A Premium Barreled Action in the Hard-hitting 6.5 PRC
For long-range shooters looking to take advantage of the enhanced ballistics found in Hornady's groundbreaking 6.5 PRC cartridge, it's critical to build a rifle system that harnesses all the best qualities of the round. The Bergara Premier Series Barreled Action fits the bill, providing a high-quality, finely built rifle action compatible with most Remington 700-style accessories on the market.
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 or 26 inches

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. The barrels are machined from 416 stainless steel and can be had in two different profiles.
