The rifles above are some good recommendations. If you are cruising the used racks at a shop, sometimes caliber is the key to a better price for the same model of rifle. There are allot of trade ins' in .257 Roberts lately, must be the short mag craze that is hitting up here. By far my favorite caliber and rifle combo is a Husqvarna 1600 in 6.5x55. There are U.S. made bolt guns that can be found in this caliber for much less then there standard caliber brothers, used that is. Cost of shooting is a real big factor to me, so I hand load, but I will buy loaded ammo if it works out cheaper, and sometimes it does. I ordered 2 boxes of 6.5x55 and 2, 8x57 because they were 12.95 shipped per box a couple of months ago. .65 a round purchased compared to .58 to .62 to hand roll. plus I got some new brass out of the deal.
Surplus rifles can be hit or miss as far as real accuracy. A 91/30 is a great rifle, but 4" groups are the norm w/ military light ball ammo (147..150gr). When you jump up to heavy ball(179..182gr) the groups shrink, not so much because of the bullet weight, but because of the design and construction of the bullet. They also have a tendancy to shoot high. Commercail hunting ammo is more accurate, but also more expensive to purchase.
The Swedish M96 or M38 are by far more refined and accurate as is the K31 Swiss. Both rifles will do exactly what you are looking for w/ the K31 being easier to scope w/ a St. Marie side mount. It requires no alterations to the rifle and you can still use iron sights by looking under the scope. I sold the scope and base for mine, the rifle is very accurate w/ irons alone. Power for the 7.5x55 cartridge is just below a .308/ 7.62x51.
