I'm a large man and the Browning stocks are just too short. They shoot like a house afire...I just gotta duck to get inside. I like the Remington 700/7 more since I don't gotta worry about a scope cutting my brow when I shoot it. Both brands shoot about the same. The other thing I don't like about the Browning brand is that most Browning owners play golf and eat ham biscuits with grey poupon mustard! Tap Tap on the winder...pardon me, do you have any grey poupon \:\)

Don't play nor care for golf. I can take it or leave it on the grey poupon mustard,although it does go good on a sandwich with mircale whip,poor mans ham,american chesse on sliced white bread,washed down by pepsi ,mtn dew or coffee,on the tail gate of a chevey after a mornings hunt.Made even better with a deer or two on the meat pole by way of the Buckmark. ;\)

Browning A-bolt- 60 degree bolt throw,drop down hinge floor attached magazine,handleing and accuracy.Prefer the Stalkers to all others.Only dislike is the plam swell in the A-bolt 2 stalkers stocks.


What he said. Except I like the palm swell for some reason.

Only remingtons I have owned were a model 700 .243 and it was ok and then I had a sendero that I had to have worked on before I could shoot it.
Pretty accurate though.
Just prefer the feel and action of a Browning.

I Like Remingtons alot better than the Brownings. Just my preference. I have alot of Remingtons. My all time favorite gun/action is the Winchester Model 70 Classic(pre-64 action).
I like my Ruger, too. It is not a very smooth action, but it is a strong action and very accurate.


What I don't like about Brouwnings is the short bolt throw, and when the bolt is open, it has ALOT of slop. I had a Gold Medallion and sold it. It shot alright, but not nearly as accurate as my other brands.

My BAR is a completely factory rifle with no additions or changes. It's in 7 MM Remington Magnum and it is a good rifle. My 700 Remington in 308 is good also accuracy it depends on the individual rifle.

If you are going by autos then the BAR blows all of remmy's out of the water. Even the older BAR.

I got a belgium BAR made around '91 with a leupy 2.5x8x36. Gun is mint and I plan on shooting it till it wears out. With factory rem. core lokts I can shoot 3/4" to 1" all day long at 100. Note: that is factory. ;\)

After that,a Savage \:D

I'm a die hard A bolt fan. I have one that has been rechambered from 7/08 to 284 Win. Restocked it in a McMillan. It shoots under .2 and has been my go to rifle for almost 15 years. Like others have said, boringly consistent. Even before the work I had done on it, it shot .5 out of the box. The rechambering was my preference since shooting big bore silhouettes YEARS ago with a remington XP100 pistol chambered in .284 Win.

However, we threw the factory Rem barel away and replaced it with a Shilen to get the accuracy we wanted.
