There does not seem to be a lot of following for browning rifles. I however have loved every one I have ever owned. Can't tell you anything about the long range but I can tell you I have a m-1000 eclipse in 270wsm that us the most accurate rifle I have ever shot. I have loads with 130 gr tsx, 140gr SST, 130gr Nosler BT, and 140 hornady btsp, that all shoot less than 1/2 moa out to 500 on a calm day.

I have had 2 Browning A-Bolt II Composite Stalker 7Mags w/ BOSS systems.....First got stolen, replaced it with another one. They are excellent rifles. Never be scared to buy a Browning firearm. They are tack-drivers and the actions are smooth & strong.

Re: anyone know about the browning a bolt 2 long range hunter?

I'm looking at another Eclipse M-1000, I read the trigger is adjustable. The 7swm I had was unbelievably accurate right out of the box and such high quality workmanship. I really like the 60* bolt throw. I wish all rifles were like that. They are keepers unless you gotta have a rem 700. The advantage of a rem 700 is the longer term convertibility with after market parts. Pretty remarkable what you can do with one. I don't think initial quality is even in the same ballpark. You'd have to go Sako to be close with what Browning gives you for a bit less, buy a Browning Eclipse or hunter Eclipse.

A good smith, that's worth his salt, can trick a Browning...Any smith can blueprint a 700, b/c they are so widely used and so commonly customized. I am a huge 700 fan, but I am also a Browning A-Bolt II and Weatherby Mark-V fan.

Tricked out, rebarreled, accurized, and blueprinted A-Bolt II's are nasty guns! Christensen Arms lets you choose between 700, A-Bolt II, and Mod 70 actions for their custom ordered guns. That should tell you something.

Just thought I would share what you might be able to look forward to.


This was shot from my m-1000 eclipse at 100yards with 130gr tsx. At 3500fps. With 75gr of magpro.

And it is absolutely devastating on deer.

Awesome shooting. My M-1000 7wsm was so accurate and stable to shoot, I was shocked. I hadn't even turned on the BOSS yet. Glad to see some people respect the M-1000 line. I really think they have that gun down. Good smithing.
