    sirking , I have 2 eclipse's , One in 300 win mag an another in 300 wsm, I wont give either one up even though there pretty much the same . Those guns are just a pleasure to shoot . The wsm shoots 180 noslers all they way to 1000 yards at milk jugs with no problem and I have only shot the 300win mag at 500 so far and it printed a 3 inch group on steel with 190smk's. Once you find the sweet spot with the boss system your set. Get you gunsmith to adjust your trigger to your likeing , only takes 2 minutes to adjust it [adjustable trigger in it]. I lightened mine to just about a pound. Then try not to burn up the barrel while you haveing so much fun shooting it. I really like the thumbhole stock , It gives me a better grip on the bench. They are a little heavy but I dont walk too much with either. There just a good looking gun too. Good luck in your decision and dont be afraid of getting one , Brownings web site has listings for the sweet spots on the boss system that will give you an Idea of were to set it .
