Hi folks, I just bought my first Browning rifle. It's a X-Bolt short action Hells Canyon Speed in 300 WSM. I shoot a variety of rifles and wanted something that had good ethical kill probabilities at longer ranges. I trust my Win Model 70 30-06 100% out to a max of 300 yards but I also wanted something that could easily go 400 yards or more with ethical kill results. I also shoot a lot at the range to keep my skills sharp with a variety of rifles. I'm bordered by BLM land and have a primitive range about a mile behind my house which is sweet if you like to shoot targets as much as I do. Oh and yes, I'm and old fart that refuses to be old.
