Bergara Announces Addition of Carbon Barrels to Wilderness HMR Rifle

Bergara’s HMR rifles have garnered global respect as one of their most popular models, thanks to superb ergonomics and accuracy. New for 2023, they have added a carbon fiber barrel to their B-14 Wilderness HMR (Hunting / Match rifle). Enjoy the weight savings and increased accuracy needed for the most extreme environments.

The B-14 Wilderness Series® embodies pure performance with real-world feature sets like fluted bolts, specialized coatings, and stock options that can withstand the rugged and unforgiving wilderness, while blending into the elements.

The No. 6 carbon fiber barrel with 410 stainless is equipped with a threaded 5/8-24 Omni muzzle brake, in (20, 22 or 24 inches, depending on the caliber). The HMR Carbon Wilderness is loaded with features. Bergara’s B-14 action includes a spring-loaded ejector, side-mounted bolt stop, and a fluted 4140 chromoly steel one-piece-bolt body with the action finished in a Sniper Gray Cerakote® for advanced protection in harsh weather. This two-lug system with a sliding plate extractor and coned bolt nose ensures smooth feeding and extraction of the cartridge. The one-piece-bolt body accepts ACIS-sized magazines. Other features include a side-mounted bolt stop and a 90-degree bolt throw. The two-position safety is part of the trigger assembly, allowing the rifle to be unloaded while the safety is engaged. The molded stock has an adjustable cheek piece and incorporates a mini-chassis to give the rifle repeatable bedding and accuracy. The HMR Carbon Wilderness comes with a sub-moa guarantee and is chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor, 6.5 PRC, .308 Win., and .300 Win. Mag. giving it an unloaded weight of 7.5 pounds.

MSRP: Starting at $1850.
