Is it worth using an A-bolt as donation rifle? In Belgium Tikka or Sako are almost never seen. Never seen a second hand one in a few years. At the present the A-bolt composite stalker sells for about 600 euro against a T3 lite 1100 euro. The A bolt is only available in 223 , 243 , 30-06 and 300 Win Mag. In the US they seem still marketed, but in Europe they seem to replace it by the X bolt. I think getting a 223 and a 30-06 and put my Zeiss 6x42 scopes on it.
Would it be worth getting an extra A bolt to use the stock and action and have it rebarelled in a foolish moment to something special. Maybe a 243 and rebarrel it into 6,5x47 ?
