Bergara Rifles is rolling out a new bolt gun ahead of the SHOT Show. Called the B14 HMR, this new rifle is designed for precision shooting and comes with a sub MOA guarantee (with factory match ammo.) Bergara positions this new gun for “hardcore hunters, precision rifle shooters and those desiring absolute quality and accuracy.”
The gun is built on a mini chassis made of 7075 T6 aluminum and bedded in a molded synthetic stock. The gun uses the company’s B14 action of course.
Chambered in both .308 Win and 6.5 Creedmoor, the guns use AICS type magazines and ship with a single Magpul AICS PMAG to keep it fed. The .30-caliber guns have a 20″ barrel while the 6.5 Creedmoor gets a slightly longer 22″ barrel. Barrels are button rifled and made of 4140 steel. Barrels are threaded (5/8×24).
Bergara uses an adjustable trigger in these rifles. The stocks are adjustable for cheek height and length of pull. According to the company, most of the adjustments are made by hand and do not require a tool.
Unloaded, these guns weigh about 9.2 pounds. The suggested retail price is $1,150 for either caliber. The B14 HMR is completely built in Spain and imported to the United States through the company’s Lawrenceville, Georgia based operation. Bergara Rifles built rifles for a number of SWAT teams in the metro Atlanta area.
