The first I wanted to check out was the Browning X-Bolt. The gun has won quite a few rewards in recent years, and has been touted for its incredible accuracy. I wanted to check it out for myself. Picking up a black, synthetic-stocked 300 Win Mag, I fed a cartridge in the chamber, settled down at the bench with the rifle in a Lead Sled, took aim at bowling pin hanging from a scaffold 100 yards away , and hit it dead on. My next ten shots all hit that pin, plus one at the 200-yard mark. When I picked up the gun and shot offhand, I didn't hit every one, but enough to make me happy. Recoil was mild, and the gun just felt good in hand. Retail price is $939 - practically a steal.
