Premier Series Production Rifles Available From Bergara USA

posted on April 6, 2015

Bergara USA has introduced a series of new production rifles for sport shooters and hunters with the announcement of the Premier Series BPR-16 Classic and BPR-16 Stalker bolt-action rifles. The new models combine the custom looks and performance of the company's high-end rifles with production-level affordability.

Bergara Barrels initially entered the custom rifle market three years ago. Incorporating its proprietary rifling process, and under the direction of former Marine sniper rifle builder, Dan Hanus, Bergara's custom rifles are respected by big game hunters, law enforcement and long-range shooting enthusiasts.

Premier Series BPR-16 rifles are built on your choice of hand-laid fiberglass or Grade 5 highly-figured walnut stocks, both featuring an aluminum bedding block, providing beneficial strength without adding unnecessary weight to the rifle. The barrels and actions receive a Cerakote finish, eliminating the glare of the stainless steel and providing extra protection against the elements. A Timney trigger rounds out this rifle's line-up of components.

Review: Winchester 400 Legend

Winchester’s new 400 Legend is a streamlined, mid-sized straight-wall cartridge intended to fill the gap between its wildly popular 350 Legend and the notorious 450 Bushmaster. It is—in our opinion—a masterstroke of genius.
