I plan to purchase a Browning BAR for larger animals, and have narrowed the calibers down to 300 WSM or 300 Win Mag, after having talked to a very knowledgable friend and gun store owner who recommended the 300 WSM. I plan to shoot pigs and bear, with occasional deer or pronghorn hunting at longer distances. I realize that the BAR would hold one less cartridge in the clip than would the Win Mag. This is not an issue. I plan to look for the Safari model without the BOSS.
