A-Bolt Target

Browning A-Bolt Target

Browning’s A-Bolt Target is a bolt-action, target shooting rifle chambered in .223 Rem., .308 Win. and .300 WSM. The Target model differs from other A-Bolts in that it has a matte blued, 28″ heavy bull contoured barrel (but it’s also available with a stainless steel barrel).

It has a single-stage trigger that sets off the action with a short pull, target style stocks with a wide, flat fore-end and an adjustable cheek piece. The barrel lays on glass-bedding, which acts as an intermediary so when the barrel heats and swells it will press against the bedding instead of the stock and stay on target.

Other features include a free-floated barrel, so when the barrel heats and swells it won’t press against the stock. It uses Browning’s Top Tang safety, which places the safety on the back of the pistol grip or where the action-hand’s thumb naturally falls. and the bolt requires a short 60-degree lift.

Browning recommends the A-Bolt Target for precision long-range shooting.
