If you are looking for a SHTF type gun in an accurate bolt action platform i would look into a Mosin Nagant 91/30 or M44 carbine. Simple, reliable, & it'll take just about any abuse you can throw at it. Surplus ammo is dirt cheap and new non corrosive stuff is very reasonably priced, last time i bought ammo for my gun at big 5 it was about $12 for a box of 20. 7.62x54R has about the same power as .308 too. Might not be everyone cup of tea for SHTF/EOTWAWKI but someone has to pimp the Mosins!
