I own 2 browning X-bolts (.243 and 300 Win Mag). I honestly believe that X-Bolts and Weatherby Mark V are about the best main line rifle you can buy (non custom and under $1,300). I just about bought the same gun you are referencing, but in the typhoon camo. I ended up buying the Varguard S2 in Hog Reaper and put the ATN X-Sight on top of her. I will probably buy the X-bolt Hog Stalker next year. Keep us informed on how it does for you.
