Bergara Looks Around the Corner

There’s a new caliber on the block, and it’s quickly taking over the rifle scene. In fact, in 2017, nearly every company that introduced a new long gun did so in 6.5 Creedmoor. And why not? It shoots flatter, has lighter recoil, cuts through the wind better, and is just flat-out more accurate than its predecessor, the venerable .308.

Customers have taken notice, and Bergara’s 6.5 Creedmoor rifles are so popular that it is selling them at a 10 to 1 ratio over its other calibers.

Not content to rest on its laurels, Bergara is constantly trying to stay ahead of the curve. Although the 6.5 Creedmoor has achieved widespread acceptance among most rifle makers, there’s a new descendant of the round that’s making waves in the Precision Rifle Series community: the 6mm Creedmoor. Why? Because, the 6mm is even faster than the 6.5, shoots even flatter, and has less recoil. As a result, Bergara is now offering its LRP, LRP Elite, Premier Long Range, and Custom Series rifles in 6mm Creedmoor.

"At Bergara, we're not afraid to take risks, and it shows in our rifles," says Ben Fleming, Bergara's vice president of sales and marketing. "On top of that, we're always looking around the corner to see what's next. We're nowhere close to done yet." (
