A Remington 700-Platform Barreled Action for Fans of the .280 Ackley Improved
One of the most-popular wildcat rounds ever developed by P.O. Ackley was the .280 Ackley Improved, perfected through a multi-step process that saw work first with the .280 Remington and then the .280 RCBS. This blazing-fast round is the perfect candidate for a semi-custom build, and the barreled actions available in the Bergara Premier Series now include this classic wildcat cartridge.
The Bergara Premier Series action is constructed around a two-lug bolt system complete with a floating bolt head that's separate from the bolt body. This ensures that the bolt head makes complete contact with the lug abutments, and a cone-shaped bolt nose ensures that the cartridge feeds seamlessly into the action. The bolt also features a spring-loaded sliding-plate extractor that's found in the front of the lower locking lug.
- Barrel length: 24 inches
- Twist rate: 1:9-inch
- Does not include trigger
- These fit stocks and chassis inletted for Remington 700 actions.
Each Bergara Premier Series bolt body is a one-piece unit machined from stainless steel that features a rear pad designed to accept threaded bolt handles. The action is compatible with all standard Remington 700 optics bases attached with 8x40 screws, as well as all Remington 700 triggers. This barreled action features a 416 stainless-steel barrel complete with a #5 contour.
