Also semi auto rimfires jam fairly easily, unlike a good bolt action rimfire.I agree with Sealer39. A bolt action is more versatile as far as types of ammo that you can use. Most semi autos won't cycle shorts or longs. However. I rarely shoot anything but long rifle ammo.
Any bolt action would be a great choice.
i love collecting milsurps. and old fashion muzzleloader'sSoooo I'm getting the milsurp bug again lol, to go along with my modern 19th century replica bugs. It always fascinates me how so many rounds in the 7-8mm range from the early 20th century still pack awesome power with efficient ballistics. Been tempted to bring one of my 91/30s or even my MAS 36 in past seasons, maybe the time is near finally lol.
I have 3 M91/30s, one M48bo, one SMLE no.1 mk.3*, a MAS 36, one 1895 Nagant revolver, and for older lead slinging a beautiful Uberti 1858 New Army cartridge conversion in .45 Colt. That's just the older style goods lol. But the history of them is incredibly fascinating, each mark tells a story. I haven't gotten into flintlocks or percussion pistols yet, but this year may finally be the year. I've been eyeballing Uberti's Colt Walker revolver and Charleville muskets.i love collecting milsurps. and old fashion muzzleloader's
right now i have an sks and a polish flare gun from the 50s
plus a hawken rifle (percussion) and a Kentucky long rifle (flintlock)
