Re: Best Military Bolt action of all time?
I will go with the little known bastard child of the military arms as well the 1917 it was a beast of an action strong as an ox. I have a 308 custom built on one. It started as a USMC battle rifle then because a very nice looking 375 H&H mag rifle to go to Africa. Grandfather never made it over so he re barreled into a 308. Now that is a versital action. I haven't found the best load yet but the worst prints 1/2" at 100 yards for 5 shots. I got that from 135gr SMK, 155gr SMK, 168gr SMK, 168gr A-Max and 155gr Interbonds. So she sure is consistent. My deer rifle is a Remington model 30 express (Exact same action)
