Hey all, I've been thinking about getting another bolt action rifle. I've got a nice hunting rifle ( Stainless Ruger with a big scope and everything), but I want something that I can throw on my back and carry around the farm and not worry about scratching it or tearing it up. I want it to be cheap and cheap to shoot. I'd like it to be able to shoot about 5 inches or less at 100yrds, even if I can't make it happen at first. I want open sights or maybe peep sights and a caliber that will carry at least 200yrds. I was thinking of an old Russian surplus rifle I saw at a show for about $120. It shot 7.65x54 and was ridiculously long. Does anyone know anything about the 7.65x54 round? I know that it's cheap to shoot if you go with surplus ammo. Do you think this would fit the bill, or should I search for a cheap old 30-06 and pay about twice as much for "cheap" ammo? I'll mostly be playing around with this rifle, shooting from offhand a lot, from a bench, and from a prone position. Thanks for any input, guys and gals.
