I have the Browning X-Bolt in 375H&H, not the A-Bolt.

I have it in the Stainless Stalker configuration. It's really nice, great shooter. I have only fired a handful of rounds though it. Ammo ranging from 235 grain to 300 grain. I am contemplating selling. to partially fund my next hunt. :unsure:

Stumbled upon this thread and saw that you said you have an A bolt in .375 h&h. How is the weight of the A bolt for that caliber?
My apologies I just saw you answered my question in a previous thread! Never mind!

Quite light for my taste, I gave it to a young man that is saving up for his first trip to RSA. It shot very good, and recoil wasn't bad for such a light rifle with a wood stock. He loves the rifle and it will be used for hunting like it should. I probably would have never used it. I'm not 375 poor by any means so I'll survive without her.

Awesome! I have been keeping my eye on them because of the affordability aspect. I have that, a savage brush gun and of course my first choice the CZ in my sights. It's the monetary aspect that gets ya ;) haha
Thanks for the info!

I own numerous X Bolts. Was a Remington 700 fan until they turned to junk. X Bolts have a great adjustable trigger. The clip is the best in the business. Stock design helps a lot with recoil and accuracy is excellent.

It's a solid rifle. Browning is one of the few companies that manufacture quality firearms. Mine is the Stainless stalker chambered in 375 H&H. I had my gunsmith reduce the barrel length from 24 to 21 inches. I installed a rear XS ghost ring sight and a fiber optic front sight. This reduced the weight of the rifle to approximately 6.5 pounds.

I hunt semi-dangerous game alone and this is one of my tools in the box to use.

I do not know where this video was posted, but I would very much like to see it.

Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
