Stick with the big names and models that have been around, Remington 700, Winchester M70, Ruger Hawkeye M77, Browning A-Bolt, X Bolt, Most any Savage Model, Thompson Center ICON, Mossberg has a couple of newer models, CZ's are good too.....I presume you were considering bolt-action.

edit:...oops...this is the semi-auto forum...guess a Browning BAR would be my choice.

For a traditional bolt action, Remington 700 - there are several versions to choose from. I'm partial to stainless steel. Their fluted stainless barrel is beautiful and the Remington wood is great.



For a non-traditional action, consider a Browning BLR, a lever operated bolt action. This is a fun gun to shoot and looks great.



I personally can't get the same MOA groupings with the BLR than I can get with the Remington 700, but the Browning BLR is still fairly tight and plenty good for hunting. Cool features of the BLR are the box magazine and the ability to rack and release a followup round much faster than with the 700.

Savage and Remington have the best factory barrels these days. If you plan to do any work or "mods" to your rifle pick Remington 700 or Savage. I have a 700 and a Savage 110 with the accutrigger and accustock. With a Leupold Mark 4 mounted on it, once we figured out the dope for it we shot it out to 950yds hitting 18" plates with Hornady ammo. At 200 I shot a 1.68" 3 round group after zeroing right out of the box. Also some 700's just had their triggers recalled. The old triggers were nice, the new ones aren't as crisp. I have heard the savage axiom you can get at walmart for under 400 is pretty good. I have not seen or shot it though.

700's from around 2006 have a very heavy trigger pull. I have never measured it, but 8 or 10 pounds would not surprise me.

30-06 is a 30-06... same power(unless you want start getting into barrel length, twist rate and ammo used for small power advantage/disadvantages) depends on what model, some remingtons are poorly made, take the polymer box magazine fed one you find at walmart. That rifle should have never been made. Get a quality rifle that will last to give to your kids. That way you know it will at least last long enough for you to use it.
