Don't kid yourself, 700's make it out the door every bit as bad. You were the unlucky buyer of a bad rifle. How many manufacturers guarantee ANY kind of accuracy, let alone guarantee it past 100 yards? If Ruger did they would have gone out of the rifle business decades ago. The fact of where it's made has nothing to do with anything. Miroku made Japanese Browning's are some of the finest made firearms out there. You were just unlucky enough to get a bad one. I have 4 Browning A-Bolt rifles from .22 LR up to .375 H&H Magnum, and all are fine rifles. At least give them a chance to make it right. Granted, they're not going to turn it into a bench rest rifle, but they will fix it. Bill T.
