8x57 IS VS .303 British VS 7.62x54R Bolt VS .30-06 Bolt

Postby curlyCoyote » April 14th, 2018, 4:20 pm

Which classic gun is better to buy?
It would also be helpful if someone who owns one of the guns described the advantages and disadvantages for each gun.
I am open to more then one gun, but I cant buy all 4.
EDIT: I know that RonMctube has a review for some but I need more then one persons opinions

The .30-06 Stutzen Bolt Action Rifle is a classic rifle but you won't get a classic feeling with that rifle. It is very strong and takes modern scopes.

From the others my preference would be the 7.62x54R Bolt Action Rifle. I think it is the most powerful.

I own them all, they all suck with the crappy scopes they use................. :lol:
If I had to buy them in order,... the Mauser, the Springfield, the Mosin Nagant, then the Enfield.
I pick the K-98 mauser 1st for its damage power, penetration, than satisfaction of weapon performance.
than the Springfield 1903 2nd for its damage power, penetration, than satisfaction of weapon performance.
than the Mosin Nagant 3rd for its damage power, penetration, than satisfaction of weapon performance.
than the Enfield 303 4th for its damage power, penetration, than satisfaction of weapon performance.

Like Hoo, I'd go for the Moisin 7.62x54. The .303 would be my last choice of the classic rifles, after the Mauser 8mm and the Springfield .30-06 and I'm a Brit.

8x57 IS K98k, Gives the widest range of permitted species, it also uses the 4x42mm scope which gives the highest zoom of all the classic rifle scopes.

Mosin is just a beast in every way, only downside is the low power scope but thats not a huge disadvantage

1 - 8x57 (Don't know if it's been reported or it's supposed to sound this way or if anyone cares but there's no sound when loading the 2nd, 3rd and 5th rounds)
2 - .30-06 Bolt
3 - 7.62x54R (I don't like the scope on this one and it sounds like it could use some gun oil :? )
4 - .303 British

4x42 Tip of reticle is pointed (every other classic rifle)
Image

3.5x Tip of reticle is rounded and that's why I don't like it (7.62x54R)

Spoiler:


Don't mind me, I'm just thinking out loud ;) Mike (Seifer210) ♉
