New X-bolt Hells Canyon Speed all set up
« on: May 08, 2021, 04:10:21 PM »
New X-bolt Hells Canyon in 270 Win all set up and ready to shoot. I always need to add about 3/4Ē to my rifles to get my length of pull correct. While looking into ordering a limb saver pad I learned the Nitro grind to fit butt pad is large enough I could get the extra length without a spacer. Iím using a Vari-X 3 3.5-10 that Iíve had forever mounted with Talley Light weight rings. I havenít weighed the setup, but it sure points naturally. Now to break it in and start doing some shooting. Fortunately Iíve had good luck finding ammo lately. Eventually I may put a different scope on, but plan to stay with the moderate size. I think this is going to be a sweet hunting rifle.

on my old Ď06.

Whatís the barrel length not including the muzzle brake?

Personally Iíll never put another Leupold scope on my rifles that is capable of dialing for  range.

22Ē, this is an old scope (first I ever bought in the early Ď90ís) no adjustment turrets

That's a great rifle with a scope that shouldn't give you any issue. I see lots of success in your future.

I'd like one in 280 AI

I got the X Bolt Max Long Range in 7mm last year.  Love it.  I wanted to wait for the HC version, but after 6 months I gave up and bought the standard version (I wanted it in time to shoot it before hunting season). 
Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes.  That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

It took awhile to find this one, but it probably helped that I wanted a 270

That's a great looking rifle!
What ammo are you planning on using for hunting with it?

Thatís a good question. Iíve had some success finding 270 ammo lately and have some Hornady Superperformance with the 130 grain SST,Hornady American Whitetail with 130 grain  Interlocks and a couple boxes of 150 grain Winchester Super X and Remington Core-Lokt.
I suspect Iíll settle on something in the 130-135 grain range. My Dadís A-bolt shoots the Remington with the Swift Scirocco like a laser beam, so theyíre under consideration also.
My experience with 270ís (mostly Brownings) is theyíre a no drama, consistent shooter. Thatís really what pulled me such a classic with all the cool new calibers out there.
