Re: browning bar
I have a Browning BAR in 7 Mag with the Boss muzzle break system. Ihe rifle is extremely accurate (5/8" groups at 100 yds) Completely reliable with my reloads. It is called the Light Weight Hunter but certainly NOT light weight in my opinion! I have never weighted it but find it heavy to carry. If you buy one, get the BOSS system, which can be tuned for your specific load (see accuracy given above).
I also had one in .308 Win without the BOSS. I had great difficulty finding a load it liked and when I did, it turned out to be a 180 gr load. That was not what I wanted to shoot, so I traded it.
