    I have had time to shoot the rifle, and try different ammo. I found that the Federal premium gold medal match 168 grain is what the gun likes. At 100 yds i can hit the same hole with three shots. At 500 yds i was able to get a three shot group right at 4 inches. So still under MOA out to 500. I put about 100 rounds down range. Now that the gun is sighted in and i have learned to use my scope at different ranges i feel very pleased with the gun all around.

    Its a Browning A bolt Target model in .308 I have a sightron SIII 6-24x50 with target turrets.

    Just wanted to post so that anyone interested in Browning target rifles could have some real feedback. I love the rifle. If you decide to get one im sure you will too.

    I've always wanted one of those but had a hard time finding one. Is the set trigger pretty good on it?

    You will want to pull out the factory trigger spring and replace it with a Rifle Basix 1.25 lb or Timney trigger spring, then take all the creep out of it.
