Re: lookin for a new plinker

I own a Tikka. I've never fired an X-bolt, I have shot a-bolts before and realy like them. Brownings seem to have better magazine design, shoot good, and look pretty. Tikka's have a better trigger IMO (2-4 lbs adjustable compared to 3-5 lbs). They are cheaper, and shoot just as good if not better. For an inexpensive "plinker" My vote is Tikka (I'm a little bias however lol).
I used to re-load but now I "hand-load".
