Bolt action pistol help

I am looking to buy a bolt action pistol for deer hunting and would appreciate some advise. The only bolt action pistols that I came up with are the Weatherby Cfp, Savage Styker, Remy Xp-100 and the HS precision 2000. Are there any more out there that I didn't list? And which one would you recommend and why? Thanks for you help. Joe

    They are good hunting handcannons, my choice would be HS Precision or XP first choice, styrker 3rd, and the weatherby last. had a couple of the weatherby's and just did not like them.
    If you check the classified shere there is a HS in a 243 for sale and it is priced about $600 less than a new one will cost you
    good luck ,
    you should get several responses here as ther are several handgunners on this site.

    Thanks for the good info.. You judged the 4 as I been reviewing it. Unfortunately there's not many good shops by me that would have these guns for me to see.. So this forum is a great place to get some good feedback.. Thanks again

    Theres not to many shops that do have them in stock. I just looked around found one at a good price and bought it. to see if I would like it.

    Now I have no rifles and to many XPS.

    If you like to customize XPs have more smiths and parts running around for them.

    Good luck on your adventure its fun

    Does it have to be a true pistol? It's legal have a pistol stock on a legal rifle as long as the complete firearm meets the Federal 16" barrel and 26" overall length rule. It may not meet some state hunting laws or competition rules.

    Since you are looking at deer hunting with a bolt rig, are you also looking at the potential for distance as well?
    If so, how far would you like to be able to practice or kill, once you become proficient with it?
