New Browning A Bolt 6.5 Creedmoor

Folks,

I just bought a new Browning 6.5 Creedmoor to go with my Ruger 260. I took this gun to the range yesterday to sight it in. I used Hornady 120 grain Amax and Hornady 120 grain GMX Superperformance. The 120 grain Amax shot a three shot group of .345", while the 120 grain GMX opened up to 1.3".

    I like this better than my Ruger 260. I may end up buying a Browning Longe Range hunter in 6.5 Creedmoor for a bench rifle.

    ...looks like the 22" Stalker??? All my A-Bolts have been great rifles, real "shooters", the 6.5 Creedmore intrigues me...

    ...I've been drooling over the 26" "Long Range Hunter"...

    I am going to sell my 260 and buy one of those Long Range Hunters.
