    This look interesting:

    Bergara B 14 HMR
    Although it's about $400 more then the Weatherby Vanguard, it's in the more doable range for me. I can't say I know much about Bergara, but a couple of articles go on to say they are known for their high quality barrels. Does anyone here have much experience with Bergara? And if so what's your take on them?

    Good looking rifle. Almost bought one early this year. Seems what I remember is that the action is smooth and barrel is accurate. Lots of good info if you poke around the web and Youtube.

    It's been pretty positive reviews that I've read so far, I just haven't seen them around here that I can remember. I'll certainly have to look closer at the stores.

    I have been doing a lot of research on the Bergara B14 HMR and the more I research it, the more I'm liking this rifle. Now there's not as much information on the 22-250 as there is on the 308 or 6.5 creedmore, but it is still relevant to the rifle design itself.

    Bergara's main claim to fame is their barrels. Although not a bull barrel, they do have a much steeper taper then most, making it an in between regular hunting barrel and a match bull barrel, hence the HMR, which stands for hunting and match rifle. Their way of making the bore is quite interesting and probably why most of their rifles are in the higher end scale.

    The Bolt is the Remington 700 style bolt, but with a Sako style extractor. All the reviews I've read and seen rave at the smoothness of the bolt. Also, talking about Remington, it takes the same rings and bases, so looking for various styles won't be a problem.

    The trigger, although single stage, is said to be crisp and clean at right around 3 pounds.

    The stock is their own design and the reviews have been all positive so far. More rigid then other rifles in their price range adding better stability to the free floated barrel.

    Like the weatherby, the Begara also has a sub MOA guaranty.

    I need to at least find someplace selling a variant of these to get my own assessment of the feel, but overall, so far, this has risen to the top of my choices

    My uncle just picked one up in 6.5 creed. It's nice than typical mass production guns. It shot pretty good too it seemed when I sighted it in.

    It’s a awesome caliber! It shoots very flat. It’s for sure a lights out caliber.
