Purchased a BAR longtrac in 7 mm rem. Bought VX3 scope. Cant get it to group at all. Is tbeir any problems out their with this gun? Yes the mounts are tight and torqued,tried winchester, Hornady, and Remington. Nothing will group better than 6 to 8 ". Thats in a vice, sandbags, anyway you want to shoot. At 100 yrds the group is a little better not much. 200 yrds is where I need the zero for this rifle. Tried scope on another rifle no problems which was also a 7 mm. I'm beginning to believe the aluminum reciever is not stable. Any ideas, suggestions are more than welcome beautiful rifle, may soon trade in and grab a Sako, I've just always wanted a BAR thinking different now. Thanks

There are far to many things that can be causing your problems with your Bar! I will only tell you that I have in the past owned 4 Browning Bars in the .270 cal, 30-06 cal. 25-06 cal and the .338 Win mag cal. All of these rifles shot under 1.5 inches at 100 yards off the bench. The .270 shot .685 with factory Federal 130 grain ammo!

You may need to send that rifle to the Browning company and let them look at this rifle of yours. It will be cheaper than most gunsmiths and Browning knows their products far better than most.
