Best Bolt Action

I am on a roll here. Now, I am sure this one should cause a stir. There are many, many good bolt guns out there. As you may surmise by the other polls, I am a Ruger guy. Including bolt guns. Tell you why. Mauser type extractor, Winchester Model 70 type safety, integral scope mounts that do not shoot loose, and steel scope rings. What say you?

Re: Best Bolt Action

They're all pretty good, but I've always loved the 700's.

Re: Best Bolt Action

Nothing wrong with any of them,Ruger does have the best package over all for the money. Sako is why over priced for me. Savage are great tact drivers I have several of them. But for me hands down I like the Remingtons. I also have more Rugers than any other bolt guns I have. Main reason cost and what you get for your buck. I am really interest in the new box mag rifle Ruger has come out with, sure is a sweet looking rifle.

Re: Best Bolt Action

I like them all, but I voted for ruger. I like the safety, the mauser like extractor, and the scope rings. The ruger is a tough rifle that works well for me as a hunter and general outdoorsman. If I get into target shooting competitions (looks fun) I'd probably go for a remington or savage.

Re: Best Bolt Action

For dangerous game the positive feed guns are best . For target and long range shooting Remington push feed has a very fast lock time and the choice of over 95% of the top shooter in the USA using a off the shelf gun .. For deer size game under 200 yds any cheap gun is just find .....

Re: Best Bolt Action

I voted Ruger because I only have one bolt action, a Ruger in 30-06. I have not shot that many other bolt actions, as I prefer lever guns in general, but I sure do like this MK!!

Re: Best Bolt Action

I voted Savage because that's the only bolt gun I have, and it's very accurate. My Rugers are #1's, and both they and my Savage have the tang safety, which I really like. All of my centerfires are single shot rifles.

Re: Best Bolt Action

I'm one of the 5 people that voted Remington. They were pretty well represented in poll in 2nd place.

Re: Best Bolt Action

Well the ones that voted for sako won't even commit as to why they voted for them. Guess that says alot for them or really nothing at all.

Re: Best Bolt Action

I'm using a Browning A bolt in 308 WIN. At 200 yrds. it's dead on. (2" pattern with 5 shots - bench shots). I Shot 30 rounds, removing copper between each round for the break-in to 'season' the barrel.

I voted Sako because all that I have handled (I don't own one) the action was like butter. I've never shot one although I do own all the other brands listed and there is nothing wrong with any but that Sako just seemed nicer than even my A-Bolt. My M-77 is the most accurate of those I own but only by a little.

I tried to strike a deal a few years ago on a used Sako in 300 Win Mag and the dealer would not come off $800 so I told him if it was that valuable he better hang on to it.

5 inch spread at 200 yards, I would thinking the Browning could do better than that. But then I don't set a target out at 200 yards, by the time I got back to shoot at the target in might burn up in this heat here in Texas. Terry Your right there about the price of a Sako, lordy they are sure proud of them. I am sure they field dress and cut the game up for you with one shot. They should for that price lol. Ya know I can remember and of course this is a was's back too that a Sako wouldn't bring 130.00 in the early 70's.

I had one in a lever gun shot in cowboy match's never shot it any future than 50 yards. I am thinking you should be able to hit at 100 yards but I wonder would it take a deer size game at that range?

With a 180 gr that comes out of the pipe at a respectable velocity should do the job at 100 yards.
