Manufactured in Bergara, Spain, a region known to produce some of the finest guns in the world, Bergara has combined the best barrel manufacturing equipment with a resolute commitment to quality and value. This superior technology combined with decades of barrel making experience delivers a production barrel that performs like it was custom made.
With the most technically-advanced barrel manufacturing techniques, state-of-the-art machinery, and an unwavering commitment to quality, Bergara Barrels has become the barrel source of numerous top-tier gun manufacturers in both Europe and the United States. Now, with Bergara Rifles we are producing a full line of precision rifles, engineered and built to showcase the performance capabilities of our world-class barrels.
At Bergara we believe that a precision rifle requires not only the best components, but also an assembly process that is carried out by individuals who are the best of the best at their craft. For this reason, we brought together a team of the world’s most talented and experienced rifle builders.
It all began several years ago when we first began with a small line of custom rifles and one top-notch craftsman, the former Production Chief & Chief Instructor for the United States Marine Corps Precision Weapons Section. As Bergara rapidly grew, we then assembled a hand-picked group of his best PWS alumni, the guys who built the rifles used by US Marines both in combat and competition all over the world.
Today, these Marines still form the core of our production team, passing their knowledge and expertise on to every new employee, and thereby bringing their own real-world experience and expertise to every Bergara rifle.
In terms of units sold it is by far the most common ammunition in the world today. Common uses include hunting and shooting sports. The .22 Long Rifle is effective at short ranges and has little recoil making it ideal for training.
The .22 LR is effective to 150 yd (140 m), though practical ranges tend to be less. After 150 yd, the ballistics of the round are such that it will be difficult to compensate for the large “drop”. The relatively short effective range, low report, and light recoil have made it a favorite for use as a target-practice cartridge.
As a hunting cartridge, rimfires are mainly used to kill small game up to the size of coyotes. Although proper shot placement can kill larger animals such as deer or hog, it is not recommended because its low power may not guarantee a humane kill.
The variety of .22 LR loads are often divided into four distinct categories, based on nominal velocity:
- Subsonic, which also includes “target” or “match” loads, at nominal speeds below 1,100 feet per second (340 m/s).
- Standard-velocity: 1,120–1,135 feet per second (341–346 m/s)
- High-velocity: 1,200–1,310 feet per second (370–400 m/s)
- Hyper-velocity, or Ultra-velocity: over 1,400 feet per second (430 m/s)
The Bergara B-14R is an amazing gun that has a number of uses, whether you are hunting small game, target practicing, teaching beginners that are not used to the sound of bigger caliber ammunition and many more, this bolt action rifle is one of the best if not the best in its class.
The new B-14R has been requested by enthusiasts and beginners alike for a long time, finally it is within the reach while also being lot more affordable than bigger caliber bolt-action rifles.
