Bergara Premier Highlander 20” .308

I saw and handled one yesterday. I’m very tempted on this one. Does anyone one this forum have any experience with this model?

I have the B14 Hunter in 6.5 CM if that is close enough. The only difference I can see is a different colored stock and barrel length. The rifle is a virtual clone of a Rem 700 with the 700's shortcomings improved. Scope mounts, triggers, and stocks from a 700 will interchange. The Bergara has a better extractor.

Accuracy is good enough, but not any better than lots of other rifles. Aesthetics are great, it is a good looking rifle, but it is heavier than it needs to be. Not sure why, but it is a fair amount heavier than a comparable 700. Which I can't figure out since it is a clone of the 700. Part of it is the stock, but that can't be all of it.

I bought one of those a few months ago. I wanted a nicer rifle, and a 308. The HMR pro fills the bill. It's accuracy good but no better than my Howa 20" heavy barrel. The look and feel of the Pro are where it's value is.
