A Bergara Premier Series Action Chambered for the .223 Rem.
Compared to the 5.56 NATO, the .223 Rem. is often loaded to tighter tolerances than its bulk cousin, allowing shooters to get the most accuracy and precision possible out of this .22-caliber, high-velocity round. This makes the .223 Rem. one of the most-popular precision rounds for medium-range target shooting, thanks to its affordable price. To get the most out of this round, Bergara offers its Remington 700 Premier Series barreled action in .223 Rem., complete with a #5.5 barrel machined from 416 stainless steel and honed at the company's barrel-making facility in Spain.
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.
