.060 groupingWhen dealing with your wife consider what she wants and can handle rather than what you actually want. I have a Browning
AB3, 300 Win Mag. I had a muzzle brake put on it before I fired the first round. The muzzle brake works great as it now has about the same recoil as a .243. Mine is an AB3 Hunter with a 26 inch barrel and a Vortex Diamondback 6 x 24 x 50. Sighted it in yesterday and was SUB MOA, largest group about 0.060 with Sig Sauer 165 gr copper bullets. If you are looking for a nice gun for your wife this would be one. Total cost for rifle, scope and mounts and muzzle brake ran right around $1100. Keep in mind that you will have to shoot quite a few rounds (140 in my case) before the barrel settled in. Prior to that groups were around 1 MOA + - Make sure that you do a thorough copper cleaning after shooting it. Mine liked to collect copper fouling until the first 100 rounds after that the issue seems to have disappeared.
