Why no love for the A bolt?

It sure seems like all you hear about in rifles is 700 this and Savage that. It seems like Browning makes good products. How come thier rifles don't seem to be very popular at all?

Re: Why no love for the A bolt?

I obtained a ss A-BLOT 325WSM as a bonus in '06. 23" barrel great for packing, 7-6oz. loadedw/4-14. It has taken 2 bears,2 6x7 muleys, 1 7x7, 3-6x6 bulls, and 5x5 bull, out to 550 yrds, you could say I love this gun I think of it as more a mid range gun, it is stock,less trigger job

Re: Why no love for the A bolt?

I'm a fan of my ABolt. It's a 270Win with BOSS. Everything I've put down it has been able to shoot under an inch at 100yards.

It fits me well, shoots great, and I love it. Deer hate it.

Re: Why no love for the A bolt?

I love my 300 RUM well enough it's currently getting its 3rd barrel installed. It should do pretty well beyond 2000 yds if I can ever find a place to shoot that far.

I was just shooting my light little compact factory 7-08 with a 3-9 scope the other day, it does OK too :

Re: Why no love for the A bolt?

I have 2 A-bolts. one is s/s 7mm-mag. Shoots like a laser beam. Taken lots of game with it out west and Canada.

The other is a Medallion/ boss in.280. Also shoots like a laser beam. I am almost 60 yr. old and have had many brands of rifles and I realize we all like something different, but give me an A-bolt every time.

I love em. Every Browning item I have owned over the years has been good, Especially the rifles.
