I've looked at the AB3, and it just seemed cheap-feeling to me. I have a few T3's and they all are wonderful rifles. Accurate, dependable and tough. Good out of the box trigger. That being said, if you can get a Browning XBolt in .270 Win. you'd have a winner as well. I have an XBolt in .270 and it shoots every type of factory ammo that I've tried very well, enough so that I haven't started handloading for it yet. Weatherby Vanguard is another good one.
