    Browning X bolt Hells Canyon Speed

    Frigging dumb ass name for a rifle but does anyone on here own one?

    If so what do you think of it.
    Accurate enough?

    It comes chambered in a caliber I am interested in and could be a reasonable option for a guide rifle.

    Saw one in local shop and asked about it, response was not good, and that was from one of the guys I trust

    also apparently triggers aren't great

    Not so good so far. Everything I have seen on them they rave about the triggers so go figure.
    I am still hung on wether or not to build one or buy a factory offering.

    The stocks are actually quite good just a bit short for some , self included , but really gripy , if you wanted to put a label on it id describe it as a mountain rifle its certainly good to carry around even with a 26" barrel , I haven't weighed it but its pretty light even with the vx5 on it , fairly soft to shoot even with the average muzzle break it comes with , you can shoot it without holding the four end if you have a bipod , mine is 7mm rm & with the mcarbo spring Tahr mentioned trigger is around 3lb , for reference the only other 7mm rm iv fired is a sauer 100 & that thing rattled the scull like you wouldn't believe this is far more pleasant.

    It might be off the table for me as someone spoke to the importer for me and they won't be getting one in the caliber I want as they said they have to order 10 units and they're not keen to do that yet.

    I considered one.
    I have put a bit of thought into it and reckon if the PRC shoots the load I have planned, it will be perfect and user friendly across the board for people that need a rifle when hunting with me.
    I hate using unsuppressed rifles which is common with overseas hunters.
    If I can provide a decent alternative my ears will be thankful.
    They took a beating these last few months.

    Same. I don't think it is caliber specific just model, but I could be wrong.
