(5 out of 5) Great for the money
by from Aliquippa, PA on

Bought this rifle, put on a EGW rail, a 2x10x42 Sig Whiskey5 scope, warne medium qd rings, sighted in. I was shooting 1.5 groups off a small sandbag at 200 yards. I am thinking I could tighten them up with a lead sled. I was using Federal Non Typical 140 grain ammo. I tried the Hornady 129 grain Interlock and had 2 inch groups at 100 yards. My rifle didn't like it. Ran out of ammo before I tried 300 yard range. Would like to shoot it at 300 when it warms up again. Have not received the rebate yet, and it is kind of a pita. So customer satisfaction is still not rated.

(5 out of 5) Great Price Great Caliber Great Accuracy
by from Kuttawa, KY on

Wanted the 6.5 Creedmoor for low recoil and it had a reputation for accuracy. This rifle does it all. Not all ammo will shoot tight groups, but Hornady shot fantastic and I went with Hornady Brass and Bullets to make my own that shoot extremely tight. I did try some Winchester Ammo that was not good, but the ammo isn't the rifle. With good ammunition this rifle will shoot as good as any 6.5 Creedmoor on the market. I also own a standard Axis with a standard barrel. It shoots good too. I did do a trigger job on that one because the factory trigger is a bit heavy. But it shoots good too. Both Savages I have shoot much better than some Remingtons and Rugers that I own. And they cost me quite a bundle more. Savage gives you the most bang for the buck.

(5 out of 5) Not sure at first
by from Duncannon, PA on

For $349 I was not sure what to expect! Well I am happy after trying it out, I have the 6.5 Axis II and it is a shooter. Different weight bullet did change the accuracy but were consistent. This gun cut paper right out of the box. Holes were touching for same weight bullet. Pick a bullet you want to hunt with and stick to it, you will be happy.

(5 out of 5) Great Rifle
by from Landusky, MT on

I've had my Kryptek Highlander 6.5 Creedmoor since last October. I have three other 6.5 Creedmoor rifles: Savage FCP, Ruger American Predator, and Thompson Center Compass. The Axis II shoots better than all of them. The FCP and Ruger American both shoot .5 MOA regularly. I can't get the creep out of the Compass trigger, and therefore it wont do better than 1.25 or so. The Axis II heavy barrel highlander shoots five shot groups less than .5 inch at 220 yards. That's better than .25 MOA. Outstanding rifle.

(5 out of 5) Beautiful Gun & Great Value
by from Pearland, Texas on

Been looking for a 6.5 ever since a buddy of mine purchased one last year. He paid well over 5k for his after he had the Nightforce scope put on it. I'm not rich and can't afford that. so I began looking for one. Came across the Highlander and purchased it mainly for the heavy barrel and the price. Could not be happier with the performance of the rifle. I used it last year hunting hogs and a few deer. No complaints. Everything I shot fell immediately and didn't suffer one bit. Mine came with a scope mounted already and I used it last year. Wasn't too happy with the scope that came with the rifle. I plan on purchasing a Nightforce as soon as I find the right one for me; one I can afford. The hogs where we hunt are night owls, and come out just before daybreak and right after sunset, and the scope doesn't have a good view once it starts to get dark. Anyway, IMO it's a great gun and a great price. Thanks guys great shipping and very satisfied with the rifle.
