B-14 HMR (Hunting and Match) Rifle - Bergara Rifles USA
Against custom barrels, i think its a little harder to grade them.
Honestly Id EXPECT a custom like a Shilen to shoot sub MOA or smaller pretty easily, but that also includes proper installation, which can matter as much as the barrel quality.
With something like the HMR (my dads shooting an HMR Pro), id STILL expect MOA or better, but if it didnt (or didnt without work) i wouldn't be horribly surprised.....well I guess I wouldnt be AS surprised....
Bergaras are a hit. Well respect among the Community.
@LoonWulf : How about the point of impact not wandering after shooting a number of rounds?
Minimal on my dads gun. he dosent usually cool his rifle much.
After initial correction and if its not windy he can keep his rounds on a 10" plate at 5-600yds pretty easily. Ive only shot it for groups a couple of times, and didnt notice any stringing. Ill admit I dont shoot his gun much as I have to adjust his scope, and it can be a pain getting it reset for him.
Of the other guns Ive shot, non exibited it in the limited number of rounds its taken me to sight them and shoot a group. My own B-14 wasnt stupendously accurate (1.25 or so was about average) but it never wandered.
Which models and calibers are the ones that shoot to 1200 yards?
Not really a fair comparison, the Shilen/Bartlien etc etc are going to shoot better ,assuming all else is capable.
That doesn’t mean they can’t shoot very well, and well enough for your application
