Fans of incredibly flat cartridges stuffed into precision machines just got another new option. The Bergara Premier Competition rifle adds the increasingly popular 6 GT cartridge for PRS and long-range precision shooting.
The Bergara Premier Competition comprises the company’s most accurate, highest-performing production class, PRS-style rifle in inventory. This one comes match-ready: just add your optic. Now chambered in the 6 GT, it offers even more long-range potential at the highest levels of competition.
The 6 GT presents a highly accurate cartridge, forgiving to reload from a wide range of brass, bullets and powder. It delivers muzzle velocities ranging from 2,800-2,975 fps. Now Bergara’s Premier Competition comes in this offering with a 26-inch, #7 profile stainless steel competition Bergara barrel. The barrel comes stiff, stable, and resistant to heating quickly, according to Bergara. The rifle tips the scales at 12.7 pounds. The barrel comes with a clear Cerakote finish. Inside, a Bergara Premier action rides within an MBA BA Chassis.
“This cartridge takes all the great aspects from the other 6’s around it, while leaving the negatives behind,” said Dakota Russell, Bergara Brand Manager. “The 6GT is an absolute homerun when paired with our Comp rifle.”
The rifle also includes the Acra-Swiss rail and Trigger Tech Special trigger. MSRP is $2,750. For more info, visit bergarausa.com.
Additional features include the Arca-Swiss rail for easy and fast adjustments. The 3-in-1 rail has a screw hole for your common camera tripod adaptor. The Arca-Swiss rail also allows you to easily slide your gun back and forth, and if you have a Picatinny bipod, both mounting and adjusting are seamless.
