Hi guys im new to the fourm. Im 25 yrs old and getting into hunting more and more, have been into guns for a while,since 21, but know im getting into hunting and I think I might have jumped the gun and made a small mistake in a choice i made for a hunting rifle. I bought a weatherby vangaurd a few years ago inticapating to use it and have found out that i think the gun is to much for me. I recently bought a mossberg .30-30 lever action that i love. So im thinking im going to trade my vangaurd in for something more fitting and has less kick if you will. The vangaurd is a .270 and id like to invest in something that shoots more like the 30-30, maybe a .223,243 or 308? Im new to rifle cartidges and could use some help. Right know i like the stevens/savage guns and would like something in the left handed model due to its a PIA to shoot left with a right handed rifle LOL.
