Browning shortrac 308 hogstalker semi auto
 
What kind of accuracy to expect from this gun and is it worth the money

Accurate enough to put pork on the smoker or in the smokehouse. It is not intended to be a benchrest gun, but will shoot minute of swine.

You have to decide if you want it spend your money.

Would I buy one?? No.

Hasn't been out long enough. I'm not into being a paying beta tester. While the basic action has been around a bit this configuration has not.

Just my opinion.

If you get one let us know how its working for you!!

I will probably end up being the beta tester. Brownings have long been my favorite guns. The only reason I do not own a hogstalker now is I have seen nothing but pictures of the gun. I am not going to buy any gun, even a Browning sight unseen.

I can say this much the hogstalker is built for accuracy. But there are other factors one must consider when buying a gun. One needs to know if they can buy accessories to fit the gun, that magazines are plentiful and that the gun can be serviced or customized in the USA. I have paid less for good trucks than the cost of a hog stalker. If it is not all of that a hog stalker will not be in my safe.

I would not hesitate to buy a Browning, but I would just get a Shorttrac .308. I really do not care for pistol grips on long guns.

If you only need a 5 round max I would not buy the hog stalker. This is the Browning I would buy. Graded Brownings hold their value. You can expect to sell this rifle for more than you paid for it. I have graded Brownings I bought 20 years ago. Bill Gates can not buy them today, Most people that own a good Browning feel the same way.

It could be that I do not know how to navigate the Browning site. All I could find for the product description is a left handed rifle. A right handed rifle will have the same features.
