Sako First, Browning second (although they MIGHT be 72degrees, not pure 60?)

come on really, a few extra degree's is too much for you, maybe join a gym? LOL
running 700 actions for so many yrs is so many ways and events
never found it a big deal?

But to each his own
winchesters and Thompson centers I think are all pretty short throws too, weatherby's as well?

Sako,
Weatherby,
Browning,

I think Ruger or one of the newer cheap rifles offer a 60 degree lift.

the first 3 are on my short list of rifles usually.

Ruger American and Precision Rifle (which is a cheap American wrapped in a Cheap Chassis) is a 60degree bolt lift. But not the best.

I hear you, I have a LOT of issue's myself
back, shoulders, elbows, wrist, lung(down to just one there) feet and bad knee's
My list of good parts , IF I even have any left is short,
but I still don't have an issue with the bolt on my gun, a few more degree's and ??
BUT we all have range of motion to live in

Maybe a semi if legal in your state is a option, there are a few GOOD accurate hunting rifles in semi, and NOT just in AR like platforms
most all major hunting rifle makers either have or made some! will have softer recoil too for you, an added perk to a semi!
