    Hi all,

    I posted this in the browning link but i noticed it is quite dead so thought i might put it out to the wider community.

    "I recently ordered a Tikka t3 hunter at my local gunstore and they have contacted me and informed me that i will be waiting until the end of the year for shipment, they have offered me a refund. I am contemplating changing my order to a browning a-bolt hunter but am curious as the how they shoot, their action and accuracy?

    I will be looking at buying one in .270"

    Let me know your thoughts,

    Thanks alot

    The A-Bolts are fine guns with a good reputation for being accurate. If you look around on the 'net long enough, you'll find some negative reports, but I've never seen a bad A-Bolt.

    I have owned both, and to be quite honest, I prefer the A-bolt. It's an excellent rifle. I've owned many Brownings of different models too, and their customer service has been excellent the once or twice it was needed as well.

    Brownings are excellent along with a few others.

    Be the First on your Block to get a Browning X-BOLT... Get one on order... It will be worth the wait... Besides BUSH is going to help you buy your new Gun with that check that's in the Mail...<:))

    I love my A-bolt, they make excellent hunting rifles. Mine is plenty accurate, and is overall a solid gun. Just as good, of maybe better then the Tikka.

    Tikka is a good gun, but I have personally fired a Browning A-bolt, and grouped well within an inch at 100 yards. Pretty gun, smooth action. Both are good guns, but I kinda like the Browning.

    I own, or have owned just about every brand of commercial bolt action made, and my favorite is still the browning a-bolt chambered in 308.
     
  12. I say get the A-Bolt also. When I did a personal inquiry to a select few, that was one that was recommended to me to get.

    Sam I'd have to agree with ya' I don't think Bush included Australian residents in on the stimulus checks. lmao I suppose one could call and ask. As they say never hurts to ask. Worst that can happen is they say NO. lol
