Re: I chose Browning this time.. hope i dont regret it!!
I had th the browning eclipse-1000 with the heavy 26" barrel and the boss in 7wsm. It shot 1/2 groups with factory ammunition and I hadn't adjusted the trigger. I like the short bolt throw, easily the best detachable mag box system and fit and finish awseome. The 28" barrel sounds awesome. FN's hammer forging process with barrel's is top shelf. You won't be disappointed, you give up extensive customizing that the rem 700 has, but you get real quality and service with Brownings. I think precision shooting at targets is a more expensive game then most of us know. But for day in day out target shooting, if you can get a load in th 1/2 inch range you can't beat quality browning. Have fun. Have confidence in your rifle. They hold their value in the secondary market just fine.
