    Help me buy a bolt action rifle

    My first instinct from skimming gun forums and history lessons is buy a Winchester Model 70 30.06. However, they seem to range in price from absurdly expensive for ancient guns to suspiciously cheap for normal used age guns. What is the deal with the strange pricing?

    I hear 30.06 a lot so I assume that is what people like but I don't really know. Things that appeal to me about ammo is price and availability. That is why I have a 9mm handgun. What is the 9mm of rifles?

    That would be the Mosin-Nagant in 7.62x54. You can get it for as low as $0.21 a round vs. $0.50 for 30-06.

    The rifles themselves go from around $100-150.

    They also make pretty fireballs of muzzle flash, and are apparently great for sniping the **** out of Nazis.

    Actually, here's one for $69:

    How about a nice Lee Enfield Rifle in 303, say mark III and above?

    Phrost, that gun looks like a piece of crap. Can I really buy a reliable firearm for under $100?

    Also how easy to find is 7.62x54 vs 30.06? I don't exactly frequent gun shops so I'm thinking Walmart or whatever gun store I drive by on the way to hiding in my cabin.

    nagants a solid rifle that performed very well under the worst possible conditions. They are not pretty at all. The reason they are so cheap is beacouse there are so many of them being imported.

    Mosins are pretty reliable as far as I'm aware. Many/most of them are brand new still in cosmoline from WWII.

    You can supposedly get it from Cabelas, but ordering off the Internet is generally the cheapest route.

    I'm actually buying one myself as soon as I have the extra cash (grumble... could have bought 3 if I skipped this fucking site upgrade grumble).

    What caliber ammo can I actually buy at Walmart and other easy to find stores? I feel like eastern bloc calibers may not be easily available. I'm thinking common deer hunting calibers are want I want.

    Ahh, well you can't go wrong with .308. And you have the added benefit of feeding it to some really awesome rifles should you ever decide to buy them.

    I don't know anything about Mossberg rifles (they're mostly a shotgun company afaik). The Remington 700 is the flagship of bolt action rifles in general.
