I bought a Browning A-Bolt lefthand .300 Win Mag many years ago from a dealer at a gun show that had already sold the same model in 7mm Rem Mag. I hunt only with handloads. My A-bolt has taken 3 elk with one shot each at short to moderate range. The best shot, however, was a heart shot on a 120-130 lb black bear in the Bob Marshall Wilderness at more than 400 yards. The rifle is consistently MOA or better with the right handloads. BUT, one is not a large enough sample to to evaluate quality. I would not be reluctant to buy a Remington 700, Winchester 70, Ruger 77 or virtually any other bolt action rifle of equal or higher price. And, while I don't like the appearance of a black synthetic stock and a stainless steel action and barrel, I prefer SS and a synthetic stock for rugged hunting terrain.
