What is a good solid bolt action that is very fun to shoot can kill medium game and is not .22
Savage AXIS XP 308 W/SCP $307.00 SHIPS FREE
Savage AXIS XP 270 W/SCP $302.00 SHIPS FREE
Do those come in wood for the same price?
I really like my winchester model 70, no other bolt gun I've held has as smooth an action, but a remington 700, savage model 11, or Howa 1500 are all good guns
I like the 243.
Im a convert to the mosin nagant 91/30. 80-120$ super cheap plinking ammo with hunting loads available.
I was thinking of a browning .243 but I can't find one in my price range 300-400$
I have 4 Mosins also. Great rifles for the $$$
Like are the misons old mil surplus or new models ?

The reason I've decided to go with the Mosin 91/30 is the price vs. power. Until I have more to invest in a better bolt action, I'm going to start with a Mosin.
Then, in that family, it becomes really easy to spend 3x the money for a rifle that isn't at all 3x better.
For $120 bucks and ammo that still lives around .25c a round, it is REALLY hard to beat.
But are the misions Mil surplus is what I want to know and I think I have one it's an m44 but the caliber is scratched off of it and I can't tell
Post a pic of it, we should be able to tell you if its a M44 or not.
Mosin 91/30 are milsurp but most are brandnew as the soviets made hundreds of millions and put em into storage where they sat for decades before being sold as surplus.
With decent ammo they are easily moa shooters. There isnt a single gun in double or even triple their price range that is more durable or can outshoot one.
this may help
The Russian rifle known as the "Rifle Model 1891/30" (vintovka obrazets 1891/30 goda) or what we commonly call in mil-surp speak - the Mosin-Nagant 91/30 rifle was adopted by the Soviet Army in 1930. The 1891/30 was an improved version of the Russian Model 1891 infantry rifle that was designed by Russian Army Captain Sergei Ivanovich Mosin, with major design contributions from Belgian arms designer Leon Nagant. It was carried during WWI, the Russian Revolution, and by the end of WWII over 17,000,000 1891/30 rifles had been manufactured and used in defense of Mother Russia. The 1891/30 was the main battle rifle used by the communist forces in Korea against the UN Allies and was found on many North Vietnamese during the Vietnam war.
The most commonly found Mosin-Nagant 1891/30 rifles were manufactured in either the Izhevsk and Tula Arsenals, although records show the rifle was made at many arsenals in Russia.
Izhevsk (arsenal mark: triangle w/upright arrow inside)
Tula (arsenal mark: star w/upright arrow inside)
Cartridge: 7.62 X 54mmR
Like the others have said, I would go with a Mosin Nagant. It's cheap, reliable, powerful, accurate, rugger, and so on. I hunt with my PU scoped Mosin Nagant or my Ex Sniper Mosin Nagant.
No I know it's an m44 the side it's on the side of the gun and what caliber are m44 I think they are 7.62x54r aren't they
They're the same caliber, 7.62x54r.
Are there new models of the mison nagant like with synthetic stocks etc
