    28 Nosler - Browning X-Bolt

    Does anyone have experience with this rifle and chambering? How does it go for magazine length and projectiles? Can you run 180s and 195s seated right out and still fit in the magazine or is the throat / magazine length too short / long etc etc.

    Keen to hear how anyone has got on.

    Cheers,
    Dylan.

    Not that calibre but The x-bolt triggers I've seen are less than impressive. Sloppy fit and heavy break. Haven't done a trigger job on one so don't know how easy to fix.

    Very easy fix. M-Carbo spring replacement. A few dollars from the States.

    Ive also used an appropriately cut biro spring.

    I have had an x-bolt in .270 in the past so am familiar with the platform. I too did not like the trigger but wasn't aware of the spring replacement option at the time so that no longer worries me.
    @Been Upto Looking into a few options ay, wondering how much the rem mag will get used with my 284 up and running properly. And I'm curious on details haha.
