    Went shooting yesterday with my son and his new XL7 30-06 with camo stock and Burris 3x9x50 scope. Very nice handling, slick operating, light weight, moderate recoil and best of all in less than 10 shots he (we) were on target at 300 yds. We were shooting off a card table with a blanket rolled up for a rest so no effort at 'groups' but he is confident with it and next Saturday will be our first chance at a field test on mule deer.

    I was quite impressed.

    Yep, good shooting. Have a XL7 in 25-06 and I too have been impressed with mine at range. Very accurate rifle.
