    That's a good lookin' rig and a nice shooter. From what range is that group? 100 yards? 200 yards? more? Is that factory ammo or handloads?

    Also, I'm fairly new to this forum but after reading for a while, the conventional wisdom on rifle 'brands' seems to be remington, savage and custom. What lead you to choose a Browning?

    it was shot at 100yds off a bipod. i'm using handloads, 87gr hornady hpbt with 40gr of imr 4831, it's a great long range deer/predator load.

    uhm i just liked the browning, i had went there intending to buy a remington vls 243, but i picked up the browning and just fell in love with it. plus it comes from the factory with glass bedding, free floated barrel, adjustable trigger (which is great), and i like the palm swell in the stock, which also has the dura coat finish.
