My dad has a Browning BLR in .308 WCF. This week I put a new scope and some Leupold mounts on it for him. Examining this gun, I think I could be satisfied with it if I only had to pick one hunting rifle. It is lightweight and points like a shotgun, and the .308 cartridge will allow you to reach pretty far out there. The BLR has the same lively feel in your hands as the Marlin 336 and Winchester 94. It would be no special trick to load the .308 with .30 WCF level cast boolit loads for shooting on the range or deer in the woods, or load it strong for bigger game and longer ranges. The rotary bolt head and ratcheting action mechanism appear to be very simple and strong.
I think I'm going to have to pick one of these up sometime, mebbe in 7mm-08. Anybody else like the BLR?
