    Browning X-Bolt 30-06 ammo

    All,
    I've ordered my X-Bolt in 30-06 and just wanted to seek a bit of knowledge on what it likes to eat? What results have people had with factory ammo and which do folks think is the best for this rifle?

    Cheers

    165/180 Grain Federal Power Shok, great groups, knocks down any deer in the UK.

    The only factory ammo i use was the 150gn winchester silver tips, ( had a few boxes thrown in when i bought the rifle) they were very accurate, but a bit of meat damage on the smaller animals roe etc, i now load my own 150gn speer sp, shoot from munties to reds no problem,

    Here you go, yesterday, 30-06 Xbolt, Federal 180 grain, job done.
    What you might find is the trigger pull is a bit heavy, but that is easily fixed without the need of a gun smith.

    Cheers

    Excellent! Hopefully I'll have a pic like that soon! Although the estimated delivery date is December as Browning aren't keeping stock of 30-06 anywhere, only .308 and .243

    170 grain Geco works well in my 30-06. I keep one permanently in Germany at a friends, saves hassle traveling/flying.
