Even in a firearms market that's overrun by the AR platform and other takes on the modern sporting rifle, bolt-action platforms still have their uses, especially when it comes to stretching the legs of today's popular rifle cartridges. In 2019, several companies have partnered to provide consumers with cutting-edge precision platforms built on the dependable, rugged bolt-action operating system. From heavy bench rifles to handy precision carbines, there's something to fit every need in these seven new bolt-action options:
