A Premier Series Setup for Fans of the 300 PRC
The 300 PRC was developed by Hornady in an effort to provide a hard-hitting, .30-caliber platform that could shoot accurately and precisely at increased distances. Of course, that means matching the round with a platform that's capable of providing that performance, and the Bergara Premier Series Barreled Action is the perfect launching point for just such a project.
The Bergara Premier Series action is constructed around a two-lug bolt system complete with a floating bolt head that's separate from the bolt body. This ensures that the bolt head makes complete contact with the lug abutments, and a cone-shaped bolt nose ensures that the cartridge feeds seamlessly into the action. The bolt also features a spring-loaded sliding-plate extractor that's found in the front of the lower locking lug.
- Barrel length: 24 or 26 inches
- Twist rate: 1:8-inch
- Does not include trigger
- These fit stocks and chassis inletted for Remington 700 actions.
Each Bergara Premier Series bolt body is a one-piece unit machined from stainless steel that features a rear pad designed to accept threaded bolt handles. The action is compatible with all standard Remington 700 optics bases attached with 8x40 screws, as well as all Remington 700 triggers. The 300 PRC model can be had with a 416 stainless-steel barrel in a #5.5 or a Medium Palma contour. After manufacturing, the barrels undergo a proprietary honing process at the company's barrel-making facility to ensure tolerances.
