anyone else please feel free to chime in if you know, thanks.
So far I have had 3 Browning A-Bolts and I like them...Light to carry, thumb safety, comfortable tupperware stock and good shooters too. I still have the 7mm. It has become my go-to gun for everything from distant 'yotes to elk.
A-Bolt has the same problem as Remmy rifles...short magazines. VLD bullet loads need to be hand fed, or you can have your magazines extended like I did.
The skinny barrels get hot quickly, but still group well. It's just that heat kills accuracy in the long run, so I let the barrel cool every 3 shots.
hope this helps
