I know I come up with unimportant posts, but as I have never shot a Browning A bolt much I would like to here some opinions as to the overall quality and accuracy of these rifles

    I personally don't care for the way they fit me, therefore I don't own any. I do have a friend who loves them and they shoot very well.

    Got an A-bolt and an x-bolt. Both nice rifles that would suit you well. If you get a wood stock one, if you breath on it, a ding appears.

    I have about half a dozen of them and like them very much. As has been said, the stocks won't take much banging around. But if you get a used one, it will already have some dings and scratches so a couple more won't bother you as much. The Medallion is pretty fancy.

    +1...I have original first generation A-Bolts, that are both first year production, in stainless...o in 30-06 that was my late father's, and one in 300 Win Mag. That 300 Winchester has slayed some whitetail, and elk.

    I've got an older A Bolt Stalker in 338WM. Trigger is very good factory and it shoots lights out. I like it.....
