Be honest,you won't hurt my feelings.LOL
The Browning A bolt with a BOSS system is actually one of the most accurate factory guns ever invented. Without a boss, they are a luck of the draw like any other gun. Some will shoot well easily and others won't without lots of work.
One reason why you don't hear much about them is because there aren't a lot of after-market options for customizing like there is for Remington. Also, you have fewer gunsmiths that will work on Brownings.
I have a bone-stock Browning A bolt II in a stainless stalker configuration with a BOSS that I have used to kill a myriad of elk with from 450 yards on out to near 1000 yards. The gun shoots 3/8" groups at 100 yards with my handloads. I would put it up against any other gun out there for accurate hits at long range custom or otherwise.
