Looking for a decent 223 bolt action

Why jump up all the way to 308?

It also uses AR-15 mags.

I love weird stuff like that.

It was a great rifle. Obviously, you never have to worry about jamming and you get that great shuck shuck sound too.

A 17HMR bolt is a LOT of fun. Fairly cheap to shoot. Great short to medium range sage rat gun.

Its always good to have a couple low recoil guns so that shooting is fun. A 308 isn't fun after a dozen rounds or so..

I have a SAKO 223 bolt featherweight, its my favorite gun to shoot ,, wicked light swings fast and no recoil and I can walk all day packing it..

Off a bench its good for < inch groups at 100.. If I hold up my end..
It also seems to shoot any cartridge I shove through it..

The Tikka rifles are very good as well as the savage rifles (Ugly but oh well) and their pricing is great.

Im currently dumping my money into something else, so I think I'll just keep a lookout on the dicks sporting goods circulars and snag a rifle on sale. I think either a Savage or a Remington will suit my needs. I do still want a goldenboy though.

Yea from what I hear, you have to be on top of it. There are lots of "snipers" waiting for these things to go on sale, and they get cleaned out quick. I'll grab the next one I see.

That's the story they tell people...

The reality is that Remington smartly decided to market to the dipshit clownshoe shitass LE administrators who don't want their officers to be armed with scary black rifles like ARs. Putting aside the fact that the general public really does not give two shits, and that the only people who do care are city administration, Remington at least knows how to tap the LE market correctly.

In all reality the .308 is not that massive of a jump from .223 in terms of cost or recoil.
The .308 is a much better long range cartridge than the .223, as most bolt action .223 rifles are not designed for long range precision beyond about 500yds. Most non-custom .223 bolt rifles do not have a tight enough twist to stabilize the heavier 68-80gr OTM loads.
There are better long range loads than .308, but for a beginner it's one of the better cartridges to use due to availability, cost and ease of moderate recoil.

Those little rimfire cartridges are a blast to shoot. Very fun, inexpensive and great for plinking or working on marksmanship.

For most people .308 isn't that bad to shoot. Some people are naturally recoil sensitive, but a lot of times sensitivity from a low round count is attributable to misalignment and improper shooting mechanics. When we do our basic sniper certification courses, the sniper candidates shoot upwards of 100rds per day during the shooting days. Nobody ever has issues. Most are shooting bolt action rifles without brakes.

Mossberg MVP is a great affordable choice, it can use AR15 magazines as well.

CZ 527 - they have a few .223 models - and a 7.62x39 designed to work with crappy surplus steel cased ammo.
