Bought the 300 Winmag HMR and haven't been disappointed. The trigger break is crisp and smooth. Noise is a consideration, especially with the Bergara muzzle break I put on, but more so for people off to the side when shooting. Recoil is manageable. Scope used: Vortex Viper PST 6x24x50 FFP. It is a little heavy (especially the 300 with its 26" barrel) to carry hunting, but I think the weight is a good trade off for such a tack driver.
I got this rifle in August, and if there is one thing I can say about it is this: the B14 HMR in 6.5mm Creedmoor is the nicest rifle I have ever shot. It shoots lights out, and is comfortable to shoot. Right out of the box with 140g Hornady American Gunner ammo produced a sub 1/4" group at 100 yards, and it fails to disappoint. Be warned though, putting on and taking off a muzzle brake changes the point of impact by 12-15 inches, but it is consistent. I would recommend getting a lighter weight scope, like a Leupold, if you plan on using it for hunting. My setup is 13 pounds and carting it through the woods can be exhausting. Once you get used to it though, it isn't too bad. A sling is a must. It is a great gun, and I believe it is well worth the price.
Everyone talks about a rifle that is a tack driver. I've never owned one no matter how hard I tried to convince myself. This, with the optics I got for it (Vortex Viper 5x25x55 FFP), is a tack driver. You want to hit a 6 inch plate at 750 yards? Done. How about a pumpkin at 1,050 yards three times. Done. Absolutely amazing. Only hunting I've done with it was for a Mountain Goat last September. The goat was laying down and never got up. Hornady ELDX gets the credit too, as does the fact we were able to get within 99 yards. Two items for consideration. It is heavy - and think of that hauling it on a goat hunt! Secondly, I recently put a brake on it (no suppressor) and it is uncomfortably LOUD. Probably the brakes fault, eh? I'm going to take a tack to the range and drive it with this rifle!
Very happy with this rifle. First bought one in 6.5 Creedmore and was very impressed. 3 shot ragged holes with factory ammo. Then got the Scheels edition in 22-250 and it is a very good shooting firearm. Bergara is a great rifle, the stock trigger is better than any other in its category IMO.
