Hey everyone, New to the forum but I've been shooting a Browning X-Bolt 270 for years. I've deer hunted with a shotgun and 30-30 Marlin for years, but as I sit on a tree line overlooking a field with 200+ yards of vision, I want something that I can count on for further shots. My wife bought a 270 X-Bolt years ago and I've loved shooting it. Accurate as hell - I can put 3 shots in a half dollar size pattern at 200 yards, and this year I plan to try further out. I bought a better scope for the one I will buy. That brings me to my problem, and question. I'm a cheap dude, so I was waiting until I had enough points on my Cabela's card (like Bass Pro shop if you don't live near me, actually owned by them now) and other gift cards to where I can get a rifle for free. I called in February to check the price of the X-Bolt Medallion in 270. Back then it was available, no problem. Now that I have enough to not have to pay anything for the rile, I stopped in to order it (not stocked, it's a special order here) only to find out that Browning has a short production run of their rilfes and this model is sold out everywhere. Bass Pro Shops also didn't have any. The guy behind the counter called Browning, and they told him they already had their production run earlier this year and they didn't know when they would be making more. My question is, does anyone know how long between runs? To me this is insane (although I get it, they can't produce all their models continuously), but the fact that they're sold out everywhere means there's interest and they are losing money by not making them. I builid my own rounds so I planned on spending a lot of time this summer building and shooting until I found the perfect round. Now I don't know if I will even be able to buy a rifle before deer season in November. Do they normally have a few runs a year? One a year? Thanks for any feedback!
