26" Stainless, McGowan in #4 Douglas profile, 7 SAUM. This shoots one hole groups at 100 yds. I wasn't sure a Browning could do it but it was worth a try. Now I have a 7 lb. longer range Browning Stalker.
The short action with bottom metal weighs 2 lbs 2 oz. I was suprised too. LOL.
I also had good experience with three A-bolts, none were mine but got to shot them. All long action, shot under moa accurate up to 1000 yards so far. Lastly one of them didn't have a boss, loaded up a hand load and it did very well for our standard on the first batch! Half Moa or so, so it should get better with fireformed brass. I think its luck cause some factory gun do well and some just don't.
