Well, after checking all the stores in my area, I ended up with a x-bolt 300wsm. Hopefully I didnt make a mistake... I couldnt find a single gun in 30.06 minus a few savages, one synthetic X-bolt which was grey(SO UGLY, I know looks arent everything but it was just BAD) and one remington that was way over my budget....1300 bucks. The guns have been flying out the door for the upcoming hunting season. Every place I went said both A-bolts and X-bolts in 30.06 were on back order for at least a month if not more. After holding multiple guns in calibers ranging from 270 to 338....the x-bolt just felt the best. The only concern I have is...
WILL THE 300WSM survive the test of time???
The gun shop I purchased it from actually had a surprising variety of 300 WSM
ammo. I just dont want to be hard pressed to find ammo in 3 years and I dont hand load...yet at least.
So did I make a mistake? Should I return the gun?
