I dont know the 40xb. Is it a new gun from rem?

No. It's been available from Remington's Custom Shop for many years. It is a heavy barrel, bolt action target/varmint rifle. All of mine are single-shot actions. :D

sounds like a buitiful gun. I wish I had taken better care of mine. Was only built 1 year by Remington. Still shoots great and has been a fav to hunt with

Seven of the ones that I have look like the following:

One other I have looks like this:

And the last one that I have has a Fajen thumbhole stock that unfortunately has a floorplate on it! Kind of dumb considering the rifle is a single shot .25-06 Remington!! :cuss:

Considering the fact that the factory ammunition is under powered for the caliber in modern bolt action rifles, do you load over the maximum listed in the reloading manuals?

I never load them over recommended levels. I have a couple buddies that start at 100% and go up. There thinking is manuals show 10-20% under max for legal resons. I dont think adding a couple extra tenths is going to be unsafe, however it is unneeded wear and tear on valuable guns.
Being a hunter I load for acuracy and speed. The knock down is provided by a quality bullet.
