Video bergara rifle reviews


Earlier this month, Adam Scepaniak wrote a review that was published on AllOutdoors page about Bergara’s B-14 Wilderness. In the review, he mentions the specs of the rifle and talks about his personal experience shooting the B-14 Wilderness. Below are some highlights of what he had to say.

“All of the B-14 Wilderness HMR rifles are guaranteed to produce groups of 1 MOA or less at 100 yards with quality factory, match-grade ammunition. Also, Bergara stands behind their rifles. They are always willing to assist you in the rare event an issue should arise, and you need service performed.”

Field Use – Bergara B-14 Wilderness HMR 6.5 Creedmoor

“…I brought the rifle to the range to get it sighted in at 100 yards; simple and straightforward. Since I did not know how close or far I might be taking aim at a wolf, a 100 yard zero seemed reasonable for how flat-shooting the 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge is and I could calculate DOPE (Data of Previous Engagement) from there.

While shooting simple boxed ammunition from Hornady – specifically Hornady Precision Hunter 6.5 Creedmoor 143 Grain EXD-X – I was able to achieve a 0.535″ 3-shot group in the 1st 4 shots of using the rifle! Being overly confident, I hung a target at 100 yards hoping for the best (hoping my laser boresight job would be stellar and I would at least hit paper). To my surprise, my 1st shot wasn’t that far off from the bullseye. I then adjusted a bit of windage into my Vortex Diamondback Tactical 4-16x44mm FFP scope and sent 3 more rounds down range. The group speaks for itself.”

“The last Bergara I reviewed for TheFirearmBlog (TFB) I was able to achieve a group smaller than 0.20″ after pushing over 200 rounds through the rifle. So, to say that Bergara makes some lights-out shooters is an incredible understatement. These aren’t “used car money” rifles that cost $5,000 – $10,000. They cost roughly $1K which is very attainable for any prudent hunter and/or shooter.

Throughout my 6 months of using this rifle – in preparation for an attempted wolf hunt, taking it coyote hunting a few times, and simply enjoying it at the range – there are a bevy of traits to enjoy about this rifle. The Cerakote finish is matte, non-glare, and protects the barrel. The camouflaged stock blends into a multitude of environments from a snowy landscape to a blossoming, summer woods. There is adjustability in the stock to comb height as well as length-of-pull (LOP) to customize it to any shooter. Also, you have a lot of QD cup holes to quick-attach a sling as well as sling studs for bipods and even more traditional slings. You even have a muzzle brake to tame the mild recoil of the 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge, and can easily remove it to expose threads for a silencer or your own preferred flavor of muzzle device.”
