Another option is just about any bolt action mil-surp. It would only take a little bit of doing to find a sporterized Mauser or Mosin Nagant. The 8x57 isn't a harsh cartridge at all when loaded by a U.S. company, and the ammo may need to be ordered- but it's plentiful.
The reason I suggested one that has been sporterized is that oftentimes it will have had a replacement stock put on it. A full dress battle (Mauser) rifle will have quite a bit of weight to it.

I'm going to use the words "clip" and "Long Colt" every chance I get. It grinds my gears to see new members attacked when we all know dang good and well what's being refered to.
