New R1

Ben 616

Recommended Posts

My new walnut 308 should be here wednesday. have been carying browning BLRS for 30 years with no complaints ever so My first choice was a BAR untill I orderd one and was told no problem will be deliverd in 4 to 6 months. At this point Im thinking that was a blessing in disgiuse as on doing some reading there are points to the R1 that I like much beter. It looks to me that the benelli wins hands down in the ease of dissasembly and assembly. I like the idea of the cyro treated barrel I have not heard ahything in regards to guns but have heard very good things on this treatment to performance engine parts. I like the option of being able to puchase a second barrel if I want a different caliber. I live and hunt in northern ontario mostly for Deer and moose. My hunting style puts on about 8 miles a day for two weeks in the deer hunt and at least half that for a week during the moose season so I need a gun that is nice to carry and that fits. My old BLR is so well trained that the deer is usually on the ground befoure I know Ive pulled the triger. The other senerio is that I have to count the bullets left in the second clip to figure out how many shots Ive taken. Doging is much different than sitting on a stand if you see a deer you are lucky to get one quality shot and you better be fast to get it or its gone. I have a 100yd range cut out in the field cant load any ammo till it gets here hope my browning rounds will work for a first hura can always shorten them up I guess there is no such thing as cheap amo were I live. I will let every one know how it shoots I dont spend days trying for a sweet 3|4 inch load because without a bench and a lead slead I cant shoot anywere near that good anyway I find that I just have to become familiar enough with my gun so that I can wave around in the breeze pull the triger when it feels right and hit the target
