Browning X bolt? i can choose any caliber, what say you HT?
The HT faithful would say 7mm-08
@mtmuley will say 300RUM, I think.
Just a quick gut check before I call Browning.

What's the intended purpose and what else do you have?

I have a 300PRC and 6.5CM
I am asking what if YOU guys won it.
I deer, antelope, elk, oryx, etc hunt.
Would love to shoot a sheep, moose, bison, bear if I could ever draw. i think those are covered by the 300PRC.
i honestly thought about a 22-250 for varmints in MT when I visit family. Not a lot of use for a 22-250 in upstate SC.

I don't have much need for anything offered in that lineup so I'd go 6.5PRC, 300PRC, or 300WinMag then sell it so I can get started in a 6GT or 6 Dasher build. I'm aware they have 6 Creedmoor but I don't want that one.

If you need another rifle it looks like you have some room in a 22 caliber rifle. Maybe they offer one with a faster twist so you could load one of the heavy 22 bullets.

Looking at their current lineup of cartridges, I soon realized that I have most of them, or of similar performance.

I think it would be pretty hard to pass up a SS 30-06 as a do-all loaner. A SS 375 would be my second choice, or a 7-08 for the kids.
