    Have a .243. excellent accuracy, nice and light. Have used various 100gr , Hornady, RWS and Federal. All seem to shoot equally well. All in all - excellent rifle.

    Have an x bolt stainless synthetic in .223rem for foxing and roe north of the border, great rifle for the price a bit choosy on what factory ammo it shoots, federal powershocks 55g are very good through it and partizan 55g psp another, hates remington though.
    not a bad trigger when you back it of to min. You could do a lot worse for the money, also not seen any for sale second hand either so any body who has bought one seems to be keeping them.
    A new version has just come out with a fluted barrel so you may be able to negotiate a discount on the early models.

    I've got an X -Bolt .243 Stainless Stalker. Excellent rifle, can't fault it. Shoots very well with 100 grain federal factory ammo and various home loads. For the range, 90 grain FMJBT, spot on.

    An excellent rifle for the money.
    There's no such thing as a stupid question.

    Hi Stu,

    I have one in .270 with Doc 8x56 glass on top and a Pred 8 up the sharp end. Absolutely terrific rifle and the price is good as well.
    I was using Winchester Super X (150grns) originally which would group all in 1.5" @ 150 mtrs. but not what I considered consistently.
    Switched to Federal Power shocks (150 grns again) and it now puts all in 1" @ 150mtrs. consistently and will very often put bullet on bullet when I'm in the groove.
    A really good combination and all straight out of the box (No discernable stock wobble by the way)

    Happy days and enjoy bach

    The pure and simple truth is rarely pure and never simple

    X Bolt

    I also have one in 243. I recently got it recrowned, not that it shot bad at all just wanted to see if i could make it any better and i felt a 11 degree target crown a bit easier to keep clean.

    As previous posters have said great rifle for the money and light even when scoped up.
