i don't own one but i've picked up a few. seem to be the best built lever gun in my opinion. a bit pricey though. why a lever gun? why not a bolt? bolts tend to be a stronger and inherently more accurate platform.

I've only seen them - never owned or shot one. They look good, but I'm with Ron on this. We are both bolt fans.

I have never shot a lever action gun before but I have heard that the .308 is a very flat shooting gun. I guess thats why snipers use them. Good luck with your decision.

The reason that snipers use the .308 is that it is the most accurate round and it is fairly flat shooting but more because of it's accuracy.

I had a model 94 30-30 for brush it is a great round, .308 I'm not so sure about,great open range round. The .308 was the main stay for the U.S. military with the older rifles, 7.62 rounds basically. Most of the Marine snipers used 30-06 for their weapon of choice, now they use those monster .50 cal.
Back to the question, anything Browning, is usually a very good rifle.
