Could a lightweight bolt-action be the perfect backcountry hunting rifle for you?

When you’re hunting and hiking in the backcountry, having the right equipment at your side is paramount to your trip going smoothly. You could have a nice rifle already, but it may be too heavy to carry comfortably or have far too much power for whatever game you’re trying to take down. The Browning X-Bolt offers a lightweight 6.5-lb frame, with a simple snap-lock bi-pod, a medium power 2-7×33 Leupold scope which cuts down on weight, and synthetic body and stock to ensure the weather won’t damage your rifle. It’s chambered for 6.5 Creedmoor, which offers plenty of power without edging into your accuracy. If you’re looking for a better, more durable shooting platform for your backcountry stalks, this is the way to go.
