    Bergara B14 HMR

    Thinking about picking one up in 6.5. Anyone have one? Thoughts? Optic recommendations?

    I shoot 3/4MOA from prone with mine on a bad day. Vortex Viper 6-24 gets a little cloudy at higher magnification, but does well up to around 18x-ish.

    I'm running the same set up and the rifle is 1/2 MOA most days with some 3/4" mixed in there from me Most accurate gun I've ever used out of the box with factory ammo.

    Highly recommend getting one, I'll will be buying the B14 hunter at some point in 7mm rem mag.

    I see lot of shooting schools are having issues running high volumes of rounds through them and actually breaking actions over the course of a weekend.

    If you plan on using it for a PRS match don't load the magazine into a barracade because you'll be screwed.

    The rifles are without a doubt consistant, they all are shooters.

    As far as glass, the Burris XTRII line up has been a killer precision rifle optic for the price. The SIG Tango 4 is worth a look as well.

    Range trip yessterday, 10mph sustained winds with 20-30 mph gust. Bergara HMR 6.5 creedmoor, hornady 129gr SST superformance.


    I replied earlier to this thread. I highly suggest the Bergara HMR. The rifle out shoots my skill for sure with factory ammo.

    Once we figured out our proper wind hold we had first round hits on everything. My buddy was hitting at 700 and he's never shoot past 100 yds before.

    The wind was blowing so hard that it was moving my reticle while in the prone, no doubt I could shrink those groups on a nice day haha all in all we had a blast!
