The Browning X-Bolt has been on the market for close to 10 years now and the semi-custom variant of the X-Bolt Pro was introduced back in 2017. Now Browning has unveiled a newer iteration for 2019 with the X-Bolt Pro Long Range! This new offering boasts a muzzle brake, Burnt Bronze Cerakote finish and a host of other high quality features. The X-Bolt Pro Long Range looks to meld the strength of stalwart hunting calibers in a long-range, accurate package.
To begin when this rifle is introduced in 2019, there will be an essential list of 8 calibers available for consumers. As mentioned earlier, these calibers need to thump and they need to remain accurate over long distances. Those calibers are:

- 6.5 Creedmoor
- 26 Nosler
- .270 WSM
- 7mm Rem Mag
- 28 Nosler
- .300 WSM

Depending on the caliber you land on, the MSRP varies between $2,159 – $2,229. All of these offerings will feature a 26″ barrel and weigh roughly 7 Lbs 3 Oz – 7 Lbs 8 Oz.
