The X-Bolt Stalker LR is a great rifle choice for hunting in all weather conditions, as the stock is made from durable, composite material that can take a beating. It is textured for a secure grip from forearm to pistol grip, and has a comfortable palm swell. This long-range model also includes an adjustable comb system that makes it easy to place your eye in correct scope alignment with larger, long-range optics.
