Title: Wanting to order a Browning X-bolt Hell's Canyon speed,trouble locating-success!
Post by: Westside88 on March 08, 2021, 04:44:22 PM
I thought I'd ask on here in case someone has a tip on who might be a good shop to order from. I'm looking to order a Browning X-bolt Hell's Canyon speed in 270 Win. I've talked to several local dealers( Southwest WA) and they really don't know when/if they'll be able to get one. There are two types of camo they use for the stock A-tacs AU and A-tacs TDX. I'd prefer the TDX, but I've yet to actually find it in any caliber. It looks like they become available on Cabela's website occasionally, but they don't even list the camo pattern I'm seeking.
I know many guns are tough to come by now. What I'm not sure of is if that pattern just isn't as common. If anyone has seen one in a shop please let me know. Thanks

Iíll keep an eye out on Sportsmans Hillsboro theyíve been getting quite a few hells canyons in, but .270 is kinda a rare bird anymore.   6.5 CM, 300 WSM/7mm, 300 PRC seem to cover the spectrum now from small - med - large.

There are some in gunbrokers but not in the camo you want.

Thanks, yeah that seems to be my thing "vintage". 6.5 probably would be fine since it has a 22" barrel, which is really what I'm after, I have a Magnum with a 26" barrel and looking for a more compact, somewhat light rifle

thank you, I've been checking there once in awhile. I'll be fine if it takes awhile.

I went through the same search for about a month before I found one in 7mm-08. Finally found it at Grice Gun Shop in Pennsylvania. Bought it and had it shipped to a local FFL. I just searched the internet daily until I found it. Same experience, I could find 6.5 creedmoors easily but thatís the popular caliber these days. At the time I put myself on every email list I could find to notify me when it came in stock. Still havenít received any emails so you could be in for an extended search. Good luck!

you may be in the same boat I was when I waited for a 10 gauge.  It came in two months late.  My bet would be the HC Speed is behind schedule from overseas.  There's none in the SW system.  Might be some at some remote store but none that could be ordered.

I think youíre probably right. Especially the camo pattern Iím after which was added in 2020. Fortunately this is a want and not a need so Iíll be patient and keep watching

We will have pretty similar guns! Canít help with locating yours, I ordered my vanguard from weatherby and went 270. Itís like shooting a 22 with the break on it, itís amazing and is a tack driver. Hope you find one soon  :tup:

I ordered a 270wsm from sportsmans wharehouse last summer.  Ordered it online and had it delivered to local store.

You were able to do that because the gun was in stock at the SW distribution center.  For the HC Speed SW distribution center does not have any.

I've been watching the online availability for a few stores. This week Bass Pro/Cabela's showed the ability to order for delivery to the store. Hopefully it works out, I got a confirmation #

My Bass Pro order came through! I initially was looking for the TDX camo, but decided AU looked like a good pattern and would be easier to match the scope if I go that direction. Iím happy with the decision and canít wait to shoot this thing! Also lucked into some ammo this week so I just need to order scope mounts and a spare magazine. I wanted to get the rifle in hand first

Talley light weight one piece mounts are great and match the barrel color.
