View Full Version : Most accurate A-bolt is...?

January 23, 2000, 09:11 PM
In the Browning A-bolt, what is the most accurate calibre at 250+ yds? This assumes a Leupold/Nikon/etc. scope of appropriate power, competency of the shooter to best use the calibre, and ammunition that has been matched to the particular rifle. A pretty short (but big) question. Thanks guys!

Its always the shooter, well a good part of the time. I have been shooting a A-bolt stalker in 7 mag. When I'm breathing right, tender on the trigger it will constantly shoot 1 1/2 at two hundred. If I had the time to practice alot, I think it could shoot 1" Brownings usually shoot very well.
Just pick one of the many great calibers and go have fun. Oh yes, it helps to stand on the correct side of the rifle. You see, I'm a lefty-----Hooooooooray!!!!

Are you interested in the flattest shooting round? You can check out what Winchester Ammo brings to the table at http://www.winchester.com/products/index.html I'm personally a fan of the 300 win Mag. The only other round I would seriously look at would be a 25/06. It's about as flat shooting as you can get.
