Default Bergara B14 HMR scope base recommendation.

Howdy all.

I have a Bergara B14 HMR in 6.5 Creedmore in jail.

I am looking at scope mounts for the rifle, probably ending up with a picatinny base for the rifle. The optic will be a primary arms FFP scope with and acss reticle with a Ameican Defense Manufacturing recon mount for now. Choice of future optic and mount will be a source of another topic, but if you want to throw in an opinion, I am not opposed.

For those not in the know, the Bergara is a Remington 700 clone.

Purpose is long range shooting and perhaps a hybrid hunting rifle. I want to go to 1000 yds.

My budget is about 100 to 150 dollars.

I am primarily an AR guy, this is my first bolt rifle.

What are the top recommendations from you guys?

I am using a Nightforce 20moa steel base (A115) on my HMR. I bought mine from CS Tactical.

Another option is the Area 419 scope rail base. I probably would've gotten this one first but I'm happy with my NF

EGW makes a picatinny base for Bergara rifles for well under $100.00. Been using them for several years with no complaints.

I have a Seekins 20moa rail, doubt it really matters, any quality rail is going to work just the same.

I agree. I run Warne base and rings with my HMR. Work good and feel like quality.

I chose the MDT 20 moa pic rail because of integral recoil shoulder with elongated screw holes for positive contact with receiver ring.

Make sure it lays flat on the action before tightening it down. Also consider lapping the rings. You can get the Wheeler kit for under a hundred bucks.

Vaughn Precision has done youtubes on bedding the rail if it doesn't lay flat, and on lapping the rings too.
