    I'm looking for a 30-06 or 308. I'd like one with a detachable mag. mostly used for hunting, and posssibly competiton shooting. It seems that all the rifles I looked at are box style. Any suggestions where to look?

    All current production CZ 550s in .308 have a 4 round removable magazine. Available in every varient they produce but the Prestige according to the manual. In .30-06 the Standard and Lux are available with a 3 round detachable magazine but may be hard to find or require a special order.

    My CZ 550 Varmit Laminated in .308 happens to be for sale at the moment too as it's been replaced with a Browning A-Bolt Eclipse and a Steyr SSG 69. Don't really need 3 very accurate .308s and the CZ was the least expensive so I'm trying to turn it into $ for other desires :)

    Edit: Steyr ProHunter also has a removeable magazine and is availble in .30-06 and .308. I have one in .270 and it's a fine rifle at a reasonable price.

    The Tikka T3 uses detatchable mags and is guaranteed sub MOA out of the box. There are a few guys on here who own them and from what I've heard they have nothing but great things to say about them.
