Re: Browning lever action rirle
I have some experence with a BLR, I am by no means an expert on them but I have shot them before, overall I perfer a Marlin 336 for a lever gun or a bolt action for a longer ranged cartridge the BLR is something of a nitch gun though a very nice one. I had an issue with the last one I was developing loads for though, the firing pin strike was too weak to set off my CCI primers reliably, I don't know if that is a common issue but it would be a deal killer for me.
I have never taken one down put it back together and shot it, so I cannot comment on how well they hold their POI.

Anyways, got a new blr takedown..have run about 30 rounds through it.Wondered about the lock time, seems ok, and the trigger will take some time to get used to, so far I like it.It is a saddle gun, and as a .270 win , a sheep rifle.I chronographed a few loads..140 barnes @3000 fps, no real signs of excessive pressure (handloads).The only.other issue is a sloppy box magazine fit.Maybe just this rifle.
