I am not a hunter, but I shot this gun for the first time a few weeks ago at a target. The accuracy was amazing, four shots, first one a little left of X on center, the other two just below X and one dead center X. All within a couple inches of each other. If it was your dear in the scope, you'd be eating well that week. Remember, it's a magnum, so it has some punch to it, make sure she's tight on you shoulder before pulling the trigger... -
I went to the range on Friday afternon and set up at the 200 yd bench. First let me tell you when you are carrying a sendero there is a confidence in your walk knowing that you are a coniseur of choosing one of the best long distance shooting rifles around. I was not disapointed when I was putting rounds down range with impressive accuracy. Of course I mounted a Leupold Variax III boone and crocket reticle on this bad boy so to insure and compliment the complete rig. The mooth action of the bolt is unparrelled to any other rifle that I have shot in this class so far. I was shooting 180 grain and literally picking a 2'' circumferance on the targets and consistantly putting it in the center. I am 42 years old and my aim and steadiness is still very good but if you are a crack shot and you have a steady trigger sqeeze then there is no reason why you could not hit 1'' or better groups at 200 yds. This is the ultimate long range rifle in my collection and I highly recommend any one that hunts at 150 yds out or more two add this rifle to his or her collection. I apologize for the spelling in this review. Wrote it in a hurry. - J. R.
I JUST BOUGHT THIS RIFLE. I OWN A X-BOLT 7-MM08 ALSO. THESE NEW RIFLES FROM BROWNING ARE THE BEST SHOOTING HARD HITTING RIFLES I OWN. I ALSO OWN TWO BROWING BARS. THERE IS NO COMPARISON. CALVIN COOLIDGE. - C. C.
