New 6.5 Creedmoor AR Upper

I took a fresh built 6.5 Creedmoor upper out today for initial testing. It has an AR Performance barrel and JP Enterprises free float tube. I haven't put on a flash hider or muzzel brake yet. It has a Superlative Arms adjustable gas block. Also a Vortex 4 x 12 scope. I was shooting SIG 140 grain Match. It took three shots to zero the scope, then a four round group. I had a 3 hole, 1/4 inch group with a called flyer for the fourth round. First few shots were ejecting about 2 o'clock, one adjustment of the Superlative block and they were popping out at 3 o'clock, traveling about 5 feet, and recoil was slightly reduced. I used my 308 lower for testing, but am building a dedicated lower for this one. I'm not a big fan of large frame AR's, too heavy, and this will be my last one. But this might be the most accurate rifle I have judged by group size. Guns are fun.
