Isn't that a little self defeating? If semi-autos don't exist, there would be no AR-15 mags, because the AR platform would not exist.
On that line of thought, Ruger made a bolt action only version of the mini 14. I love straight pull bolts, however by my logic, not an option.
I would have to say a Ruger gunsite scout. Chamberd in .308, it would also fire the larger NATO standard 7.62X51 MM ammo. how often would I use the rifle? Depends on how many, how far, and how many crossbow bolts I have with me. The sound of the rifle shots tends to give away your location, and body armor is designed for shrapnel and bullets. Most broadheads can go right through it.
