I agree with everything mosin just stated. As for the bolt pull on the spring bolt actions, you know its going to vary by what upgrades you have. My CA M24 with a PDI 380% spring won't budge at all if you just hold the rifle by the bolt handle. I can cock my M24 many many times before I get tired and I'm 5'10" and about 145 lbs. Another thing about cocking it is in how you actually grab the bolt handle. I find it much easier to put my thumb on the left side of teh bolt and get my entire hand on the handle.
