Browning X-Bolt Accuracy

I have had a few posts regarding my X-Bolt accuracy (300 wsm). I wanted to post a pic showning my latest trip to the range this morning. This is crazy; darn near 3 shots through the same hole!

Re: Browning X-Bolt Accuracy

I've had a bunch of great groups with my XBolt 300 WSM but most were in the 1/2 inch mark not the 1/4 inch mark. What load are you shooting? I truly think the XBolt is the most underrated light weight hunting rifle there is.

Re: Browning X-Bolt Accuracy

Mine have mostly been around a 1/2". This time I really took my time between my shots and didn't rush anything (which is NOT like me). I wanted to see it's potential!

I don't load my own (don't have time). I am using Winchester Supreme Elite 150 grainers. All of the Brownings I own like them. They are expensive, but worthwhile in my mind!

That is freaking sweet accuracy from a factory gun and load. That will be an awesome deer slayer.

There are lots of people with $3,000 customs weighing well over 10 pounds that can't come close to that accuracy. You should be very pleased with the rifle!

Re: Browning X-Bolt Accuracy

I am definitely pleased. I really think that's pretty good for a 300 caliber with no muzzle brake. Now I have to fina another gun project to start
