    Have you considered checking gun shows and gun dealers for used rifles. You can really find some good bargains out there if you have the time and a little patience. As for caliber I would look at a 30-06, a 308, or a 300 Win Mag. There are other good calibers but these three seem easy to find.

      The Howa 1500 is very worthy of examination. I bought an accurate Howa .223 heavy barreled varminter but the long action is available in .30-'06 and it was very reasonably priced.

        you should go with a Remington 770 because there so cheap but reliable but the caliber is your opinion just try a few and see what you like the best.

          I was handling a Remington 760, .30-06, with a 3-9 variable, yesterday at Cabelas. $279.00. Don,t overlook a good used rifle should your path's cross. A lot of hunter's shy away from pump's, claiming them to be rattle traps, noisy. I haven't found that to be a problem with the .270 I own.

            In my opinion, the best bang for your buck is a Savage. Poke around on their website to see what's available and get a general idea of the prices. My wife's first/only hunting rifle is a Savage 110 in .308. I got it on sale as a wet with an ok scope for I think $349.
