Re: Savage mod 10 vs Browning BLR
I have one of each...A Steyr Elite heavy barrel in .223, bolt action and a BLR in .243. I have developed loads for each one; the Steyr gets tighter groups at 100 yards, but the BLR has a heavier bullet.so holds trajectory slightly better at longer distances. At least I was able to hit more falling plates at 200 yards with the BLR than with the .223.
I looked at the owner's manual for the BLR; the cleaning process is limited...you can't take the bolt out, according to the literature--reassembly is a real trick to get the rotating action back just right. Maintenance on a BLR is a different story from the bolt action.
