    Don't know about the abolt but had a browning xbolt - it was rubbish IMO.

    Tikka T3, CZ, or Sako A7 I reckon - you'll be hard pressed to find any bad feedback about any of these rifles (you'll find plenty of bad press about browning).

    Howa are also worth a look apparently - see my thread "how are howa?"

    brno or cz527 .223 - you'll regret getting anything else.

    I've got a Tikka T3 in .223 with a 1:8 barrel. Fantastic little rifle.
    Best bit is the weight - much lighter than anything else I've got. Accuracy-wise it will do sub MOA easily when you get the ammo right, but can be a bit fussy particularly with magazine length when trying to seat some bullets just off the lands.
    I'd buy another one.

    i had a day using a .223 on a range i believe it was a tikka --- it wasn't a T3 but an older version and it was fantastic i'd have one defiantly. (sorry this probably isn't very helpful)

    I'd check out the Howa as well. They're excellent value for money.
