Ever had your hunting rifle malfunction at the moment of truth? It's a confidence-shaking thing, and can lose you an opportunity at a buck or bull of a lifetime. On dangerous game? Possibly your life.
This episode digs into the pros and cons of various types of bolt-action designs. We dissect the mechanics of push-feed actions compared to controlled-feed actions, and evaluate their various advantages for mountain rifles, dangerous game rifles, super accurate rifles, and so on.
Just as importantly, we discuss which action types are easiest to malfunction, and which actions tend to reduce our human ability to screw them up.
Naturally, the discussion is sprinkled with real-life hunting stories and experiences that support the various points--and of course add some adventure and fun to the topic.
