Browning bar

Recommended Posts

I picked up a used BAR the other day in 300 mag. Anyone shooting a BAR or anything with a BOSS? I still plan to use my 270 for deer but it was a deal I couldn't pass up and for some reason I wanted a 300.  I tore it down when I got it home a cleaned it up and finally got to put some rounds through it the other day. It shoots well and the semi auto action helps with the recoil as does the BOSS. I picked up the CR for it so if I do use it hunting I don't have to worry about hearing protection. I didn't play around too much with groups but did get the BOSS set to 8.5 and I'm getting groups around 1.5".

I have a 7mm MAG and my dad has a 30.06 but neither are BOSS.

 

I really like mine. Bought it used maybe 10 years ago?? Never failed on me, jammed or otherwise. Its heavy, but it is reliable for me. I don't think I would want to carry it in the mountains or something, but I have had great luck with it.

 

Sorry I cannot help on the BOSS system though.

My. A bolt has the boss. I believe browning site has guide for setting your boss. It is caliber and bullet weight if I remember right. I shoot federal nosler partitions in 180 grains and my boss is set at just over 5 and a half

It said 5.5 but I found and 1/8 over 5.5 is the sweet spot

    • I never said that at all but my choice of "grill" or "smoker seems to bother you for some reason.   It's OK if you are a little bit jealous of my pellet smoker.....    
    • How does the cold smoke accessory work? I wouldn't fathom doing any this time of year or does it have a built in ice tray to keep foods cool?. If not any grill or smoker would do the trick in the cold. I'm with others,  having room to hang for long smokes works the best. It is a nice concept though.
    • The fatty was good! Got up at 6:30 am Friday morning to put it on the pellet grill.    
    • Ants are just trying to make a livin.
    • Buy an ant moat. Feeder hangs underneath it. Ants can’t cross the water. While I have never used this, I used to put my cup of grape jelly on a small plate, filled with water. Never had a problem with ants. So, in theory, the moat should work just the same.
    • I grease the pole with Mentholatum 
    • Gotta love wings!! Had to see what this reverse searing is about. Pork chops off to the side grabbing natural hardwood smoke then over the heat... tasty. 
    • Did a bunch of wings in the steam pot for 15 minutes yesterday. Let them cool and then brushed with oil and rub. Left uncovered overnight in the fridge. Tonight I grilled them indirectly over some charcoal and apple pellets in the smoker tube. Finished them off over the coals to get them crispy:
    • I'd just take a $20 loss and use the proper stuff your outboard is specified for.    It's just not worth it.   I feel like this falls into one of those "if you have to ask the answer is no" sort of things.
    • I have a half gallon of arctic cat APV oil, and was woundering if this can be used in my oil injected 2 stroke Yamaha 200HPDI? I bought a new sled this winter that requires C-TECH2 oil, so I have a half gallon of 45$ oil just sitting in my garage.
