Buying a new rifle...need opinions.
3 choices here gents......that is all. If you could own 1 of these rifles to hunt deer with which one would you choose...regardless of price...and why?
1.) Bolt action 30-06
2.) Bolt action .308
3.) Thompson Center Encore single shot in either 30-06 or .308
NOW.....what in your opinion is the best brand of rifle that you chose?
CZ 550 American
Winchester Model 70
I want the "why's" here guys.....I'm finally dumping my Marlin 336C in .35 Remington after 2 years of missed deer and massive frustration. I do a LOT of stalking and need a rifle that can reach out and touch a deer at about 100 yds. I need fast and flat / I need lightweight, I need smaller size.
Well Mainer, my opinion would be a bolt action 30-06. Why? It's the only rifle I really ever messed with. I currently use a Remington 710 30-06. I've used other 06 models in the past and was satisfied with all. However I have heard a few people raving up the Thompson Center Encore models accuracy and such. I think that's the kind that breaks open to load/unload. But when you say fast and flat, lightweight and smaller size a 270 comes to mind. GOOD LUCK TO YOU.
Greetings Mainer, with what you're looking for I have to ask you to take a look at this Rifle
it's the .270 Ruger M77MarkII UltraLight That rifle is exactly what you're looking for but if you're set on your choices I would go with the bolt Action .30-06 Remington 700 the reason I would choose that one would be
the .30-06's Outstandng Reputation and most Remington Rifles are dependable and accurate. GOOD LUCK
I shoot a Rem 700 7mm Rem Mag I like the bolt because of accuracy It had 3 in. groups out of the box.
i shoot a 280 remington and its great but i would say the 30-06 just beacuase of the reputation it has and its really popular so bullets arnt hard to find or expensive
but im 13 so i dunno just my opinion
Id go with the 30/60 for the reasons above.tried and true cant beat a bolt action for reliability and accuracy rem 700
Although not listed as a choice I would take a rem 700 in 25-06 , but from the 2 you put out there I guess 30/06
I use a winchester model 70, 30-06 and it works great very durable and reliable. Shoots very accuratley and at distance. Great Gun.
OK...I decided on the TC Encore....because I've always wanted one.
It's muzzleloader season here now...and I'm starting with the muzzeloader because its cheaper to buy them starting this way.
Help me with the rifle choice.....either the wood and blued barrel or the Realtree and stainless barrel.
Encore Muzzleloading Rifles - Thompson/Center
Please help...the stainless is $100 more...but for looks I'm leaning toward the wood one. I like the classic look.
