The Browning X-Bolt .280

Browning X-Bolt

Greg showing the Browning X-Bolt

Long range shooting is something that I don't get to do often. I did not buy this gun for my collection. In fact, I didn't buy this gun at all. I won it in a raffle. I did buy the scope.

.280 Rem.

The .280 is based on the .30-06 necked down to accept 7 mm (.284 in) bullets, with the neck moved forward .050 in (1.27mm). The neck was deliberately moved forward to prevent chambering in a .270 Winchester rifle, as firing a .280 round in a .270 rifle could cause the projectile to get stuck in the barrel or rupture the barrel due to excessive pressure.
