmoor and how does it run?
Do you run suppressed?
How far have you shot it?

I have access to a 600 yard range and plan to hunt white tail to 200 yards and hogs to 300 yards.

I’ve read a lot of people say a 16” can’t be done right but a sub $200 barrel isn’t hard to replace if I have too many issues. I can always go longer or swap to 308.

Basically any info would be helpful as far as your experiences and what I should watch out for.

Just ordered a Leupold Mark 5 3.6-18x44 Tremor 3.

Now just need a scope mount, BCG, and gas block and I’ll be able to test it out for myself.
