I have a good friend looking into buying a varmint rifle in .25 wssm, he was looking at Browning rifles and asked me if they are any good.  Frankly I don't know a single person that owns a Browning, and I couldn't give him any good advice.  Anyone got some good advice for him that I can pass along?  Thanks..

They are fine if you like push feeds.

Browning builds a really nice rifle, IMO.

We have had two BLR (Browning lever action) rifles in .308.  They were top quality, looked great, and handled well.  They both shot 1 1/2 inch groups with Winchester factory ammo.

My friend has a BAR safari in 300win mag, it feeds flawlessly and is very comfortable to carry and to shoot, however it is plagued by a cheap NC star scope that has a 50mm obj but gathers so little light the only thing I would do with one is open it up with dremel tool and then play with the lenses.

But he never cleans the action, and only cleans the bore with a dry bore snake, but some how it is extremely reliable. it shoots a 2moa group. which could probably be reduced to .75moa if he cleaned it and bought a nicer scope.

Browning is my favorite "off the rack" rifle.
