Default Browning A-bolt in a 243 or keep looking?

If you own a Browning A-Bolt are you happy with it? I want to buy a rifle in a 243 calibur.

I want a free floating barrel but thats about the only thing I have narrowed down. I'm looking for a good Coyote gun.

A-Bolts are excellent rifles.

I love the A-Bolt but have no use for a 243.

I find that they are well made,but I have no use for the overdesigned magazine system.

I appreciate all of the input. I want to get a nice gun but just can’t make up my mind which one.

Have you held it? Shouldered it? Tried the trigger? If itfits you well, then it's a great gun. If it doesn't, then it's not for you.

There are plenty of manufacturers out there who make serviceable rifles. You have to hold enough of them to find the one that comes to you like a newborn baby. Like a momma cow, you'll know which one is your own. And unless it's a Remington 710, you'll have more than a good enough rifle. You'll find out what it likes to eat, and you'll nurture it, & you'll read it bedtime stories, & you'll be at the range often enough with it to make it a natural part of you.

For me, that riflewas a Remington 700 CDL. It may not fit anyone else on the planet, butI haven't yet felt another rifle that nestled itself into mybody and "loved" me as much as thatrifle. And if & when I find another that feels that way, I'll promptly pull out my credit card, and make it "sibling" of my 1st rifle!

If your newborn is an A-bolt, don't think twice: adopt it on the spot. Hey, it needs a loving home, too!

Find your rifle, and nurture it: it'll take great care of you!
