I bought a Stainless Browning X bolt 300 wsm, It has a short bolt throw so you wont crunch your nuckles if you like getting a good brab of the bolt like i do. Also the factory triggers are a big improvement over the a bolt. The clip design is nice. The gun has a reputaion of being accurate. The new recoil pad takes away the kick a good bit. you have some muzzle jump but you wont feel it on the sholder. Now you may not want a 300 wsm for what your doing if your deer and lighter, but the 300 wsm is versitle with ammo. You can pretty much find any bullet you want for it. All the loadings are out their. Theyu make the gun in a tom of diffrent calibers. Good luck!!
