I was able to spend the first Saturday in October, hunting for antelope. I didnít find any bucks I was looking for, so I took this doe in the afternoon.
Loving my BCG Dominator in 25 Creedmoor! 41.5 grains H-4350, Fed 210M primers, using the 110 ABís for a muzzle velocity of 2726 fps.
It was a quartering shot at 227 yards, and you can see the impact point in the picture.
This customized 14" Dominator shoots so good. I am so pleased with the speed and accuracy of this Dominator.
This platform is quite a bit harder to shoot accurately compared to a XP-100, but every since Bob Milek wrote about these babies back in the 80's, I have always wanted one.
Here is some steel shooting I did before the season, to reconfirm my drops. I had put the new Weaver pistol scope on it.
At 300 yards, I shot one time-You can see the wind slightly moving the steel plate: https://youtu.be/d3zrtvKhxdI
500 yards-I only shot two times. Three shots for reconfirming my drops-I was happy: https://youtu.be/J7LHdOVNYWY

This is a better picture of what my Dominator looks like.
The one on my left is a 6.5 Creed Dominator.

The 6.5 Creed Dominator shoots really good as well, and I have take mule deer and antelope with it.

Nice shooting! Huge congrats!


"A quiet hit in the right place is better than a loud miss in the wrong place followed by 10 more shots on the run"

I was a handgun hunter, when handgun wasn't cool.....

Very nice! Those dominators are cool!


It takes 43 muscles to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger squeeze.

I can see right now that I canít even carry your water. Thatís great shooting, even for a specialty pistol.

They have been a grail gun for me, when I first saw Bob Milek writing about them.

We all put our pants on the same way.
If you had the opportunity, I am pretty sure you can accomplish the same things.
The specialty pistol has to be capable, with an optic that can get you there, and there are always those fundamentals that have to be squared away.
With that being said, it is very doable.
