I'm in the market for a new deer rifle. I havent ever hunted deer or any big game. Thats why i'm here for tips on what to get. ive narrowed it down to 2 calibars and 2 different brands of rifles. im either going with the Savage axis/edge in .308 or a Remington 700 in .308 or 30-06. I want this to be a hunting rifle and a long distance rifle for the range and just to be able to tell my friends i cant hit targets that are that far away. Im on a budget so price is a problem. Any comments are appreciated. Thanks newtothegame
Just a suggestion...but either the 308 or the .30-06 would be excellent for deer...and both Savage and Remington have well deserved reputations for accuracy and dependability........... I know that different people have different opinions, and you could ask 20 different deer hunters what is the best deer cartridge and rifle, and get 20 different answers.... But...I have a number of deer rifles, and the one I always found myself grabbing first was an old, well-used, plain-jane Savage 110 in .308...... But, like I say, that is just my personal opinion, and what feels "comfortable" to me.
Seems to me that "Time" is merely an artificial concept, created by man, with which to hassel himself.
It's been a while since you asked this question but just wanted to give you a heads up to a good source for affordable hunting equipment - The Sportsmans Guide. I've been using them for years and am very happy with their products.
