    Default another option for the lefties

    Browning finally offering the xbolt in a stainless for lefties. Would rather see a composite stock offering, but this one has me interested. I love my 375h&h browning A bolt in stainless/composite. Don't seem to hear much about browning on this site.

    Nope......When it comes to Browning, the most I've heard is bad mouthing. So far my old A-Bolt in 270 stainless/synth has been a shooter.

    I have two Brownings, an abolt and an xbolt, I am fond of both of them, one of them goes with me into the field 80% of the time or better

    I don't know why folks give Browning a bad rap... Japanese or not, Miroku knows how to build one right.

    I picked up an X-bolt .270 last year....easiest rifle to get sub-MOA I've ever dealt with. Literally, shots 2,3,4 went into a bug hole group right on the center line 2.5" high. Ready to hunt. So far, I've tried 4 brands of hunting ammo (2 kinds of Federal, Barnes, and Remington) and everything is MOA or better.

    It's great to see more options for lefties. My husband and I are both lefties, and it's tough to find what we want.

    Regarding Brownings, an acquaintance bought an X-Bolt 300 Win mag a couple years ago, and it did really well. He was new to hunting and didn't shoot it a whole lot, but the times we were with him it did well off the bench.

    Perfect! Now I have to decide between 7-08 and 308. Got all the long action stuff covered, but I've been kinda watching for the right shorty. If I didn't already have several 358's, I'd even consider a rebarrel job.

    A-bolt carrier for 20 plus years. Love all of them.
    Had Andy shorten the .338 a couple inches a few years back before he moved down south.....moose and caribou haven't noticed it takes a fraction of second loner before the bullets thumps 'em!
    Thanks again Andy.

    Give MRC a look. If I was lefty, I would go that route first before a Browning.

    Thanks! They have quite a selection of lefty offerings. Like the control feed action and quite of calibers.
