Wide Array of New Rifles Debut at SHOT Show 2018 - Here's a Roundup - Take a Look
Updated: Nov 9, 2020
Long-range precision rifles, big bore (and repeating) air rifles and creative rimfires are among the high points of the 2018 sporting rifle class. Adjustable stocks on many crossover models are a welcome change, better allowing shooters to get a solid cheek-weld with optimal eye alignment with their scopes.
Here are some rifles that caught my eye at the 2018 Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show, better known as SHOT Show, in Las Vegas. All prices are suggested by the manufacturer.
BERGARA HMR PRO
What: The HMR stands for Hunting and Match Rifle, and this new offering fits the crossover look that many manufacturers hope will appeal to long-range shooting enthusiasts who may also want to use the rifle for hunting.
What else: The stock is a Bergara HMR molded with mini-chassis that supports a fully, free-floated barrel. It has an adjustable cheek piece and length-of-pull. A five-round Accuracy International Chassis System-style, detachable magazine carries the ammo. The trigger is a TriggerTech Frictionless Release Technology system. The muzzle is threaded and protected with a knurled cap.
Weight: 9.2 to 9.7 pounds, depending on chambering and before optics.
Calibers: .22-250 Rem., .223 Rem., .308 Win., 6.5 and 6mm Creedmoor. Price: $865.
