I purchased a Browning A bolt in 325 WSM about two years ago. I guess the biggest problem I had with the rifle is it is made in Japan. How long have they been doing this I always thought browning was American. Oh yeah if it would not be for me reloading I would have not purchased this weapon $58.00 a box two years ago. I am however very satisfied with it. I use 150gr Hornady psp and have shot deer on out past 300yds with it. I would put a 300win mag up against it any day though. I bought this rifle with the thought of taking just one rifle weather I wanted to hunt elk, bear, mule deer, or whitetail.
