Re: Savage mod 10 vs Browning BLR
My concern was you lumped all lever guns together and did not point out that that the BLR was completely different. I even gave you "Although the poster was only interested in pure accuracy (and your answer has the potential of being correct)....".
What is accurate to some is not for others. Without knowing the real interest of the poster we must assume his uses. You assumed bench rest accuracy (a reasonable assumption since he asked for the "Most accurate") and I assumed hunting or non-competitive target shooting (I guessed that was what he might really need ???). I wonder which the poster is after?
A MOA gun (which my BLR is) is adequate for most non-competitive shooting sports but would fail miserable in a competition shooting contest. But I sure would not like to carry around a bench rest gun on a hunt. I also wonder if a better shooter than me could get even better results than MOA out of a BLR? In addition I think a lot of people like the bragging rights of a sub-MOA gun when that is not really their need. In this case anyone asking to compare accuracy between any lever action and any bolt gun, I think is looking for MOA accuracy, not sub-MOA accuracy but of course I am only guessing.
I'll also give you that any two piece stocked gun like any lever is at a disadvantage for accuracy compared to good bolt gun with a single piece floated barrel stock. But the BLR is a sleeper since it is really a bolt gun that is lever operated with no receiver stretch as seen in other lever guns. That was my whole point.
