Re: Browning X bolt or Win 70 in 7RM

Thank you all guys for your comments, which are really appreciated.

I guess he experienced some bad luck & quality issues using that 700, and he will sell it soon

He just wants a high quality rifle which wont break easily so that he never needs a smith.

BTW, can someone tell if japanese miroku-made browning barrels really differ from those "manufactured to the same army standards" in SC along with M4s? (quoting winchester site)

    Mine has the Jap made barrel on it w/ the BOSS, and it's a tack-driver. It has the 9.5" twist, and loves the 160's and 168's. i haven't tried any 180's yet....But it won't be long before I try some. Might go load some up now, before I go to the range, just to try them out.

    With any factory production rifle you stand a chance of having issues... some more than others as your friend has found out.

    If you take a good look at the guts and the histories of the M70 vs the Browning you will see the M70 is a better choice.
