Re: Why no love for the A bolt?
Had an A-Bolt in 7mm Rem Mag and never could get it to group closer than 2.5" @ 100yds. Tried Factory and Hand loads, nothing worked. Checked a neighbors 7MM Rem Mag A-Bolt and his would not shoot as good as mine. Sold mine and bought a Weatherby Vanguard in 7MM Rem Mag and with the same 160 Gr Nosler BT and H 1000, it shoots 3 & 4 shot Groups -.5" groups. Anyone would have a hard time giving me an A-Bolt, but the new X-Bolt seems to have been improved. Have shot several and the accuracy has improved tremendously. Not sold on them yet.
