I have been thinking about a Bergstutzen rifle for a while. It makes for a interesting hunting rifle concept but, I cannot find any information on the internet with regards to sighting in. The Bergstutzen has two different calibers in the same barrel set.

The Krieghoff Bergstutzen has some form of wedge on the barrels that is used for regulation.

One barrel would be in 9.3x74R and the other in 7x65R or 6.5x65R.

I am a walk and stalk hunter and find this an appealing rifle for my own hunting.

The other alternative would be to just get one set of barrels in 9.3x74R and another set in 7x65R, however the cost for the second set is quite high.

Any feedback from anybody with experience regarding a Bergstutzen rifle would be appreciated, many thanks.

Hopefully this link shows how to regulate a Blaser. Otherwise search Blaser regulation on YouTube.

Cool thanks that helps.

Only problem I now have is the largest caliber for the small caliber is 6.5x65R and I would like it to be 7x65R.

May have to look at a two barrel set @ 2000 Euro more

That's a shame. I've just got a 7x65R and am pretty impressed with it. Only shot on the range so far, will take it hunting before the end of the month.

Hello, saw that you want the Jeffries brass. So you an either send a USPS money order or paypal i guess, which ever works for you is fine with me at this point. If you want to us Paypal use [redacted] friends and family and dont mention gun stuff at all or they will go bananas! LOL!

Let me know what you want to do.
Thanks,
Rob
