X-Bolt versus A-Bolt

I was kind of surprised when Browning came out with the X-Bolt, since the A-Bolt had been a solid gun in their line up for decades. What do you think of the X-Bolt?

I kind of like the rotary detachable magazine myself.

It's gonna take a while for me to get past the stock styling. There's some unnecessary lines there to me.

Re: X-Bolt versus A-Bolt

I own an a boilt in a 300 wsm and an x bolt in a 270 wsm.as far as the guns handle and shoot I really cant tell much of a difference to be honest with you. I really dont care about being able to open my bolt with the rifle on safety so that feature doesnt really matter to me. Now if anyone knows where you can get spare magazines that would be alright.

You can try the browning part phone line as well.
