I have an X-bolt in a 7mm-08 and I love it. It is a joy to carry and shoots great.

Re: Browning X-bolt rifle any info.

I have one in 7mm-08 as well and I have only shot a couple of boxes of Remington Express Core-loct 140's and a couple of boxes of Hornady Superperformance 139's out of it and the accuracy has been very poor so far. Maybe I should send it in for them to check out--probably will if it doesnt do a bit better within a few more different ammo choices.

I am hoping that it just needs broken in a little to shoot well but so far it has been just down right horrible accuracy so far. I am talking 4" at 100 with the Remington and 6" with the Hornady. It really tics me off because I traded a really good shooting .308 A-Bolt on it when I bought it.

I do like the rifle though. The only thing I really don't like is the way they designed the top of the receiver so there is very little step down under the scope. I can't fit my thumb under the scope like I can on the A-Bolt so it carries a little different with one hand. I really don't like that at all.

RecurveMan; What factory ammo are you shooting?

I have one in .270 WSM with a Christensen Arms carbon barrel on it. It shoots really good. It's a great gun!

Re: Browning X-bolt rifle any info.

i have an X-Bolt medallion in 30-06 its a great gun, i love the way it carries. ive been shooting pretizan partizan for sighting in and brass, and then i used 150 grain hornady sst custom loads and i was key holeing at a hundred yards. Im hoping i can get better than this year, as im getting into handloading, so i hope i can get better accuracy than factory rounds.
