Wow, 115 views and not one response. Bought the gun anyways and look forward to confirming what it's capable of. Planning on using it this year for bear and deer.

Well limb lets face it, cost keeps the average Joe deer hunter away from the word Browning. I have two a-boltss, a 7 mag and a .338 mag and both have outstanding accuracy and will shoot .50-.75 3 shot groups all day long and that's with hunting bullets and 3.5 X 10 Leupolds. The actions, triggers are just about perfect for hunting.

Re: Browning A Bolt II Long Range Hunter

I own a Browning ABolt medallion in .270wsm and my friend owns the same gun in 300wsm. Both are absolutely dead accurate guns and you can feel that they are much higher quality than any Rem/Win/Mossberg/Savage, but they should be as you paid for that extra quality. I think you will grow to love the gun if you can bring yourself to take it out and actually use it. I haven't been able to risk getting a scratch on mine yet

Re: Browning A Bolt II Long Range Hunter

I've had 5 A-BOLTS over the years.All were reliable and accurate except one.I had a 7mm-08 that no matter what I did,couldn't get it to shoot better than 3" at 100 yards.I sent it back and the customer service was the worst I've ever experienced.Other than that,they were all nice but no better than any other brand that I've had.I also don't consider them to be much worse than any other brand.I paid $915 dollars last year for a stainless synthetic Remington mountain rifle.That brings me to another point.I hear so much negativity about Remington quality.I bought that rifle and a model 7 in .243 over the past three years and both function perfectly and are very accurate.the mountain rifle is a .308 and it's one of the most accurate rifles I've ever owned.
