Carbon or steel barrel? Keep us posted I have had it and done as well with my 1022 and am interested in your report.
Here 'tisJust picked the rifle up on Wednesday and put it in a Boyds At-One stock. Scoped it and have a Bipod on her. Still waiting on a different bipod that I have on order. Weather turned cold and rainy so probably no shooting her this weekend but can't wait. Post a picture of yours tbates66
"...shooting <.5" every time. "....... Assuming 50 yds?I have a BXR with carbon barrel. My goal was to have a suppressed semi-auto for squirrels. I had a 10/22 some years ago; a heavy barreled model. Nice enough gun and I killed some squirrels with it, but never loved it. Sold it to a friend who loved 10/22s. For me the BXR is considerably better than the 10/22. Out of the box, the BXR barrel, trigger, and stock are all better than the 10/22. Had one problem with it; inconsistent loading. Sent it back in and it was repaired and shipped back quickly. Never a problem since. Cycles everything I put thru it.
Finally got my suppressor and found the right ammo, CCi SubSonic. Just this week I got to try out the suppressor and the CCI SubSonic. Very quiet and shooting <.5" every time. Great rifle now. Can't wait to try it out on squirrels with the suppressor. Shot it last year without the suppressor and killed a bunch of squirrels with SK Standard Plus. The other thing...the carbon model is very light; a real plus if you carry it in the woods for a few hours. The shorter stature of the rifle makes it a handy woods rifle. Overall I think it is excellent.
Just put a different rail on the gun. Should be cheaper than new rings. Interesting that they put that 30moa rail on the BMR and BXR but leave the B-14r with no rail.Thanks for the pictures guys and all the comments so far. I did get mine out today. Only fired 10 rounds through her. One thing I do not care for is the 30 MOA scope rail. My personal range with all my plates and paper punching holder is 25 yards. Need to have Bull Dozer work done one of these days to make a 100 yard range. At my 25 yard range with a 30mm scope tube I can not get my scope on target. I ordered Burris XTrR Signature scope rings for it today. That way I can take the 30 MOA out of the scope. So hopefully I will get the rings this coming week and next week get it sighted in.
One thing I can say is that while trying to sight it in my last three shots with CCI SV were in the same hole after. The last three shots were the only ones out of the 10 rounds that were aimed in the same spot. So encouraging for sure. Can’t wait to get the rings and new bipod this coming week. Then when all set I will take some pictures.
Well the B14R is on the Remington SA receiver design so all rails that will fit the Remington sa 700 will fit the Bergara.Just put a different rail on the gun. Should be cheaper than new rings. Interesting that they put that 30moa rail on the BMR and BXR but leave the B-14r with no rail.
Makes sense I wasn't considering the fact that the bxr and BMR would have proprietary rails.I am actually glad that the B14R did not come with the rail. I bought a rail that had 0 MOA which is what I needed. My BXR I had to buy adjustable scope rings to adjust the 30 MOA out of the rail, that coast me another $100 bill
