My wife's grandad has one in .300 Win mag, sweet shooting and accurate rifle. The semi-auto action really tames the kick a lot. I've never had anything but positive experiences with Browning rifles.

They're still going to be lighter than the machine gun I used to haul around :biggrin:

They had one in 30-06 and .325 WSM. I'm leaning more towards the WSM.

I have one in .243 and in 30.06
Love them both, but the 30.06 is just an incredible gun!!

My dad had one in 338 for a while. Great gun, he never cleaned it and it still shot pretty good.

I have my G'pa's .30-06 and it's as smooth as butter. I too will never sell it, it's claimed many deer and it's first boar last year.

I was begining to wonder why I'd need a semi for hunting, but after all the good reports I just might have decided on one :thumbsup: Probably going to stick with the .308 round though.
