Re: Browning Abolt for long range rifle?
if you have tried to get the BOSS tuned in and still haven't gotten it to shoot well , I would look at having it bedded , the barrel free floated and the trigger worked. If it shoots good one day and not the next then its likly having to do with some sort of bedding contact issues.
I personaly would have the boss taken off and have a good brake installed if you feel the need for a brake.
But the A-Bolt action is as good as any to build on as long as the job is done right and a good barrel is installed.
But first , assuming you have a good scope , check all the scope mounting hardwear make sure that its all tight and the scope is not in a bind , then bed the rifle and relieve the barrel is not touching the stock. After all this is done and everthing has checked out ok pick a bullet you want to shoot and get a load for it where its about the velocity you want then try to dial the barrel in again. The BOSS system causes a major pain for the reloader because it is desgined to tune the gun to the load where in reloading your trying to tune the load to the gun , if you try to many loads and try to tune each one you end up chasing your taill till the barrel is shot out!!
