    thinking of purchasing a xbolt 223

    As the title ,am seriously thinking of getting a browning xbolt in 223 for fox. but have read some interesting articles on the net ,about rounds failing to eject ect.
    really like the look and feel of the rifle in the synthetic stock and the price ,but am a bit concerned what I have read .
    so how do you guys rate them, that have them, or have had them .
    thanks neill.

    Neill,
    I have the xbolt stainless in 243, it's a workhorse that has never let me down no matter what the weather. I would buy another when the time comes, hope this helps.

    I havnt heard anything bad about them. I considered one in 308 but ended up with a Sako instead. They seem like good value to me
