    Great rifle
    Wife gave me this for birthday last year. I have around 300 rounds thru it so far, mostly hand loads. Shoots under MOA consistently, no problem hitting 4 inch steel disc at 320 yards. Mounted Nikon 4x12 BDC scope, perfec...t combo for punching small holes in paper and hunting more

    Smooth Shooter
    I bought this gun about 3 weeks ago. Finally got an opportunity to go to the gun range to see how well it performed. I put a Vortex 3x9x40 crossfire 11 scope on it and it compliments the rifle well. I purchased two boxes... of Remington cor lokts in 140 grain pspcl to sight in and to hunt with. After a box of the cor lokts and getting some what irritated because I couldn't get the cross hairs on the scope to move to the right. I thought I had gotten a bad scope. So I carried the rifle inside to let the range attendant take a look at it. First, scope needed to be tighten to specifications. Scope was loose. He also told me about the Hornady ammo. Hornady and. 6.5 creedmoor is a perfect match. The company claims a 3 shot 1" inch group at a 100 yards and the key word here is premium ammunition. I can honestly say they are correct. Using Hornady 143 grain precision hunter ammo ($32.99 a box) I shot 1" groups at 100 yards. Recoil is manageable, not enough to worry about when you pull the trigger which is not to heavy and breaks clean. Eject spent cartridges smooth. No hang ups or jams. Smooth shooter. Enough said. more

    Accuracy!
    I finally got to shoot my 6.5 Compass rifle this week. I got a great deal from academy, with the rebate and sale it was just under $200. My best group was .313 using the Hornady 143 eld-x round. I am very pleased and can...’t wait to shoot it again. more

  • A Sub-MOA Sub-Moa 6.5 Creedmoor for $400? Thompson/Center Compass — Full Review
    This hunting rifle Thompson Compass 6.5 Creedmoor is fed with a flush fit magazine, it's got a pretty smooth bolt it also got a adjustable trigger and the trigger pull is about 5 pounds. The stock is a polymer stock and... it's light and this rifle is actually fairly rigid. more

  • Review: Thompson/Center Compass 6.5 Creedmoor
    he Compass' single-stage curved trigger allows its firing pin to spring forward after 31/2 pounds according to our trigger pull gauge. Want it lighter? Prefer a heavier trigger for peace of mind? It's easy to remove the ...stock and adjust the trigger's pull weight. Given that most decisions on whether or not to buy a gun take place across the counter after the trigger is pulled, I think that T/C made a great choice in offering the Compass with such a great, adjustable trigger out of the box. A 60-degree bolt typically has three lugs while a 90-degree often has two large lugs. A shorter bolt lift (60 degrees) can mean that it is easier to cycle the action quicker because you are not lifting it as high, and it offers more clearance for a scope that's mounted low. The stock looks like other economy-rifle stocks in that it's black, has some molded lines for tactile grip and is made of some plastic that manufacturers often advertise as a proprietary blend of modern polymers. As with other economy rifles, it's not wood, wood laminate, kevlar, carbon fiber or fiberglass, which means that this was a big cost savings. There are two sling swivel attachment points and ribs to tell the hands where to grip. The stock is straightforward and doesn't mess with the accuracy of the rifle because it's molded with such generous proportions that it can't touch the barrel, even when hot. more

  • Field Test: Thompson Center’s Affordable 6.5 Creedmoor Compass Rifle
    The Compass is designed to provide the right features that make for good shooting performance at a budget price point. The rifle carries an MSRP of just $399, and you can find it on the shelves for less if you shop. Like... most bolt guns, the Compass is available in an array of caliber options. Some specs, such as magazine capacity, barrel length and twist rate, vary a bit according to caliber choice. For example, larger cartridge sizes have a 4+1 instead of 5+1 magazine capacity. The barrel itself on the Compass is one of the standout features for a number of reasons. The rifling pattern is called 5R. That means there are five grooves, but they aren’t “cut” with sharp edges. Instead, the rifling is more rounded in shape, so the bullets are “mushed” into the rifling rather than cut. This kinder and gentler pattern collects less copper fouling, leading to easier cleaning and longer barrel life. The 6.5mm Creedmoor barrel uses a 1:8-inch twist rate, although that varies with caliber choice. The Compass features a removable magazine that’s flush with the stock – even the release latch is inset, so nothing is in the way of your support hand. The magazine is mostly polymer and well suited for use and abuse in the field. The 6.5mm Creedmoor version holds five rounds in the magazine plus an extra in the chamber if you like. The trigger as shipped measured exactly 5 pounds according to my Timney Triggers scale. It’s a single-stage trigger with no detectable take-up stage, and the break is crisp. I liked it. The factory ships the Compass with the adjustable trigger set on the heavier side. That’s no problem because you can easily adjust it. The stock is composite and features functional grip patterning on the forend and grip. It’s aggressive enough to work well with gloves, but not abusive to bare hands. The included recoil pad was effective, although I don’t find 6.5mm Creedmoor to be hard kicking. It’s a plenty loud caliber, but pleasurable to shoot. more

  • A Sub-MOA 6.5 Creedmoor for $400? Thompson/Center Compass — Full Review
    he Compass line was built from the ground up with the idea that inexpensive doesn’t mean cheap. The Compass is loaded with features you wouldn’t expect for the price. This is flush fit, rotary magazine-fed rifle. Sta...ndard calibers hold five rounds and magnum calibers hold four rounds. The barrel is threaded from the factory and ready to accept a muzzle brake or suppressor. This shows that Thompson Center is looking ahead to the future as hunting with suppressors becomes more popular. The trigger is user adjustable if a bit more involved than some of the others on the market. It’s still not rocket science, and out of the box, it is good enough for most people. There is a nice texturing around the grip area and again on the forend. The forend also has grooves cut the length of half the stock, which both looks nice and adds some purchase for shooting in less than ideal conditions. This stock was made to be used in the field and it shows. It also features front and rear sling attachment points, but only one of each. If you use bipods in the field, make sure your choice has a sling mount on the bipod. The barrel profile is on the thinner side, which we expect for a hunting rifle. Shooting a groups with Federal Fusion ammunition, it heated up pretty quickly and this rifle is very accurate. more
