I know this is an old thread, that really doesn't take away from the reliability of the Browning A Bolt or its accuracy. For instance, I haven't shot my old friend in a couple of years, cleaned her and put her in the safe a couple years ago and got distracted by her sister in 25-06, an A Bolt II. I was shooting a little bit today and decided to warm her up just to see if she needed any adjustment. I fired four rounds in the space of maybe 4 mins. Here are the results. From the location of the group , she's still printing where she's supposed to , I don't know which bullet was the 1st round, but at that rate I am not complaining. Wish they still made them like that. I don't know why the pics are sideways ?
