    .270 Ruger. It'll be able to take down any kind of North American game.

      depends on where you are hunting and what the target is going to be. i use a .270 and .308 for whitetail hunting in the southeast.

          John Browning designed the most popular lever action in history, the Winchester Model 94, but the BLR is a much more recent design effort by the company that bears the Browning name.

            This is one of the lightest weight and best handling bolt action rifles in production. But the amazing thing is that it is made of walnut and steel, with no aluminum or synthetic parts, and comes with a 22" barrel. It is available only in short action calibers including .243 Win., .260 Rem., 7mm-08, .308 Win., and .338 Federal. Except for the .338 Federal, which is basically an elk caliber, all of the others mentioned here are fine deer calibers. Given the Model 84M's light weight (approx. 5 lbs. 10 oz.) I like it best in .243, .260 and 7mm-08.

              The Marlin 336C is unquestionable one of the most popular, reliable, and effective deer rifles of all time. Its 20" barrel and full length magazine allow it to get on target fast and yet swing smoothly. Overall length is a compact 38.5" and it weighs 7 pounds.

                Remington's entry in the short, light and handy bolt action rifle sweepstakes is the Model Seven. The Model Seven is available with either a walnut (CDL), synthetic/camo (XCR) or laminated wood (LS) stock. The Model Seven CDL is the deluxe version, similar in appearance to the Model 700 CDL.

                  This trim and deadly Mannlicher-stocked beauty is one of the finest bolt action woods and mountain rifles ever made in the USA. With its 18" barrel, trim classic style walnut stock, controlled feed, integral scope base and 38.25" overall length (in short action calibers), the M77RSI is one trim, fast handling, hunting rifle. It weighs 7 pounds and comes with adjustable iron sights.

                      The Remington Model 700 is the best selling bolt action hunting rifle in history, and for decades the definitive Model 700 has been the BDL Deluxe. In recent years it has been joined by the similar but understated CDL version and the lightweight LSS Mountain Rifle.

                        The Model 798 is a complete departure for Remington. It is based on a traditional Mauser 98 type action manufactured for Remington by Zastava Arms in Serbia. This is the real deal in all of its controlled feed glory. It flies in the face of everything Remington has marketed since shortly after the Second World War and the Model 798 barreled action puts Remington's flagship Model 700 action to shame in terms of quality, design, and finish. All the Model 798 really needs is a first rate drop-in stock to make it a deluxe rifle, and our friends at Accurate Innovations can provide that at reasonable cost.

                          The Ruger No. 1 is the single shot rifle that put the type back on the map in terms of popular appeal. A compact, graceful falling block action, black walnut stock, a quarter rib to facilitate scope mounting and a 26" barrel to extract the full potential from long range cartridges are among its best features. Even with its long barrel, the overall length of a No. 1B is 42.25", about the length of most bolt action rifles with 22" barrels.

                            This is the quintessential Weatherby. The Mark V Deluxe is one of the most attractive and best finished rifles on the market, a production rifle loaded with custom rifle features. It is expensive compared to lessor rifles, but a bargain none the less. Value is not so much a matter of price, but a matter of what you get for the money you spend.

                              Those who feel the need for a super accurate, stainless/synthetic, long range deer rifle can probably do no better than the Weatherby Vanguard SUB-MOA Stainless. Many shooters and hunters do not realize that the Weatherby Vanguard is built on one of the best push feed actions in the world. Vanguard's incorporate all of the usual Weatherby performance enhancing features. In addition, SUB-MOA's come with a special hand-laminated Monte Carlo composite stock with a molded-in aluminum bedding plate that stiffens the receiver.
