This is my first post, so first of all thank you for allowing me to join your community.
Looking through this forum I see that the CRF type of rifles are the preferred when in dangerous game territory. Is this because of the positive extraction, and the fear with a push feed is that you might fire a round, need another one and the shell doesn't extract?
If this is the fact, can this be remedied by a push feed action with a sako or M16 extractor machined into the bolt?
I ask because I read on this forum that a lot of people have the Ruger's and I went and handled one today (looking for a .338 win mag) and the action felt like garbage. The bolt was ridiculously loose in the action.
I'm leaning towards a Surgeon RLR action with extractor, krieger barrel, and accurate innovations stock, instead of getting a ruger or winnie and having to have it "massaged."
