Re: I chose Browning this time.. hope i dont regret it!!

U will love the browning. As u may have noticed they don't get enough recognition on here. They r very accurate guns from the factoryfor the price. I realize mosr on here r long rangers, but a lot of us can shoot our factory rigs pretty well too. I have a stainless stalker in 300win that can shoot under 1 in at 200. Now to me that's pretty good for facrory gun. And s it's a browning.

Re: I chose Browning this time.. hope i dont regret it!!

I'm sure you know the answer by now...And I don't know why Brownings are not more popular in the LRH and other groups. Both of mine are shooters, but the BAR is much more finickey when developing an accurate load and harder to shoot super accurately with that squishy trigger. Maybe its because not as many gunsmiths know how to work on them...I don't hear of barrel replacements etc. so much with Brownings.

My Xbolt Hunter (sporter barrel) in 243 commonly shoots 1" or less groups @300 yards. (3 or 4 shot groups. ) I have hit 1" bullseyes in a single shot "group" at 345 yards while it was lightly snowing. Best group was 4 rounds in .1" @ 200. 5th round was 1" away. All off of a bipod and rear rest.

I don't know if its because the barrel never gets hot when its freezing out, but my Xbolt is extremely stable when I'm shooting prone, laying in the snow.

I think an Eclipse, or something I build that is quite a bit like it, is in my future.

+1 on that! I have always liked the Browning look, clip and 60 degree bolt. Love that stock. I too am interested in how this gun shoots for you.
