I wouldnt advise that to a newbie. Get any local 7mm rifle dude. You can move on to better rifles if you develop a fancy for boltactions in the long run. Most of us get bored with boltactions.

i would say go for a Steyr mannlicher model (Luxus) or if u want better than steyr go for Blaser R-93 model (Attache) these two bolt action guns are amazing

Dear Mamin

"bolt action 8mm mauser 98K" if i m not wrong, i think that was the gun which was used by german soldiers during wwii,that is called 'Karabine"or you may say it german carbine,its long rifle than the original m1 carbine.plz correct me if i am wrong.

303 are cheap here in rwp/isb,as mostly people dont like them,but i think as far as reliablity & performance is concerned,they are good rifles
