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.
