Got chatting last night about the most accurate bolt action rifle and ammo combo ever issued to soldiers (without considering limited run sniper or accurised specials). Came up with a shortlist and order of candidates: 1. Swedish Mauser M96 in 6.5 x55 2. Swiss K31 Schmidt-Rubin in 7.5 x 55 Swiss 3. German K98 in 8 x 57 IS 4. Lee Enfield No. 4 in .303 British (also known as 7.7 x 56R in Europe) I also propagated the arguement that most K98's and No.4's have seen a lot of service - everyone I ever laid hands on was well used. Whereas the Swedish and Swiss rifles only ever did range time and guard duty.... Nobody suggested any septic rifles, but I have no idea how good a Springfield etc would be in the illustrious company above. How does the list shape up with our resident shootists?
