You'll definitely be happy with a Browning. The X-Bolt has a lot of cool features on it that you will be impressed with. I had a Stainless A-Bolt that was a tack driver. You'll really like the 60 degree bolt throw and the top tang safety. The only reason I got rid of mine is it was a pre-BOSS and they couldn't install a BOSS system on it. I just haven't gotten around to replacing it yet. I have a Browning BAR with the BOSS and it is a really nice system.
Now for me, I would get the Medallion. There isn't anything like the Browning blueing. It's deep and highly polished...very nice! I also like the contrasting forend tip and pistol grip cap with the gloss stock as it really sets it off. The engraving is also a nice touch. IMHO, everytime you uncase the Medallion, you'll gonna go "WOW". I don't see that happening with a Hunter. It's too bad they don't offer a Hunter with a wood upgrade in the same price range of the Medallion. A nicely figured walnut stock on a Hunter would change my view on this.
Now the problem with a deeply blued gun is finding a scope that matches. I use Leupold scopes and anything over a 3.5-10x50mm is not offered in a gloss finish. This is the same with most scope manufacturers. Although this power is perfectly acceptable, sometimes it's nice having the extra "oomph" of a 4.5-14 powered scope. This is especially true if you're going to do any long range shooting. Although a matte scope doesn't look bad on a polished blued gun, it doesn't look as good as a gloss scope. Of course, I like my things to match and this may not bother you at all. I am kind of anal about that LOL!
