That does look interesting. Well, except for that flash hider or whatever it is on the muzzle. You won't come across many modern bolt rifles these days with the iron sights either. I like the Ruger M77 rifles in general, but if I'm getting a bolt action, I'd be less likely to get one with an extended detachable magazine. If you're looking into the faster follow up shots, why not an auto loader like the Rem 742? IMO, a bolt action could be just as fast as a pump. MSRP and actual retail can make up to a $200 difference in price depending.
