Browning X-Bolt Pro .28 Nosler & Kite KSP HD2 2.5-15X56

By Hayden Sturgeon

With custom rifles being the craze these days rifle manufacturers need to be working hard to out-stage their competitors and build something off the shelf that not only catches the hunter’s eye, but also meets the high expectations that come with a semi-custom rifle. 


Browning’s new X-Bolt Pro has all the specs - but will it shoot as good as it looks? After reviewing the Hell’s Canyon model in .300WSM back in NZG&H’s September/October issue #168 it was a pleasant surprise when Cameron Sports (the Browning agents for NZ) asked me to review the X-Bolt Pro in my favourite all-time calibre, the .28 Nosler.
