Once you have it worked out that Browning should shoot very well. I had a BAR in .338WM that was very accurate after this mod. Pity my Government made me hand it in to be destroyed, it was my favorite rifle.
They have a history of shooting ether very good or very bad. They are good rifles and a
pleasure to shoot when they shoot. but when they don't they are a pain and there is not
much you can do to fix them.
