Bergara HMR W/ Bushnell ERS...some info.
I know a lot of dudes and ladies are looking at this rifle and I would like to share some data. The first time i had this rifle out, I was shooting 129gt hornady whitetails for breaking in the barrel and some random ass hand loads. It shot everything well. So now Im about 100 rounds into the rifle, and i went out on this cold North Dakota day to do load and bullet seating development, of course I forgot my chrono. My load is 40.3gr of H4350 with 147ELD’s and my velocity should be around 2600. I’m not sure what my SD’s are yet because like i said....I forgot my damn chrono. In short, between this and a Tikka CTR I would go this way, slthough the Tilka has a better trigger. I have owned both. the bolt is smoother on this rifle. Plus you can run AICS mags. Go for it, I think you will like it.
The box test was done with a 3/4” low zero because im an idiot. Anyways, theres some data, do with it what you will.
