Advice on 1st rifle
Just joined, hoping to start hunting next season. I hope this question isnt somewhere else that i missed.
I am going to buy a .270 bolt action rifle for mostly deer hunting. From my research the Howa Hogue, Weatherby Vanguard 2, Savage 116 and Remington 700 all interest me. I dont want to spend a ton of money for my first rifle, but want quality. I also dont want to buy a $400 rifle and after one season wish i would have bought an $800 rifle. I want one to last me a good long time. I've looked at brownings, and not really sure what makes them cost so much more. What would you folks recommend?
Thanks for any advice.
