I don't know much about these rifles. The new "Hell's Canyon" series looks friggin awesome grin and Outdoor Life's review of it makes it even more glorious. However, I could never find a "MOA-guarantee" on the website. I've never shot a Browning rifle, only held an old A-Bolt wood stock 243. Beautifully made guns indeed, but the lack of information on them has me confused. For reference, I'm more familiar with Vanguard, R700, T3, and I think the 510 Trophy-something-something by Savage.

OH WAIT....I've used a BAR a few times so I LIED...lol. But seriously, I'd love to get more information about the bolt guns Browning makes. Thanks smile

I have an X-Bolt White Gold Medallion in .270 Win. Beautiful rifle, nicely figured walnut stock, Super Feather trigger, smooth as silk bolt cycling and outstanding accuracy with Federal and Remington over-the-counter 130 grain ammo. Enough so that it's one of a very few of my rifles that I don't handload for.

It's one of my favorites.

My xbolt Carbon stainless stalker in 270wsm might be my most accurate stock rifle I own. Love it.

How would you rate the trigger on that rifle?

Far superior to any factory Remington 700 trigger. The xbolt has a good, not great, factory trigger. IMO it's one of the better ones versus other rifles near the same price point.

I love browning rifles. One of my favorites is the a-bolt

For my money it's one of the best buys, because I don't like synthetic stocks or real cheap wood

I have an A-Bolt Composite Stalker and it's a great rifle. The action is very smooth and doesn't have any slop. As others have said, the trigger is really good for a factory trigger. I would say it's really close, if not equal to, the factory trigger in my Tikka. I really like the 60° bolt throw too.

They look pretty and shoot well, but in my experience savage will out shoot at half the price.

That hell canyon looks nice. I am curious how good the stock is. 6lbs, coated for weather, threaded, good combo

It's a good factory trigger. Easy to adjust down to about 3.5lbs. Clean and crisp. Probably the best factory trigger I have that hasn't been tuned at all.

I have a Browning XBolt with a 20inch Threaded Barrel in 308.

Trigger is 3 1/2 lbs from factory and crisp.
Accuracy is excellent 1/2 MOA with Winchester 150 Ballistic Silver TIPs, with the Beck 308 Amax sup-sonic ammo is opens up to just over an inch.
I really like the magazine.
Action is very smooth.

This. I got an A-Bolt Medallion in .243 for my son and I love shooting it. Beautiful wood and very accurate.

Browning rifles shoot great, have a smooth action, and have strong build quality. I personally don't like the bolt handle, that's really my only gripe and that's easily changed out.

Friend of my has an A bolt in .223 WSM and it's a heck of a shooter.

Too ugly for me to think about. If I wanna shoot one, my friend has one and so does his dad.
