"we dont recommend the use of reloads in our barrels"................


...............that's pretty bad advice I thought

Most firearms manufacturers will not warranty their firearms if it is found that you are firing reloaded ammunition in their guns. That is extremely sound advice from a firearms manufacturer that has to carry millions of dollars of liability insurance to cover themselves against Joe Public idiots using their products.


I have never used a Bergara barreled rifle but if the barrel is indeed bad with an off center crown then CVA will take care of the problem.
However, I recommend that your father not tell them he is using reloaded ammo if you want it to get fixed under warranty.

I always thought that warranties are to fix manufacturing defects, its not insurance against damage from use or misuse...
Correct, but as soon as they find out that you shot reloaded ammo, or modified their product in any way, they have the option to wash their hands of any and all problems that you may have now or in the future. As far as they (their lawyers) are concerned you could be on your own.

I have no doubt that CVA will replace the barrel that has a bad crown, or at the very least recrown the barrel.
