Default Help with 6.5 creed build

I need help with a build. I have a savage 10 FCP McMillan that I want to convert to 6.5 Creed. Iím looking at a criterion steel barrel. Besides the barrel and magazine what else would I need for the conversion? Do I need to change the bolt head? If so which bolt head do I need?. Also do I need a barrel with a large shank or small shank? Iím a bit confused.

Default Help with 6.5 creed build

Just swap the barrel out. It will be a small shank (if you measure it, it will be 7/8Ē in length).

6.5 Creed uses the same bolt head and magazine as .308 Win.

Action wrench and nut wrench, and Go/No-go gauges. You might want to grab a precision recoil lug and barrel nut from NSS (theyíre my go to for Savage parts - super nice people). They carry the barrel you want as well.

I recommend you go over to Savageshooters.com and do some reading.

Yes, agree with jbj. A barrel swap is all you'll need. Looking at the pictures of you rifle in your other thread it appears to be a small shank. The small shank should be 1.055" and the large shank is 1.120". There are a couple of visuals to help also. The large shank factory barrels will have a step down in the barrel contour right after the barrel nut. Large shank barrel nuts will be shorter than the small shank one. Of course, if you have a set of calipers you can measure the daimeter of the barrel threads to be sure. The link below will have a couple pictures.

You can reuse the same barrel nut and recoil lug. There are varying opinions between the factory nut and lug versus the machined precision ones (like from NSS). I haven't really noticed the difference but it doesn't hurt to add the precision stuff since you'll have it apart. The swap is pretty easy to do. Youtube has some good videos also. Critierions are nice barrels for the money. I have two, one in 6.5 creedmoor and one in 284 win. Both will shoot. NSS has really good prices too and usually have something in stock.

If the new recoil lug is bigger, make sure there's room for it in the stock.

Sometimes it can be difficult to remove a factory barrel. If you can't get it to budge, hit the barrel nut sparingly with a torch. When you see the sealant ooze out of the threads, then it's time to put pressure on the wrench.
