Browning BAR / HK SLB2000 as an Target Rifle?

Can the Browning BAR or HK SLB2000 fit the niche of a target, a la my M1A? I know little about the BAR but it seems to be marketed as a hunting rifle around these parts.

I haven't seen anyone use them as a target rifle, if you're meaning as a competition rifle.

My father has a BAR in .308, and it's pretty accurate... 2-1 MOA. Recoil is lower than you'd think for a lighter rifle. My AR10 is more accurate. It about ties my M1A, though I'm using irons on the M1A and he uses a Nikon Monarch.

Then again, we've never put it in the hands of a really good shooter with really good handloads. Only factory and surplus so far.

I've no experience with the SLB2000... never even seen one.
