I know all the arguments about what cartridges and bullets to choose since I have heard them for 40 years since I was hooked on reading everything I could get my hands on about hunting. Where I need some serious advice is the rifle and action itself. I hope Winchester will not be off the market long but there are some other controlled round feed rifles like Kimber and others that I have zero knowledge off. I am looking for a new rifle and my question is about the reliability of the different factory rifle actions or would it be better to try for a budget minded custom or semi-custom rifle. I really would appreciate any help in steering in the right direction here. What do I need to look for in a bear rifle and what do I need to stay away from? I am new to this Bear hunting thing so I need the council of those who have been there and know not only what to choose. Thanks to all those who take the time to help me as you just might save me from making a fatal mistake!
