I first reviewed a Winchester XPR way back in issue #164 of NZG&H. That particular gun was chambered in .243 Win, and throughout my time with that rifle I carried it around the hills with trips to the Boyd Hut in the Kawekas and a red deer mission in the Kaimais, as well as the usual range time.

 

Upon receiving the rifle, this review was shaping up to be much the same. I planned on hitting the range straight away and then get out chasing the local fallow around the Te Puke hills.
