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
