Thread: Browning X-Bolt Hunter

    Browning X-Bolt Hunter

    Hi All,
    Looking at getting a 30-06 soon and possibly thinking about the x bolt hunter any thoughts would be helpful or alternatives with out braking the bank.

    I had an x bolt in 243. The only problem with it was the trigger could not be set below 3.5lbs. If you can live with that then they are a good well bedded rifle. Well mine was. I exchanged it for a Tika because I am left handed and need a light trigger.
    I can speak in-depth and with great knowledge about most subjects until some bugger who actually knows what he is speaking about opens his gob .

    I have an X-Bolt Hunter in 300 win mag, I can tell you my trigger is ace and it is a fine accurate rifle. If you do get one you will not be disappointed.

    Had a play with a .243 stainless synthetic, really liked it, couldn't fault the rifle but watch the scope bases. I had to shim the windage, after that I shot 2 Hinds.

    Buy one, or buy a Howa!

    I was originally looking at a rem 700 in 308 but after trying a browning i quickly changed my mind, i got the A bolt tactical varmint heavy barrel with the bell and carlson stock, straight out the box it was sub moa at 100.

    but getting back on track the A bolt is apparently the underdog of the X bolt so i would say if a A bolt can deliver that then X bolt would be a good choice. just my opinion though,
