I want to add to my group. I’ll not list what I have, in order to not influence a recommendation.
Bolt action, obviously.
Not picky on ammo.
Works even if dirty.
Reasonably accurate, no need to drive nails at 1,000 yards.
Can be field stripped enough to be cleaned.
No history of the model having unsafe malfunctions.
No interest in anything but 30-06.
Essentially an all around go-to gun.
Edit: External Magazine required.
In response to questions if okay.
Edit again: What I want to know (yeah, should have said so in the beginning) is not what is out there, I know of many and have some and can Google for a listing, but what do you have experience with, or know of, that is a very good bolt action, 30-06 with external magazine. I'm looking for opinions and respect the opinions in this forum and that's why I'm asking the question here.
