Thompson Center Compass 6.5 Creedmoor – SHOT 2017
Why no 6.5?
As soon as the Thompson Center Compass was released in 2016 people started asking why there was no model in 6.5 Creedmoor. Seems like a reasonable question when you consider that the 6.5 Creedmoor was the hottest cartridge of 2016. So, it was no surprise that the big announcement from Thompson Center at SHOT Show 2017 was the addition of 6.5 Creedmoor to the whole family of TC rifles.
In this video Jeff talks about why the TC Compass won the 2016 Gear of the Year Award as the top Bolt Action Rifle of 2016 and the features of the Compass rifles… all of which carry through to the new 2017 model in 6.5 Creedmoor.
Here is the full review of the TC Compass (link).
