of all my bolt actions, one of the favorites is the Ruger M77V in 280 Rem. made in 1978. reason is, i had been looking for a rifle in that caliber for over ten years before finding it. finding it in a 26" heavy barreled version was just icing on the cake!
my Marlin XS7Vh in 308 of course! check the thread i started in the bolt action rifle suforum, under XS7VH 308 Project for information on what i have done to thie rifle. there are also pictures of what it looks like.
My favorite bolt is a M24/47 Yugoslavian Mauser that I sporterized about 6 or 7 years ago, it has the original barrel and action.
Mfg from 1924 thru 1932 and rearsonaled in 1947-48. So I had a smith weld a bolt handle on it, drill & tap it, and put a low mnt safety.
I sanded and finished the stock myself. It shoots 1-1/4" @ 100 and 3" @ 200 when I do my part. the four wild shots are getting it zeroed, once zeroed, I fired the 7 shot group with 180 grn Nosler Ballistic Tips @ 2600 fps. Barrel started getting hot, but managed three touching. 8x57 mauser
