    7-08 or 308 Rifle wanted.

    A friend is after his first hunting rifle, something like a T3, X-bolt etc in good condition, preferably with a wooden or laminate stock.

    What’s out there?

    I have an x-bolt 7mm08 with uncut SS barrel and walnut stock. Barrel is a few months new and has seen just 20 rounds max. Stock is a year older but still in really good nick. Good fit to action, barrel is free-floated. I wound up with two of these rifles and put the best barrel into the best stock and that's what this rifle is. Like it should be it's highly accurate. It carries a zeiss 4-12 scope if that's of interest. I've shot plenty of goats at 300y with these x-bolt rifles. I just got a 6.5 creedmore which I love so the x-bolt will be staying in the cabinet quite a bit. So I am open to parting with it. Not gagging to lose it, but open minded if going to a good home.
