I won a Browning rifle today



A X-Bolt, 25-06.

Bought the raffle tickets (3 for $10) to help out a foundation that gets children involved in hunting and shooting sports.

Anybody know what these retail for?

As much as I would love to keep the gun, I really could use some extra cash right now, and I had a guy offer me $500 cash for it. How much of a low ball offer was that? I've got no problem giving the guy a good deal, but I also don't wanna "give it away"

There's one in the same caliber on GunBroker right now for about $770, so I'd say it was a pretty serious lowball.

I think I'll tell the guy $600. Like I said, I have no problem giving a good deal on it, and could use the cash right now.

It's a shame you have to get rid of it, that's really a very nice rifle and a very potent caliber up to really anything up to 700 lbs or so with the right load.. I think $600 would be a really quick sale, those rifles are anywhere from upper 7's to nearly $900 new I think... Maybe I'm wrong on that...

I would say $650-$700 would be a good deal.

Sell it for $700 and donate $100 back to the charity. And that advice is worth exactly what you paid for it.

I knew someone back in the 80's that used 25-06 for elk hunting......and, he took a bull every year that I knew him.....about ten, or so. The 25-06 is not a popular choice, and some will say it's not good enough for elk hunting......but, I'm just relaying what I know about it. (I've never owned a rifle chambered for this cartridge.)

Hogship, with the right bullet (Nosler part, Barnes x, Scirocco, Accubond, etc) that is made for weight retention and a competent rifleman at reasonable distances it should put elk on the ground in good humane fashion... We had one in circulation quite a few years ago, but had trouble keeping bullets together and a few or more 200 lbs deer run off and get away which made us sick to our stomach... When we began loading rounds like I mentioned and it made an obvious difference in killing power.. 200-300 lbs. hogs @ 300+ yards would many times just wilt at the hit... We never recovered another bullet after changing loads regardless of distance or shot angle... Never recovered a another bullet and never lost another animal after that, with most not making it out of the shooting lane...
