Benelli have announced a new variant in their Lupo rifle series, the HPR. HPR stands for ‘High Precision Rifle’ and the rifle includes some interesting long distance shooting features. Boasting .75 MOA capability from 5 shots fired at 100 yards in all weather conditions, the new addition from Benelli includes a removable bag rider and adjustable cheek comb.
Available in 6.5 Creedmoor and .308 we are hoping to see additional calibers on offer once its released.
Receiver with chassis structure
The perfect combination of steel upper receiver and aluminium lower receiver guarantees maximum structural rigidity, greater weight and absolute stability at the time of shooting.
The compact and ergonomic profile makes Lupo HPR BE.S.T. one with the shooter and allows you to shoot with a composite and natural body position.
BE.S.T. Crio barrel with increased diameter and muzzle brake
It has a diameter of 22 mm and a longitudinal fluted shape, which result in faster heat dissipation. In combination with the cryogenic treatment, they guarantee ballistic precision for competition.
Exclusively designed BE.S.T. muzzle brake stabilizes the firearm at the time of shooting by dissipating the exhaust gases evenly.
The ultimate versatility
The only bolt action in the world that transforms autonomously from a professional long range shooting version to a hunting version with absolute simplicity
Removable bag rider
To rest the stock on the rest bags and ensure perfect stability. Interchangeable grips
Grip panel with vertical grip for an adequate Long Range shooting posture.
The ultimate modularity
The Lupo HPR BE.S.T. adapts to every use and build with 672 available configurations, obtained by combining: 4 drop positions, 3 deviations (neutral, right, left), 8 comb positions, 6 LOP measurements (recoil pad-trigger distance) and 1 trigger distance plate.
To vary the height of the comb up to 40 mm, with as many as 8 different positions 5 mm apart from each other and allow perfect alignment to the scope.
