All the A-bolts I have seen were able to shoot decinet , accuracy wise. The bedding should cover the entire bottof of the action if possible , not realy needed under the side rails , the front both sides and the bottom of the recoil lug should have some space around them or you can cause the action to be stressed. A couple pieces of masking tape works well as a spacer , the only place you want contact with the recoil lug and bedding is behind the lug and all the bottom of the action.

Check to see if the barrel is touching the stock anyplace if it is you want to stop that , you might also check your trigger , all the Browning guns I've messed with had very heavy triggers
