Mannlicher! The other true bolt action.

Bolt actions are indeed meant for serious long range shooting efforts! My preferred poison is a Colt-Sauer .243 caliber bolt action, paired with a 3 to 9 power Leupold Scope, fitted with Conetrol projectionless scope mounts. Many years back the ground hogs, coyotes and whitetail deer harbored great respect for "my little friend!" The shooter in the picture above isn't bad either. ;)

The rifle side of my gun safe is well stocked with Mauser 98's, one of them with Wehrmacht eagles. Both my .375 and my 6.5 Swede will group into a thumbnail at 100 yards when I do my part. Sadly, I don't look as good as she does.

my safe was full of M98/W70/Dakota for a long time. Then I found the Blaser R8 and that’s all I own from .22LR up to .375, with just two receivers. Ironically, SIG group owns the current Mauser, along with Blaser, SIG Sauer US, Hammerli, Sauer & Sohn, and others. I have managed to accumulate all of these without knowledge of the link. Still, everyone should at least one original 98 converted to civilian use. I still regret selling the 30-.06.
