Whitetail Journal Names Winchester XPR as One of the Best Deer Rifles of 2017.


As a follow-up to products displayed at the 2017 SHOT Show, the Whitetail Journal’s Hilary Dyer published her top picks in deer rifles for 2017. First on her list was the Winchester XPR bolt action.

“The budget-friendly XPR was on our best deer rifles of 2015 list when it debuted, and now in its third year, the gun is available in some new configurations: the Hunter and Hunter Compact models,” noted Dyer. “The XPR’s no-creep, no-take-up M.O.A. trigger gives you precise control, while features like a free-floated chrome-moly steel barrel and recessed target-style crown offer accuracy and wear-resistance.”

“The (XPR) Hunter version comes in either Mountain Country Range or Mossy Oak Break-Up Country camo, in 11 calibers from .243 up to .338 Win Mag.,” Dyer concluded. “The Hunter Compact, available in Break-Up Country, comes in six calibers (.243 up to .325 WSM), and is almost 3 inches shorter than its full-sized counterpart — the length savings come from taking 2 inches off the barrel and ¾-inch off the length of pull.”

There ais a bevy of XPRs to meet any taste, in a wide spectrum of calibers. Stop by your local Winchester Repeating Arms dealer today and see what all the buzz is about. LEARN MORE ABOUT THE ADVANTAGES OF THE WINCHESTER XPR.
