Default New Deer Rig!!







Browning Western Hunter Atacs camo, 6.5 creedmoor leupold 4x12 vx2

Soon as I get my ATF forms back the brake will come off an a Can will go on.

So far it's liking the 140gr bergers an 143gr eldX. The 130s float around a bit much.

I'm setting it up for 400yds an less whitetail even though I'm sure it can do way further.

Good looking outfit. Good move taking off that ugly thing on the end of the barrel. How about showing some 400 yard targets.

Nice looking rig, congratulations! I'm very happy with the X-Bolt Medallion I got back in the fall. Very accurate!

Nice looking deer rig.

I've never cared for brakes on rifles...but understand your ultimate plan to suppress it. I never really gave that much though for a hunting rifle and am interested in seeing how it affects your 400 yard targets.

Please post up your range fun as you give this one a work out.

I've never shot a Browning bolt action that didn't impress me with it's accuracy.

Man....I have great respect for those rifles.

I was in a local gun shop a few weeks ago that had one of the Savage Lightweight hunters in wood & blue/matte. It passed the eye test right away...looked great. It balanced well right ahead of the trigger...and felt like it maintain that balance with the right scope....and overall felt really nice.

The sales guy helping me said he personally owned a stainless version of it and hunted hard with it last year and really liked it.

I modified mine a bit and stuck it in a MDT LSS Chassis and that made it even better now it's totally weather proofed and a lot more user friendly in a climbing stand with the adjustable but stock it now has and topped it with a Swarovski 2.5x10x40 scope

the new eldx is supposed to be the flattest shooting round they make, or so says the commercials. I took a box the range about a month ago and put them through my 30/06 and didn't like them I could not get them to group very well and they had about 5 more inches of drop at 200 yards then the 20 grain lighter sst. I have been shooting the sst for a couple years now and have never had anything run and they always group under an inch
