My son, who has recently graduated from college and now has a real JOB, is looking to buy his first bolt action rifle for deer and hog hunting. His caliber of choice (Thank God!) is the ubiquitous .308. My question is which rifle? He’s leaning towards the Sig Sauer Cross rifle because of it’s resemblance to the AR platform. I’m sure the “tacticool” look of the rifle also has a lot to do with his choice. Problem is this rifle has been getting a lot of bad reviews regarding it’s accuracy, bolt not closing easily on loading, magazines not seating properly, etc. Especially since this rifle runs right around 1500 bucks without any glass. There are too many models available to search out everyone of them so I thought asking here might be an effective way of sorting out the chaff from the wheat. Does anyone have any experience and/or knowledge of a good .308 bolt action with a resemblance to the AR platform?
I have a Steyr Mannlicher Shonauer carbine in 308 with mounts and 2.5x7 Leupold click adjustment for $1500 circa 1950's and beautiful.
