    Good move on the BLR. Mine's in .308 as well, and a fantastic rifle. We're hoping to take out first elk this fall.

    The Long Rangers look good to me, on the web, but I've never held one. I'm sure it's a fine rifle. The only Henry I own is a BBS .41 mag, and it's another fine rifle. Not really an "experienced" answer for you OB, but an honest opinion.

    I am buying a Long Ranger in 308 Win.I have had a few BLRs.Mine were the original Belgium steel receivered ones.The only bad thing I can say was the trigger pull sucked,but none the less were super accurate.I read good things about the Henry LRs.Their stock is set up for a scope and they do have good trigger pulls.I got a good price on a slightly used one.Not a mark on it with fantastic wood.I should have it by the end of next week.OB

    I recently handled the Henry LR in 308WIN and it's a big cut above the BLR, IMO. Great trigger and the bolt is massive!

    I contacted Henry requesting the LR be chambered in 338FED and if they do, I'll flat out buy it!

    I would think 338 Fed and 358 Win would be big sellers!!OB

    I bought a Henry Long Ranger in 223/5.56MM a while back. I had it to the club once, shoots fine, the action is smooth. It has nice dark walnut furniture and is made in the USA. I find no fault in this rifle. It is on the heavy side, at least for me. The fact that it is made in the US was a big reason for buying it.

    I'd also like to pick up a Long Ranger in 308. I've had my eye on them since the introduction. I've handled a couple of them. Yesterday I handled one in a 6.5 and it was the best one yet. Great fit and finish, nice trigger, and the action cycled so smooth!

    My only hang up is that I want to handle a BLR before making my purchase, and I can't find one anywhere locally.
