    No issues thus far with the Xbolt I know of, ive used a .243 and it is very good piece of kit, one I wouldnt hesitate buying...10-10 for Browning from me!

    I have an X-Bolt in .243. It's the stainless stalker with synthetic stalk, cracking piece of kit. Fitted with an ASE Ultra mod that matches the barrel nicely, only aesthetics but I like it!

    Always manage good groups and like the handling, I did my research before buying and I'm glad I did, the gun always gets good reviews and I'll gladly give it my backing. I know sportsmanguncentre are doing a special on them at the moment but if your anywhere near Lancaster Malmo guns are hard to beat.

    Just bought a 243 stainless/synthetic to replace a custom job i sold. It was a great rifle but a bit on the heavy side. The X bolt is good value for money and finished well. I have put one of the new Atec mods on it keeping the outfit nice and light.

    Mine shoots well enough but gets a bit warm after three shots on the target and the 4th and 5th wander a bit. But the important one, the first shot from a cold barrel is spot on.

    Cheers

    I concur with what all have said. I have a .243 X Bolt Stainless and rate it highly. It nice and light, shoots straight, drops deer and doesnt cost a fortune. Kind of ticks all my boxes.

    As Redneck mentioned the barrel does tend to heat up a bit after the 3rd consecutive shot but unless you are paper punching or have 4+ Deaf and blind deer lined up in a row then its not actually a practical problem
