  3. Very accurate, high gloss finish quality rifle Review by John

    Value

    I have a B78 in 30-06 topped by a medium priced Redfield scope in Leupold mounts. Shoots 5 shot groups well under 3/4 inch and better most times. Loves H-380 reloads with 180 grain Hornady BTSP bullets. Deep blued finish and high gloss monte carlo stock. Not a traditional highwall setup, but hard to argue with the total package. The more I shoot it, the better I like it. (Posted on 12/18/11)

  4. PROUD TO OWN THIS OUTSTANDING RIFLE Review by MAJOR DONALD HAYES SLOAN
    Quality
    Price
    Value

    AN EXCELLENT SINGLE SHOT. COMPARES FAVORABLY TO A DAKOTA MODEL 10; BUT FAR LESS EXPENSIVE AND FAR LESS FINICKY. THE TRIGGER IS ABOVE AVERAGE, BUT NOT A JEWELL TRIGGER. IF YOU ENJOY SHOOTING ACCURATELY, YOU WILL LOVE THIS SIMPLE SINGLE SHOT. THERE IS A POWERFUL URGE TO OWN MORE THAN ONE. (Posted on 11/12/11)

    Pros: Accurate, Simple Design, Easy to maintain, Easy to shoot well, Nice Recoil, Ergonomical, Fits very nicely in my hand, Reliable, Easy to Use

  5. A great looking and shooting rifle Review by Chris Lee
    Quality

    I topped my 30-06 B78 with a Zeiss 3x9 Conquest scope. I set a target at 50 yards for initial sighting in and the first 10 break in rounds. I cleaned the barrel between each round for the first ten rounds and was pleasantly suprised to find all ten round made a single ragged hole. I moved the target to 100 yard and fired five 3 shot groups, cleaning between groups. All 5 groups were well under 3/4 of an inch, Imoved the target to 200 yards and fired two five shot groups. 8 shots were in one ragged hole and two opened the group to just und 1 inch. Unlike earlier B78s, this one has a trigger to rival my Sako 85., crisp, light and a slight amount of overtravel. All shooting was done from a lead-sled rest. I spent a couple hours rubbing out the stock with Birchwood Casey's Stock Sheen and now have a new favorite rifle. (Posted on 10/27/10)

    Cons: Expensive
