BullShooter’s Reviews: Winchester’s XPR Stealth SR (Suppressor Ready)

Winchester’s XPR Stealth SR (suppressor ready) is a perfect do-all rifle from truck to treestand. It’s a handy 6 lb., 8 oz., 36.5-inch composite-stocked rifle owning a 16.5-inch barrel that’s threaded (5/8×24) for a can. Other features that make it perfect for pig hunting at night include its compact stock, Permacote-anodized matte finish that resists rust and glare; a trigger that’s as crisp as burned bacon, and its simple, right-side receiver-mounted safety that’s my favorite in all the rifle world. A lengthy rail accommodates any optic you see fit. But perhaps most exciting is the caliber in which I’d choose it in. Sure, you can opt for anything from 223, 6.5 Creed, 7mm-08 Rem. (has a more perfect round ever been created for hogs and deer?) .308 Win. (tested here) on up to .300 WSM, but I’d choose Winchester’s new .350 Legend cartridge that fires a 150-grain PowerPoint bullet at 2325 fps for 1800 ft.-lbs. ME. What’s better? This versatile, close-range pork chop procurer is priced right at around  $550. BOOM!

At an early age Jeff was kicked in the face by an exposed hammer shotgun, stunting his growth but also sparking a passion for guns, hunting and the outdoors. Since the crack of that old gun, he's traveled the world, hunting, shooting and writing for national outdoor magazines. His Youtube page adds a bit of practicality to tacticality, dispels hunting and shooting myths, gives fairly honest reviews of guns and gear because he's not beholden to anyone, and offers real-world based tips--that might well be wrong. Rest assured, Jeff is no Navy SEAL, although he stayed at a Holiday Inn once in San Diego.
