I have a M1917. Perhaps the best because it is chambered in .30 caliber.

It'll put the Sierra Pro Hunter 180gn pills into a 2" group at 100yds if I'm doing my bit.
I reload the same bullets for my jungle carbine with good results

Little known fact.... The P14/M1917 Doesnt use the Enfield system, its a Mauser type action...

The only part that is Mauser is the front locking lugs, it still uses the cock on closing design making it probably the smoothest, fastest, & strongest bolt action ever built, bar none..............

I donno..
I agree with the Krag as the smoothest.. Every Krag ive ever held has had the easiest bolt to manipulate...
and the Arisaka Type 38 is the strongest (Col. Hatcher proved that)
