Remington 700, Mosin Nagant, 1903 Springfield, Browing X bolt. Really depends on your cup of tea, the 700 has a good trigger and a lot of parts on the market, you can really turn it into a tactical rifle if you want there are tons of extra parts for the rifle. It really just depends on what your going to us it for, like for cayote hunting you can get a bipod and a exstended mag, heavy barrel and all that jazz or if your just a plinker you can get a heavy barrel and a bipod.

different strokes for different folks.

Hi!! Welcome to the forum. Be sure to hit the intro section so we know a bit about you and your interests.

Not knowing you intentions for this bolt gun, it is hard to say. For just plain learning some marksmanship, I'd go the .22lr route and shoot often. The skills learned there will carry over to bigger calibers.

If you are an experienced shooter and are looking for an all around gun, and it seems money is as issue as you are saving for it, I'd go .308 or .30-06. The simple reason is the ammo is cheaper than most other choices.

For a bargain .22 LR bolt gun, Savage makes a ~$200 rifle that shoots well enough to learn the basics. The choices for larger caliber bolt guns are galactic. Many old, beat up, ex-service rifles are capable of another lifetime of service, hunting north American game.

Good news is, there are a ton of options for you. NEVER over look used guns. Many are experienced hunting rifles with little use.

Of the two I like the Weatherby Vangard. Every one I've owned has been a good shooter. What is it chambered in?
