You want an answer about your question ask it about the particular rifle you are interested in instead of just posting a caliber. David

I'm shooting a 6.5 PRC Browning X-Bolt Pro with its skinny, fluted barrel, fluted bolt and bolt handle and carbon fiber stock. It's a mountain rifle at 6 lbs. 3 oz. After 5 fast shots groups open up to a full 1 MOA to 1 1/4 MOA.
Great 1/2 MOA accuracy using 143. gr. Hornady EPD-X factory ammo. Trying some 147 ELD-M next week then buying Redding Precision 3 die setup. Maybe I'll get some 153 Hornady A-Tip bullets as well.
BTW, that is NOT my trigger finger. ;o)P7312027.jpg

It is a pretty good trigger for a factory rifle I adjusted it down to 3lbs. It was about 5 when I got it . Has very little if any creep which is how i like a trigger
