Fine group, nicely done. As far as I'm concerned , anyone who say a T bolt isn't a tack driver either hasn't shot one or is doing something wrong. We have both a Belgium T bolt and the new T bolt and both can shoot groups like that.

My brother has three T Bolts. I've shot them all. With the right ammo they will shoot with CZ's and Anschutz's I've shot and own. He and I are right handed. He found a good deal on the last one and bought it only to realize that it was a left bolt. That is both of ours favorite. T Bolts should be purchased opposite handed. Very comfortable to run and never have to take your hand off the trigger or eye off the scope.

Great guns for sure... if only they could put a better trigger... they should offer a deluxe version with good trigger

Yeah, probably the heaviest trigger I've run across in a long time. If they were mine I'd be taking them apart and swapping in lighter springs.

That's fascinating! I've owned multiple T-Bolts and that thought never even occurred to me But how do you support the gun while working the bolt?

Thanks!

It would only be good for bench rest shooting or prone with a bag or bi pod for support

Let's be clear, the current generation T-Bolt isn't a benchrest gun, but even with the super-light, super-thin synthetic stock, it is capable of small groups. These examples are both five shots at 50 yards from simple bag front and rear rests ...



And for all the complaints about the heavy trigger pull, Browning's stock offerings are the real impediment to greater consistency/accuracy. They're just too light and too thin for that.

Enjoy!
Dave

I have a Tbolt Sporter and it is crazy accurate but I put a low power scope on it and just don't shoot it much. I did rework the trigger which would not go lower than about 4lbs if I remember correctly but super crisp and really nice. It now would goreally light but not safely until you get back up to around 1lb or so. I may have to throw a bigger scope on but it doesn't sit in a rest very well as mentioned.
