    Ok im thinkin bout buyin a new rifle for deer and bear and i have about $350-$450 and im trying to figure out what the best caliber would be i live in the northeast and im not the biggest person so i was wondering about recoil as well

    My favorite big gun is the 7mm Remington Magnum; the recoil is very manageable however, I only use a 160 grain bullet. I would look into the 300 Remington Ultra Mag and their Power Level ammunition; it allows you to shoot different grain bullets with similar ballistics.

        Hunterkid,
        Forget that magnum stuff, get a 30-30 or preferably a .35 Rem.

          Look at .270's or 30-06's. They can be bought at good prices and here are two places you can look. If you don't like it, check with a local firearm store.

              30-06 will give you what you want, as there are many levels of out of the box grain levels for almost any game. I think the make of the gun is pretty much what you like best. Good luck with your hunting and welcome aboard.

                    I recommend 30-06 for you.
