Re: Looking for a Browning Abolt Long Range Hunter in 300ultra

Man I really like the way the gun feels. Got the trigger job done on the rifle. It is a crisp 2lbs and have the barrel clean and ready to mount scope and break the barrel in. I have never been just a huge browning fan. I have had two abolts years ago and one shot lights out and the other wasn't a great shooter..

Very nice looking rifle! I know they made Abolt-IIs in 300 and 338RUM some time back, when the RUM was the chambering to have. I have another odd RUM, a model 70 stainless, and it can drive nails at 200yards. Anytime I see a RUM in something other then a remington, I have to smile.

I managed to get a browning A bolt LR stainless in 300 RUM. I'm not a big fan of the synthetic stalk and want a laminate one. Does anyone know where I can get one?

Boyds has laminate stocks for brownings, and Stockys probably does too. They won't be factory original but will be pretty dang good.

I don't see any for heavy barrels.

Call them to see if they have a more open channel available as they may. It looks like the apache at stocky's may be a good one if you are a righty. Another choice is to open the channel yourself or have a woodworker you trust do it if you don't trust yourself doing it; I'd call first and confirm the fore end is big enough to open up before you buy it though.

Re: Looking for a Browning Abolt Long Range Hunter in 300ultra

Yes I will call both after the holidays. Ive compared my normal sporterbarreled a bolt stocks tothe long range and there isn't enough meat to channel out for the heavy barrrel. Ive read stocky's tech pages and that makes me think their sporter stocks won't work. Calling is the smart thing to do. Thanks
