Re: School me on bolt action handguns

Thanks for all the input guys, I really appreciate it, I think its fairly to myself and others that I need to do quite a bit more research before I make a purchase, so I will continue to do research and I'm sure I'll be back with more questions.

Again I really appreciate the time and effort you guys have put in to offer advice it is very helpful for a topic that I am a complete novice in

Re: School me on bolt action handguns

A little late to the thread but I as far as xp100r's go. I found one for $700 with the 12x burris in .260 rem. It was well used but still rang steel at 300 with great consistency. I am a personal fan of the internal mag, but I use it for varmints so it's nice to just crank the bolt and pull the trigger repeatedly.
The bad, in the condition it was in, I decided to have it freshened up quite a bit so the total investment goes WELL above the 1k mark you mentioned earlier. As far as your caliber choice. I think the -250 is very marginal where cats linger. JMO though.

If you can make shots with a rifle at 300 to 400 yards what's so difficult with a pistol? Shooting offhand isn't a requirement. Using a pistol with a scope and bipod can be as accurate as a rifle. For moderate to long range, wind deflection uncertainty is most likely to to be the limiting factor on accuracy with a rifle or pistol. It's certainly a good idea to practice with a pistol or a rifle especially to learn how to dope wind.
