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.
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 8×40 screws, as well as all Remington 700 triggers. Each barrel receives a proprietary honing at the company’s facility in Spain to ensure quality.
Modular Driven Technologies (MDT), a Canadian manufacturer of chassis systems for precision shooting, has acquired the designs, tooling and patents of the precision rifle chassis system made by US-based manufacturer J Allen Enterprises.

The Victrix Scorpio Mille rifle is uniquely crafted by Victrix armaments with Military and Law Enforcement in mind. The Scorpio is part of the Minerva Series and ensures the highest degree of accuracy and repeatability. When it comes to long range precision shooting, magnum calibers like the .300 Winchester Magnum, .300 Norma Magnum, or .338 Lapua Magnum are a natural choice, that’s why the Scorpio has chamberings for all three. The cleverly designed, fully modular rifle chassis (FMRC) allows you to customize your rifle for a variety of applications. The chassis is also made of aluminum alloy and hard anodized to prevent scratching and abrasion. The Scorpio is a rifle that celebrates precision and attention to detail.
It would appear that Remington refuses to let the XM2010 Sniper Rifle platform die. The XM2010 was originally renamed M2010 and now it’s once again revamped but this time with a new .308 Winchester specific designation. The new model designation is the “700 ESR-1 Enhanced Sniper Rifle”.
Magpul has followed up their Pro 700 Chassis Remington 700 Short Action Chassis with the new Pro 700L series. The Pro 700L is the long action version of the chassis for popular calibers such as .300 Winchester Magnum, 30-06 Springfield, 7mm Remington Magnum etc. The chassis are feature rich and available in 3 colors. They are priced between $900-$1000 which is higher than I would expect given how competitive the field is. I plan on getting one and seeing how it compares to my MDT’s.

Today we are on the precipice of great changes to the bolt action rifle.. Almost weekly some rifle chassis manufacturer or traditional firearm manufacturer announces a new rifle chassis system or a complete rifle built upon a chassis. The chassis eliminates the wood stock formerly used in bolt action rifles. The chassis in many ways are making bolt action rifles more AR-15 or AR-10 like. In fact many rifle chassis utilize AR stocks, pistol grips, scope mounts and any other picatinney rail mounted hardware you can imagine.
The changes do not end theres. Taking a play from Savage some clever folks are adapting Savage drop-in barrels to Remington 700 receivers. This method is called “Remage”. There are currently 3rd party Remington 700 action clones designed for Savage barrels. Not to be beaten at it’s own game several of Remington sniper rifles such as the PSR, MSR and CSR feature quick change barrels that look similar to that of an AR-15. It’s a matter of time before a modular quick change barrel system like that makes it to consumer rifles. We are seeing bolts that feature the best locking methods of all firearms combined in to bolts. These new rifle chassis are also in some cases allowing users to choose the type of magazine whether AR-15, AR 308 or AICS.
The future is also here with ammunition. Despite an emotional debate of purists in love with the .308 Winchester and it’s long proven history 6.5 Creedmoor is poised to be the long range accuracy cartridge king. If the military adopts 6.5 Creedmoor and brings the ammo cost down that will be a game changing moment for shooters and snipers alike.
The purpose of this site is to keep up with these changes for a future, current and historical perspective.
