The Winchester XPR is another fine bolt action rifle that will not break the bank. I am addicted to 308 bolt action rifles and I have several different brands and like all of them. The XPR is very accurate, great fit and finish, and manageable recoil. The Hawke 4X12X40 scope has a blue and red illuminated reticle and is a great buy. I am posting a Winchester Company video celebrating there 150th anniversary. I found it quite interesting as the video takes us through time. They are obviously advertising the company. Winchester survived two of the biggest blunders that any other manufacturer would have probably gone under. The first mistake was not willing to compensate Benjamin Henry who developed the company’s repeating rifle, so he quit and started his own company. The second mistake was breaking ties with John Browning who is responsible for designing some of the greatest weapons in history that we are still using today.
