Well - zero experience with BLR but re rotating bolts - I have a Rem 760 ''Gamemaster'' - pump action. This has rotating bolt.

Main thing I find is, it is very fussy about ammo and so I use carefully made handloads or good factory. Poor ammo and either the round is a bear to get into battery with full bolt lock-up - and/or, extraction issues.

That may be a minor point but thought I'd throw it in.

Re cal - well my son has a nice 700 in 7mm mag - great round but IMHO overkill for whitetails - but brutal too. The 30-06 or .308 will do a fine job, especially with something like 165 ballistic tips, Nosler partitions etc.

My 2c - no more :wink:
