I would choose a mossberg mvp since it can use any ar15 magazine including drum mags.

Probably a Ruger Gunsite or just about any lever-gun.

Bolt action - no way - lever action, there are many options but I'd probably go with a Marlin 1894.

Browning lever action with box mag. Or hope another lever gun could be developed with a box mag. Fast reloads and unloading are the big speed weaknesses of the lever gun.

You need to watch some cas events...

Friends of mine have these pvc tubes with one end cut in a slant full of ammo. Push stick in one end loads on par with box magazines for speed.

I would prolly take a 1903 springfield. Extremely smooth action control feed with magazine cutoff that lets you single load while keeping a full mag ready. Stripper clips work the best of all military bolt guns. If the Enfield wasn't a cock on close action and the bolt was better designed it would be my number one.

If I thought I would need an optic I would take the mosin 91/30 sniper lets you use open sights and optic same time. The bdc on the pu scope works damn well with a big field of view mount returns to zero and its rugged. No other bolt gun can do that
