Re: Browning X-Bolt

I don't have a x bolt but an a bolt which is a step below the x bolt in .222. It's the most accurate gun I've ever had. It's unreal for straight factory.

Re: Browning X-Bolt

I wouldn't really say the a-bolt is a step below the X-bolt, unless it's an AB3. The x-bolt is just a newer design. I had an x-bolt when they first came out. Light, and shot great. Only reason I don't still have it is I traded the bare rifle even up for a kimber 84 with a leupold on it. The xbolts are great rifles, been around a few, and they all shot great.

I think I'm an alright guy, I think I'm alright

I just always thought they were a step down because the x bolts are a little more fancy. Mine is a a bolt ii stainless stalker. A real tack driver.

Re: Browning X-Bolt

I believe the X-Bolts have a little more by-hand work in their build than the A-Bolts. But great rifles, both.

Re: Browning X-Bolt

I have two A bolts, both synthetic stainless stalkers, 7 & 338 mags in left hand, love both of them, great shooters, sub 1 inch all day long.. I would think the x-_bolt would be just as sweet !

Re: Browning X-Bolt

Two A-bolts here, a .243 Hunter and a .30-06 Stainless Stalker. They are the 2 most accurate rifles I have, both capable of shooting 3 shot groups much tighter than MOA- and will do it with several loads and bullet weights.
I can't imagine an X-bolt would be any different.

Re: Browning X-Bolt

I have a x bolt medallion in 30-06 one of the most accurate guns i own, was the first gun i bought when i turned 18. Havent run hardly any factory ammo, mostly reloads, its really accurate with reloads.

Re: Browning X-Bolt

I have the X bolt hunter in a 223 1-8" twist. I also have the A-Bolt 2 in a 284 win. micro medallion. They both shoot clover leafs. The X bolt has the polymer rotary clip vs the steel a-bolt clip which i have no complaints on both clips. I like the bolt unlock button on the x bolt. I plan to buy another x bolt. If i could i take them both to my grave with me.
