Browning could not place the RMEF name on this X-Bolt if it was not the real deal. You can be sure it is! Every aspect is perfectly configured and ready to go -- just add your choice of a quality scope and a quality sling. We realize that you may not be interested in this rifle if you are not a member of the RMEF. On the other hand, if you are new to elk hunting and buy this rifle you will instantly have the confidence that it is a perfectly configured setup. One that you can have total confidence in.

Excellent dimensions all around.

The RMEF X-Bolt Special Hunter features a raised cheekpiece comb which you can see in the profile above. Why a raised comb? This helps to direct recoil into the shoulder area and gets the shooter's line-of-sight lined quickly with the scope. It is a feature that seasoned hunters look for in a high-powered rifle.

A beautiful level of finish.

The Special Hunter features a fine low-luster bluing on the barrel and receiver with a satin-finished Walnut stock. It also bears the logo of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation on the grip cap. This is a tribute to the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation -- and a percentage of sales from this rifle goes to help support habitat, range, health and studies of elk throughout the United States. This is a worthy cause, supported by worthy firearms and true hunters.

All the best X-Bolt features too.

Top tang safety, detachable Rotary magazine, X-Lock scope mounting, Bolt Unlock Button, Infex Technology Recoil Pad, target type recessed muzzle Crown . . . this rifle has everything that has made the X-Bolt famous and more.



  • Button-Rifled barrel is triple checked for quality and individually hand chambered and air gauged to ensure consistency and accuracy.


  • The target Crown enables the uniform release of gas as the bullet exits the barrel, preventing a shift in trajectory. The Crown is recessed to protect it from accidental damage that degrades accuracy.


  • Free floated barrel eliminates contact interference from the fore-end, enabling the superior barrel craftsmanship to perform consistently and accurately.


  • Drilled and tapped for X-Lock scope mounts that use four screws for each base to provide a rock solid optic platform.


  • Adjustable Feather Trigger minimizes the "human factor" by eliminating creep and take-up — providing a crisp trigger pull that "breaks like glass."


  • Low profile action allows you to mount the scope extremely close to the center of the bore to minimize the offset between point of aim and Point of Impact.


  • 60° bolt lift keeps the thumb and fingers clear of the scope when cycling the action and allows the bolt to be operated in a smoother/quicker motion.


  • Top-tang safety offers easy accessibility without removing your firing hand from the stock. The shooter can quickly manipulate the safety, or verify the position of the safety, without losing your sight picture or cheek weld.


  • Detachable Rotary magazine is built from tough polymer and is designed to stop forward movement of the cartridge by contacting the shoulder of the case rather than the tip of the projectile. This prevents bullet tip deformation and recoil induced bullet seating depth change.



  • Innovative Inflex Technology recoil pad uses directional deflection to pull the stock down and away from the face to reduce perceived recoil.


  • Durable low-luster blued finish reduces reflective glare


  • The high grade Walnut stock with detailed checkering provides classic good looks.


  • A satin gloss finish provides protection and enhances the natural beauty of the hardwood.


  • The raised cheek piece helps to direct recoil into the shoulder area and quickly puts the shooter's line of sight in alignment with the scope
