Browning X-Bolt Western Hunter - ATACS AU - 28 Nosler - Limited Edition:

Top tier accuracy gives confidence at longer distances. Not every kind of hunting and every kind of hunter demands or needs the kind of accuracy and performance offered by this rifle. But if you do, the entire package is configured to provide a top level hunting experience when you know there is a chance you will need to reach out beyond 200 or even 300 yards -- distances very common in western big game and varmint hunting. And make no mistake, this rifle, when fitted with good optics and partnered with the right ammo and the right shooter, can reach way beyond this. It is a 1000 yard capable rifle. And as far as we, the hunters, are concerned, that kind of distance may not be relevant for most hunting, but it does give us total confidence at hunting ranges where we still have bullet and load effectiveness on game animals..

The list of features below includes many of the proven X-Bolt features plus the extras that make this rifle so special. As a Limited availability rifle, it has a limited production run and the potential for any future runs is uncertain. So, if you like what you see, check this rifle out.

28 Nosler

The 28 Nosler is a 7mm (.284) caliber, rebated-rim centerfire rifle cartridge designed by Nosler. Introduced in 2015 and approved by SAAMI on January 19, 2015. The 28 Nosler is based on the 26 Nosler which was released in 2014. The 28 Nosler shares the same overall cartridge length (3.340) as the 26 Nosler which allows it to be chambered in standard-length action. This feature helps weight-conscious sportsmen to lighten their load before venturing into the backcountry. The cases overall length also aid in quick follow-up shots, since the bolt throw is shorter than on a magnum action.

The name 28 Nosler refers to the first two digits in the caliber (0.284) of the bullets that the cartridge fires and the name of the company which created it.

The 28 Nosler cartridge case can be formed by necking-up or expanding the neck of a 26 Nosler case to 7mm (.284) diameter. The cartridge case for both the 26 and 28 Nosler is based on the 404 Jeffrey case
