Been doing a bunch of reading around on this rifle. Having not fired this rifle myself my views are from the experiences of others. The rifle is a great! According to the 20-30 reviews that I've read, some being more extensive than others. Ive been reading on the TC Encore, Weatherby Vanguard, Tikka T3, Marlin XL7, Browning X Bolt. Tons of good reviews on the net. Good luck to you on that.

I have shot the new x bolt in 270 and handled a couple 300 wins. If you like the A bolt (one of my favorite rifles) you will have no problem falling for the x bolt. Silk bolt! very fine trigger. all around very nice rifle! can't go wrong!

My buddy got one last year in 7mm mag. Great gun. I like that the long action magnums come with a 26" barrel (like a real magnum rifle should).

I have had no luck at local gun shops finding one to handle. All the user reviews has tweaked my intrest to the point of having to own one.

I dry fired an X-Bolt at a local shop (with the owner's permission). The trigger is outstanding. I'd love to have one.

How many X bolt,s models does he have and what calibers ? I could make the 2-2 1/2 trip if he has what I am looking for .
