From Bergara:

Bergara USA, a division of Blackpowder Products, Inc. (BPI Outdoors), announces the expansion of their rifle making capabilities to include new production rifles for sport shooters and hunters with its Performance Series B-14 Timber and B-14 Hunter rifles.

Bergara USA now offers many of the same quality features and performance characteristics well known in their custom guns in its two Performance Series production rifles: the B-14 Timber and the B-14 Hunter. Both rifles feature the Bergara PERFORMANCE action with a coned bolt nose and breech ensuring consistently smooth feeding and a sliding plate extractor for proper alignment.

The Bergara 4140CrMo steel barrel is finished in matte blue and is available in 22-inches (Short Action) and 24-inches (Long Action). The B-14 Timber rifle is built on a classic style, oil-finished walnut stock with a checkered pistol grip and forend. The B-14 Hunter rifle is built on a rugged Sporter-style lightweight synthetic stock. Both the wood and synthetic stocks are bedded with integral pillars for stability and enhanced accuracy.

Bergara Barrels, OEM supplier to several of the world’s top rifle manufacturers, incorporates a proprietary rifling by which Bergara’s custom rifles have become widely respected by big game hunters, law enforcement and long-range shooting enthusiasts. Now, the same accuracy boasting Bergara barrels are available to American hunters and sport shooters in the Bergara Performance Series rifles at an affordable price.

    Why 6.5 Creedmore instead of 6.5×55?

    The B14 is basically a (much) better Remington M700: smoother action, better barrel, better wood, good synthetic, but still compatible with M700 after-market goodies. The price is higher, of course, but you’re primarily paying for quality, not branding. I look forward to reading range reports of this rifle.

    Why 6.5CM? I guess because, as a newer cartridge, it is rated for higher pressures than the old 6.5 Swede, and so offers higher performance as standard and more consistent hand-loading data.

      Ohh yeah I forgot you guys are stuck in the 19th century when it comes to 6.5×55 loads :/

        “You guys?”

        I’m not knocking the 6.5 Swede. It can be everything the 6.5CM is, and there are more people making ammo for it too, it’s just that the factory ammo produced has to take older rifles into account in a way that 6.5 CM does not.

        Who knows, perhaps Bergara are making this rifle for a US market that is seen as more receptive to the 6.5CM.

          “You guys” as in American weapon market. In Europe we load them for the weapons that are produced today, not 100 years ago.

    A beautiful rifle, in 30-06 too, if I were in the market for a hunting rifle it would certainly be a contender.
