The rifle in question is a Santa-Fe Jungle Carbine chambered in .303 british. Not much good beyond about 300m thanks to that 20'' barrel, but since I don't have a scope on it, I don't think I'll be taking any shots past 100m anyway.
I don't think your .303 Jungle Carbine is a poor choice at all, there are probably better choices for hunting but the .303 has enough velocity and energy to harvest whitetail deer.
You're fully aware of your weapons capabilities and that's whats most important and as long as you hunt within your weapons hunting abilities I say go for it and Good Luck on the hunt.

Just remember that once you start hunting it may be very hard to stop!! Theres a strong chance it will take over your thinking year round! But I guess that isn't too bad of a thing. Sounds like your off on the right track. Enjoy those moments outdoors!
